Pours a light orange. Big hop aroma when I open the bottle. I like it but I would not consider it an imperial. The ABV is well hidden. Hops are nicely balanced with some dank and floral notes mixing. Bitterness isn’t super strong or lasting but it comes across well.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a clear orange with a large white head. Aroma is deffinatly citrus fruity hops. I have never heard of mosaic or calypso hops but they are quite fruity. Flavor is a let down. Sure there is a decent fruity hop but no where near intense as a DIPA should be. It has a dry maltyness and the finish leaves some of the hops but again nothing over the top like it should be.

Bright earthy, grassy, and citrusy hop profile. Pours a golden color from 12 oz bottle. Hop bitterness is pine like with some resinous after taste. A wonderful Imperial IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma ha a nice pungent citrusy hop texture with grapefruit predominant in the scent. Appearance is a clear golden with a thick white head that linger around for a while. Taste is quite nice with the hops punching you in the mouth, grapefruit, lightly astringent, candy, and light pine notes. Palate has got medium to high carbonation with a lingering hop aftertaste. Overall, Pretty good stuff. Cheers!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber pours a clear dark golden color with averabe white head and lacing. Aroma is full of honeydew melon, with some floral hops, peach, and a bit of caramel. Taste is fruity sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Aftertaste is honeydew. Body is medium with lively carbonation.Mouthfeel is slightly sticky. Could have better balance. A bit of a disappointment for an IIPA, my favorite style, but by now I am surprised when anything from New Belgium exceeds my expectations.

Clear golden in appearance. Looks like a premium lager sporting a pure white head. Fruity citrusy hoppy floral aroma. Tadte is candy sweet floral. I have mixed feelings about this beer. It hides its alcohol well. It tastes amd smells good and bad all at the same time every other sip. Se la beer.

Bottle. Cloudy, brownish pour with long lasting head, good lacing. Nose is pine, clean malts, peach, orange. Flavor is fairly bitter, melon, unripened honeydew. Tastes just like biting into a honeydew, but if that honeydew was exceedingly bitter. I’d like to. Try these hops in a less bittered IPA/extra pale ale.
