COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An aggressive and old-school American Double IPA here, and a well named one, as this beer rips out your palate and the flies off to regurgitate it into the mouths of its frenzied young. Its combo of five malts and six hops creates a unique experience too. Anyone who touts themselves as a true hophead should seek out this beer now. Malts: Specialty 2 Row, Wheat, Munich, Vienna, CaraMunich 40. Hops: Warrior, Cascade, Amarillo, Summit, Pilgrim, Centennial. Dry Hop: Amarillo, Summit, Simcoe.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This is hazy and honey golden. A good amount of carbonation floating up. In the aroma I get tangerine and caramel. Lots of fruit, actually. The flavor brings a lot of fruit and a lot of malts. This was never bitter and the citrus grew. It did not get to grapefruit level but was nice. Candy was tasted but i could not figure out what kind of candy.

From a 22 oz bottle poured into a shaker. Aroma is immediately spruce and then citrus. Itís a clear golden color with a white, frothy head. Great lacing as I drink this. Taste is a medium bitter, and its slightly sticky and a bit thick on the palate. Carbonation is average and the finish is short, but not abrupt. I like double IPAís, and this is a decent one, but thereís something interfering with the taste that makes it seem just a bit off from where it should be. Iím thinking itís the alcohol coming through (which is 10%). I would definitely drink this one again though.

Sledutah (4689) - Utah, USA - MAY 30, 2014
22oz bottle picked up in Vacaville
Cloudy amber with a medium sized off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts and grapefruit. Taste is sweet caramel and pine resin
OK, but sweeter than I like in a DIPA

GJF (1250) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bomber from Hy-Vee. The bottles are gushers as if infected, but then doesnít seem so and isnít overcarbonated. Itís a very malt heavy beer--a little on the syrupy side, but generally a very good, semi-sweet beer with a lot of hop flavor at the end. Not quite bitter enough, but tasty.

Lagerboy (1233) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Bomber. Cloudy brown-ish orange, foamy off-white head settles and lasts. Strong malt/PNW hop aroma and taste, spicy, herbal, citrus, pine, caramel and toffee, medium roast. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, more aggressively hopped. Has an ABV bite, resinous, floral, some grapefruit. Definitely a bigger beer, and: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

Sampled in a bottle. A mild ipa with a large hop palate. A light clear white head. Good hop blend.

Not a terribly spicy IPA, but a solid beer. Love how it sits in the mouth, nice and comfy, like a baby boy on his pa

No aroma. Taste is lackluster, there might be more flavors but I can't find them. I feel like if the alcohol content was lower I would be able to taste more. Eh.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (North Hills), Raleigh, NC. Murky dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind, tangerine, and pine. Awesome, super hoppy and malty flavor of grapefruit, brown sugar, pineapple, caramel, and wet grass. While plenty hoppy, this beer offers a considerable amount of malt and is nearly reminiscent of a barleywine. Exceptional.

Bottle pours hazy copper. Nose syrupy malt, toffee, dank hop. Taste strong bitter up front, followed by alcohol. Heat and slight medicinal. Minimal balancing sweetness. Bitter finish. Actually drain poured this one.
