Bomber from Coral Bay in Greeley. Pours a yellowish orange with a spongey white head leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma has caramel and pine. And caramel. And pine. And caramel. Very sweet smelling - to the point of feeling my teeth rot. Taste is of sweet caramel, spicy pine and bittersweet orange with a lot of resin. Medium bodied and sticky. Finishes somewhat dry and to the sweet side of bittersweet. Some alcohol. A thick caramelly resinous brew. No clue on the bottle date.

Beaver (1339) - 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.

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

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!

wchesser (1244) - 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 I’m back in NM...).

The pour is a clear, orangey golden color with a full, white, creamy, fluffy head which settles to a fluffy, rocky layer and leaves scattered, sporadic lace. The nose is a bit bland with pink grapefruit, black pepper, light florals, some pine, light caramelly notes, and some cracker. The flavor is similar with equal parts cracker, pepper, caramel, and resin, still some pink grapefruit, and light rustic notes. The palate is nearly full, nearly lively, oily, and velvety. The beer finishes with a moderately high bitterness, black pepper, resins, slight caramel, and some rustic lingering. Actually a decent IPA/IIPA beer; the fruity citrus and slight caramel added sweetness to the quite bitter, spicy, and resinous beer. The dryness was matched by spice and citrus to avoid any over dry beer. Not very familiar with this brewery but I like them so far.

ajm (1066) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Tap at the brewery. This was effing solid, just like their single IPA. Nose of orange peel, malt, resin and dank hops. Flavor very much the same - a perfect bitter twang where the hops overbalance the malts just so. Fragrant and refreshing.

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.
