Hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma is lost on my stuffed up nose :( Taste is caramel malt, lots of citrus hops, some floral notes, warming alcohol. A top notch DIPA with a serious hops punch.

Big hops, tons of pink grapefruit, not overpowering. Perfect balance. On the lighter side for being a big beer. Long finish, amazing.

This is a well balanced DIPA, just the right citrus note, not too bitter, great malt backbone. Very good!

Pours a bright orange gold. Itís quite hazy. The head is about medium sized and pure white. Seems fairly sticky. Aroma is big on tangerine rind and pine resin. It gets a touch acetone-ish, some sort of harsh hop note that comes up in DIPAs, at times. Pineapple, a bit floral. Mildly grassy. Just a touch of malt sweetness and booze. Unfortunately, the taste is harsher and loses a lot of what delicacy was present in the aroma. Itís relatively dry - thereís still a good dose of simple malt sweetness in there. Lots of pine resin and citrus rind. A dose of booze. The bitterness is pretty high and drowns out the hop flavor too much for my liking. Mouthfeel is fairly harsh. Pretty light for the abv. Some definite hop oiliness and body from the malt. Itís a pretty good DIPA, but it feels somewhat dated. This beer doesnít have the massive wave of complex hoppiness in the taste, and while the aroma is enjoyable, itís still not juicy like the top examples of the style. Thereís nothing really wrong with the beer, given the abv, but I was expecting more. Still, Iím quite happy to try it.

Bomber into a "hot" snifter from dld 2013 compliments of AndyReynolds. Now is cat urine and grapefruit. Quite hoppy. Batch #375/376. Tasty.
