Rich hazy copper hued with a thin foamy tight head. Smooth earthy copper malty, boozy, with a thick his out malt and a thin leafy/piney bitterness. Big copper malty and boozy body as well, with a big resinous leafy hop bitterness, a load of citrus rind, and a thick boozy pale malt+biscuit finish.

Certainly on the maltier side in body, the hops mostly create a dry finish more than anything else. A little citrus. This seems stuck between a full force double IPA and a standard IPA.

Braudog (6342) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle. Musty orange with a poofy top. This has a wild side in both the aroma and palate ... the wet, mushy character dominates, with little left in your palate to appreciate what little citrus fruit you can discern. (#6159, 3/29/2016)

bhensonb (14092) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Bomber at 8% from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours bright gold with a white head. Aroma is a bit dank with lots of cooked stone and tropical fruits. Med + body. Flavor is rather dank, with something cooked/roast caramel, and a lot of bitter grapefruit, maybe pineapple, certainly unusual fruits. It is bitter. My tongue has surrendered. Great impact, taste wise. You want it bad, you get it bad here. Bad = bitter! Yum!

Ibrew2or3 (8159) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2015
22oz bomber called The Big Office at 8% pours with an opaque deep gold body that supports a thin off white head of foam that leaves behind spotty lacing. The aroma offers up a blend of resiny pine hops, the malty base and then pineapple and a sliver of grapefruit. The taste starts pretty smooth with malts and malt sweetened pine hoppiness. It quickly gets into malt sweetened resiny sticky pine hops as well as lesser amounts of pineapple and grapefruit fruity hoppiness that is largely bitter but also a dash juicy. Pretty nice firmly hopped firmly resiny brew.

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours bright hazy orange with little head. Nose is punchy pineapple and apricot immediately as you pour before some pine and resin play a nice part. The taste is predominately sticky, stewed stone and tropical fruit with a fairly mild resinous characteristic throughout which gives it a west coast feel. It finishes a touch short but it is damn refreshing and drinks much easier than the abv would suggest. Tasty stuff

Davros (2782) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 2, 2014
Pours amber, almost no head. Nose shwos resinous, piny hops. A lot of caramel as well. Very malty. Malty flavours too, some caramel followed by a little pine and resinous hops, finishing with an aggressive by balanced bitterness.
