4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium fluffy off-white head that has great retention. The aroma is somewhat mild with oranges, tangerines, bubble gum and caramel. The flavor is vibrant tropical fruits with a big pineapple presence, add in some tangy tangerine, bitter grapefruit and not-to-sweet caramel. The palate is full and viscous with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: First rate DIPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark gold with a slight foamy whitish head. Aroma of sweet caramel and a large load of mixed exotic fruits. Med + body. Flavor is strongly hoppy - fruity hoppy - with some sweetness. It doesn’t seem dank, but there’s so much hop it should be. Grape seems prominent. Heat doesn’t seem an issue. I could continue to go in circles on this, but, heck, time to start drinking seriously.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from Bine and Vine shared with drsordr. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma opened with a strange sulfur note that distracted, but soon disappeared clearing the way for more expected notes of candied fruits, resin, spicy hops. The flavor had more candied citrus, apple, resin, spicy hops, toasted malts try to balance, caramel, sweetness is a bit more than I would hope to see, moderate bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pours lightly hazy avg gold with moderate white head. Nose immediately on opening some strange sulfur smell, but then cleared. I’m sure no one broke wind in the room. After a minute, nose dank hop, some earthy, and caramel. Taste big bitter bite up front, then some jolly rancher green apple, candied fruit, and sweet malt. Mid palate moderate bitter continues to finish. Hides the alcohol pretty well.

Impressive beer; wow. Fruit filled palate with complex hops throughout. Too easy to drink for a 10.5%. This is a big mother of a beer and loved every sip.
