COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust renovation of the India Pale Ale. Assertive dry-hoppying provides an aromatic telltale nose, indicative of the bitter symphony to follow. Bold hop character with lively grapefruit and citrus notes. 20° Plato, Alc. 9.4% by Vol.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2011 Pours a clear golden amber with a thick sponge off white head. Aroma is quite hoppy. Flavor is also, but smooth and not bitter. Slight taste of roasted malts.

Bomber: Average DIPA at best. With so many other options out there for IPAs and DIPAs, pass on this one.

12 oz bottle...a rather piney DIPA with some decent hop notes and complex and well balanced maltiness.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2010
22 oz bottle from Liquor Barrel. Cloudy, dark orange pour with a fluffy two finger head. Hoppy (citrus) aroma slightly malty. Flavor is very hoppy with some citrus notes and a malty backbone, pretty bitter. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy with a bitter finish.

PhilJackson80 (499) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 12, 2014
22 oz Bomber. Tasted on 10/11/14. Beer courtesy of Chae. The beer has a deep copper color & medium head. The aroma had some pine & light citrus notes. The taste was smooth & well balanced with a great body & a dry clean finish. Overall a pretty nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SHANER4 (483) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Poured cloudy copper color from 12 oz bottle. Aroma is caramel sweetness with little hop scent. Taste is like eating caramel candies, butterscotch mixed with pungent hops. Palate is medium and finish is dry. Overall a unique tasting iipa. I prefer citrus and more bitter tastes in a iipa but that being said a decent brew.

Wombata (482) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 26, 2010
As I didn’t take notes at the time, I’ve just estimated my score. My original range was 36-38, which I consider Good to Very Good.

ellolovey (479) - Georgia, USA - FEB 21, 2013
12 oz bottler. Pours a copper color with a soapy white head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops. Taste is just like nose. Citrus and pine with a subtle caramel to balance. Nice Imperial. Not as bitter as the nose would lead to believe. Dry citrus rindy finish.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Ruby amber pour, warm orange highlights and topped with a creamy, one-finger, off-white head from the bomber courtesy of dkachur (thanks, Dan!): Nose of orange marinade, summery citrus (lemon) oils, honeydew, herbs, toffee, maple syrup, bran flakes, and buttered toast, all backed by solid caramel malts. Taste is similar, surprisingly spicy at that first second, but carefully blending into a smooth, thick resinous feel. Medium-bodied, mildly carbonated. A bit too syrupy sweet at times, but that can be overlooked. It’s an enjoyable brew. Drinkability: Bold notes, nothing hidden. Pairing: Beefsteak burger, lots of cajun garlic fries. Rebuy: Probably. #462 on 12062010, DG.

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Pours a transparent orange-amber with a sizable light tan head. Assertive citrus and some piney hop aroma. Syrupy, with a strong malt flavor, which to me somewhat undermines the hop flavor. The alcohol flavor is a little too noticeable for my taste.
