wchesser (1143) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2011
Bomber. Poured cloudy (suprisingly)...cleared some with some time. Good carbonation and a medium head. Pleasant sweet floral and honey nose. Nice medium body and deep gold orange color. Good bitterness upfront-not a hop bomb-and a clean malty backbone with a sweet finish. Great balance. Would definitely get again (next time Im back in NM...).

From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 18/09/2010 Big hop aroma. Clear golden coloured and extremely hoppy with a pine flavour. A hint of dryness in a very bitter malt finish.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2011
from the cask at papago 7/28/10. clear. worn penny - rich coppery color with a soft airy cask head. it smells like sunshine would!... resinous, orange, grapefruit, wood, flowers and caramel. the palate is a touch sweeter than i would ideally like but it is incredibly hoppy... citrus, dank, wood, toasty grain, caramel and a little ashiness on the finish. the body is a bit too rich and slick for me toward the bottom of the glass but in small doses or with regular carbonation i am sure this is quite good. 8/3/7/3/15/3.6

blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Composite review of tap and bottle samples. Currently the 22 oz. bottle is in front of me. Pour: clear golden body with large white head. Aroma: orange and grapefruit, caramel. Taste: quite hoppy without being very bitter, full of smooth and resinous hops qualities, plenty of juicy citrus, not many malt characteristics other than white-bread sweetness, alcohol well hidden. Aftertaste: more hops bitterness. Mouthfeel: a bit thin for the style, yet succulent. Overall: a DIPA that provides complex layers of hops characteristics, avoiding explosive bitterness in favor of a more deep and subtle experience. It gets better and better as you drink it.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
GABF 2010. Pours a clear bright orange with a thin lasting head. Aroma is big dank weedy hops with a more floral light tone with pear juice, lemon and orance citrus zest and a medium caramel toasty malt backbone. Flavor is light sweetness, honey, caramel, toast, then grassy hops, herbal floral then pear and weedy dankness. Clean and nice bitter finish. Pretty good.

ttutony (643) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Transparent golden color. Bold, fragrant hops with fruit and resin notes. Great bitterness on the palate but not in any way out of balance. Highly recommended for fans of the IIPA.

Bomber from Liz. Pours light amber with a 3 finger foamy off-white head. Aromas of pine and grapefruit rind. Med body; frothy carb. There is so much hop it burns! Full of fresh pine and citrus. A little caramel underneath. Just excellent. Resin all over. Going astringent!

nearbeer (3660) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2010
Bomber dated 10-06-10. Hazy, burnt orange with a lasting cap of cream. Nose of orange blossom honey, fresh grain, and juicy citrus. Light-medium body is a bit too watery, but smoothly carbonated and well-dried by the hops. Flavor is resin, grapefruit, Honey-nut Cheerios, and some oak in the long finish.

Lyncham (251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2010
Draft, 1 oz sample at the GABF in Denver. Nice IPA with goldern brown color. Heavy hopped with citrus and piney flavors. Oily palate. Medium body. Malts take a back seat to the hops.
