Triple dry hopped and at 10% ABV, more than one of these bad boys will cause you to howl at passing strangers and chew up your toys, or anything else you can get your sharp little teeth on.

Bomber purs aclear orange/amber color with decent off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel malts, but there;s a touch of the requisite citrus and floral hops here, too. Body is medijm with average carbonation. Tastes sweet at first with some bitterness in the short finish.. Body is medium to full. Alcohol is discernable, but thereísnothing foul in this. Iím glad to have tried this one, an average or better IIPA.

halfonit (1214) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pours a deep and dark amber/brown color with a thick off white head. Aroma is of hops, malts, bread, some caramel, and some earthiness. Flavor is quite a bit more malty than I was expecting. Thereís definitely a hop presence and some booziness that comes right up front but it then smooths out and finishes with a subtle sweetness. Glad to have had this one.

ElGaucho (2285) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bomber. Caramel notes in in the nose are hindered by old, wet leaves. Mostly clear light amber with a thin, off-white head. Nice lace. Flavor is much better than the aroma. A very unique double IPA. Softly carbonated with caramel notes. Hops are hidden behind the alcohol. Warming, moderately sweet. Some pepper in the finish. A good brew, and one of the few Iíve had from the state of Idaho.

daleharshman (970) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bomber purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar ($6.29). Pours a clear orange-amber color with two fingers of long-lasting creamy white head which leaves some really good lacing. Aroma of sweet spiced caramel, spruce/pine forest, grapefruit zest, and some floral hops. Flavor of soapy caramel, grapefruit, pine needles, some sticky fruit, bready malts, and vegetal hops. Finishes somewhat bitter, somewhat sweet. Doesnít conceal the big 10.85% quite as well as it should, but itís not too boozy. Quite maltyÖseems to lean more toward a hoppy barleywine than a DIPA.

Poured a golden color with a big creamy looking head. Lots of lacing. Immediate aroma of hops, but its a malty hop smell, makes it sweet. Taste is slightly bitter, but malty with some caramel. Donít think this leans towards the floral side. Much more pine and malt. Medium bodied to full, with a thick and sticky taste. This is especially true as it warms. The malty character comes out and it becomes thicker.

Very hazy amber beer, big frothy pale tan head. Semi soft palate, smooth. Creamy smooth malt. Bitterish water chesnuts that remind me of Deus. Seamlessly blended orange and pine hop. A little aniseed in the smooth finish. Nicely joined up and unusual DIPA. Where does the water chesnut flavour come from? Bitterish aftertaste.

Nuffield (3771) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Clear amber with a billowing head. Reasonably good aroma but vegetal/grassy notes predominate before the bitterness starts to build through the finish. Fine but below average in the Imperial IPA world, which has some really outstanding beers. Bottle.

hazy amber/brownish pour with a medium head. aroma is strong caramel, bready maltiness and piney hop. Flavour is interesting mix of sweet bready malt. Slightly syrupy alc presence, floral and piney bitterness towards the finish.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours cloudy dark gold with a thick frothy head and lots of lacing. Citrus and bread dough aroma carrying over to the flavor. Bitter finish.

Bomber poured into a tulip glass. Pretty dark orange color with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy but nothing special. Tastes sweet and piney with notes of citrus. Pretty good beer overall but not an elite imperial ipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
