UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 Bottle during the Superbowl; I apologize for the brief notes. This is a fantastic IPA, bursting with fresh, juicy hops. Very tropical rather than citric, with great balancing bitterness. Perfectly dry. Acquire at any cost. Wish I had a case of this to drink for myself.

Bomber pours somewhat hazy orange yellow with copper hues here and there with thin white head. Kind of un-assuming look to it. The aroma is . . .drool inducing chewy hoppiness from front to back with bold spicy hop notes grudgingly giving up a bit of ground to some earthy dankness and brighter notes of lemon like acidity and tropical fruit notes. Wowzers! Very nice, the taste does not dissapoint after the wonderful snoot full of hoppy aromatics. The taste has the same bold chewy spicy hop notes mixing with citrus like grapefruit and malt sweetened lime juice. This slides hoppy like into the finish leaving hoppy spicy and citrus goodness lingering deep into the after taste. I could serious drink a shit-ton of this! Well done. Big bold and dangeriously drinkable.

Thanks to Abull55. This one is quite the treat. Hazy orange pour with intense tropical fruit, mango, oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, fresh green nuances and malt is subtle. Flavor is intense fruity and citrus hops all over the front end and throughout. some caramel malt sweetness in the end with a full body for the style and bitterness in slightly lingering but does not really jump out at you. Smooth and great. Fresh and intense. Sweet but bitterness accommodates. pleasure.

Sample at Falling Rock Beer Tasting with Dr. Bill on 10/13/2012. Hazy golden pour with a medium thick fluffy white head that dissipates slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of pineapple, sweet malt and hops. Medium-bodied with a tropical fruit character and notes of biscuit malt and grassy hops. The finish is fruity with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Very good all around.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle got at the farmers market. Taste is packed with light tropical flavors, not as hoppy as the average dipa. Amazing beer and worth the wait. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at Sander’s in NYC. Pours clear gold with a crothy white head. Smells unbelievable. Loads of juicy citrua, mandarin orange, straw, pale malts. Medium sweet flavor, lots of juicy and somewhat gooey citrua fruits, a bit of bitter citrua rind, grapefruit, melon, orange. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation. Restrained resinous finish, glorious citrus fruits, grapefruit, orange, sweet pale malts. Well, I think this beer is unreal. Wonderful stuff.

On tap at Prohibition Pig: pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma citrus heavy. Flavor is grapefruit, mango and pepper on the back end. Malt balances the hops well. Full flavor, perfectly carbonated this is an awesome beer.
