Very bready and the hops were a bit underwhelming. It tasted like the hops were stale or not covering the full palate of flavors necessary from a double IPA.

22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to a dark copper color with a thick off white head. The aroma is very strong with floral, resin & alcohol scents to it. The taste is medium body with a slightly bitter finish. This is a very smooth DIPA. Overall it is a very good DIPA.

Drank in tulip glass poured from bomber from alaska. Aroma - not much of an aroma clean scent. Not heavy on hop aroma. Appearance - beautiful glowing orangish red. Burnt rubber color. Taste - boom. Fantastic. So smooth and tasty with just enough bitterness. Loving it. Palate - nice bitter finish. Overall - very very enjoyable. One of my favorite DIPAs.

12 ounce pour at the brewery, extremely muddy pour, flavor hides the alcohol well.

22oz bottle shared by madbeerbaron. Thanks ben. Pours amber wit a half finger of off-white head. Aroma of citrus and grapefruir. Taste is on the sweet side. Big caramel kick in the face but ends with a decent citrus zip. Overall, pretty good. I would drink it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber shared by Ben, pours a clear amber with a thin head, the aroma was of straight malt and caramel, maybe just a little bit of hops mixed in there, but way sweeter than I was expecting. The flavor is much of the same, big malty front end with a sweet finish with a touch of hops, not bad by any means, just not the nice hoppy iipa’s I look for.
