Bomber. Batch 48. Pours a somewhat cloudy copper color with a large thick white head. A nice fruity nose with some spices and pine. An excellent flavor: rich citrus, light resin, massive citrus, certainly must be citra hops here as part of the mix, some light bitterness. Very full flavored. Great creamy palate. Excellent brew. Really clean and tasty, loads of tangerine and lemon/grapefruit. Lively. Lower alcohol then one might assume and drinkable as hell.

22 oz bottle. Misty orange with a pocked white head. Nose a wonderful citrus melange with grapefruit, orange, pineapple, pine and toffee. Resiny medium body with a tingle. Taste is pine, grapefruit, lemon and nectarine. Not as fruity as the aroma but still bursting with juicy goodness. Perfect balance with a pithy finish.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Rerate 2-17 batch 87. Shipped out on tuesday. So much fresher than last time. Fantastic hop citrius bomb. Good amount of bitterness. Fantastic. Easily on the same level as dreadnaught. Original rating 12-29 3.4 Batch 33. Probably a bit old. Golden pour. Hop aroma. Slight citrius. Some flour perfume to it. Fair amount of bitterness. Ok nothing special.

blklab2007 (2069) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle batch 48 poured a dark amber color with a covering of off white head that retained a thin layer. Aroma has light citrus, a fair bit of malt, flowery perfume, and pine. Mouth feel is medium and there is medium low carbonation. Flavor brings in some bitterness, citrus, resins, underlying malt, and some sweetness finishing with perfume.

zgaier (1549) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Pours golden with a white head and aroma of hops and pine. Taste is sweet, of fresh hops, pine, citrus, and floral notes with a bitter, burning finish. Delicious, enjoyable double IPA

Pours a golden rusty hazy color. Nose is full of citrus and pine. Taste is full of citrus and pine and packed with flavor. Finish is bitter sweet, carbonation is soft with a moderate texture. Drinkable and enjoyable.

thedm (5006) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 25, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated dark yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was malty and musty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of wheat and crisp yet thick hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

fuertecorn (15) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Super fresh bottle. Clerk at Binny’s sait it was bottled only a day or two before. Pours a pale hazy golden color. The nose of this bee is absolutely fantastic. Loads of tropical fruit, citrus, some floral and pine elements in play as well. Really well done. The flavor is like hop joy in you mouth with a nice, dry body and the perfect amount of malt character. One of my new favorites.

Truly a great beer. Smells like ninja with notes of unicorn. Taste is as colorful as the label on the bottle.

bytemesis (4104) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle - thanks Drew! Pours clear light amber with a medium off-white head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Tons of visible carbonation in the beer. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, spruce, resin, quite nice. Flavor is resinous, lightly sweet and medium bitter, with a lasting bitter finish. Full bodied and oily in the mouth. Quite the nice hop bomb, with a dangerously well masked ABV.
