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 I’m back in NM...).

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle. Poured pale with a creamy off-white head that left good lacing. Aroma of malt and resin hop with a slight hint of grain. The flavor found floral and resin hops with a light malt backing. Medium body and a medium bitterness.

bleeng (1652) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Bomber thanks to my cousin Linda. Deep gold, slightly hazy with a nice white fluffy head. Sweet, resiny, fruity nose. Taste of the same with alcohol very evident. Very carbonated with some nose bubbles. Medium palate. Very drinkable and well done.

strongpieman (1644) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bomber. Cloudy yellow / gold brew with a white foamy head that clings. Grassy hop aroma, medium body with thickness that coats the mouth. A lasting finishn that is more soft than sharply bitter. A very good stronger IPA.

Beaver (1610) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2012
22oz bottle. Pours clear yellow gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is tropical fruits and resiny piney hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel malts and tropical fruits with a big resiny piney floral hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery with low carbonation.

Overall, a solid DIPA.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Ancient backlog, from tap. Aroma of resin, flowers, pollen, citrus. Flavor again very resinous with big sweet malts as well as lemon and marmalade. Not too sweet for a DIPA when all is said and done. Gets a bit grassy as it goes. Still quite solid.

On tap at Cafe Pasqual’s in Santa Fe. Quite nice with lots of fresh hops. Went really well with the southwestern lunch.

Picked it up at Trader Joe’s in Albuquerque, N.M. Poured from a bottle into a small glass (maybe eight ounces) that I had in the hotel room in Albuquerque, N.M. on April 20. About two fingers of head. Color was a hazier version of the regular IPA and more orangish. Cloudy, pillowy lacing on the top. Tons of film on the side of the glass. Wet, cobwebby. Good-smelling beer. Got the citrus hope I was expecting, but it wasn’t overwhelming. Good balance of lemon, tangerine and grapefruit (but once again, not overpowering). Light smell of caramel. Bitter notes on the nose after awhile. The taste certainly didn’t disappoint, In fact, it reminded me a bit of the Firestone Double Jack. Just a nice smooth taste of hops and caramel, carefully balancing each other out. Medium-to-light body. Creamy finish. Average carbonation. Long-lasting, smooth finish, just a small note that it is strong. Really, really enjoyed this beer. You’re going to get drunk, but you may not notice it right away. To me it still seems close to Firestone’s Double Jack. Just a good Double IPA.

Orange and hazy. Moderate head. Nose is rich with resinous, tropical fruit, ripe grapefruit, pineapple, and other fruit intensity. Even some soapy hop aromas mixed in. Flavor is some sweet bready and caramel malts with a semi sweet but bitter finish. Medium body. Rich texture with moderate carbonation on the back end. Like this one. Thanks trukpro!
