Bottle, courtesy Brigadier, thanks for landing this whale. Pour is clear gold, white head, little retention but good lace. Aroma is quite catty, floral/pine hops, light caramel. Taste is very bitter, catty/floral/pine hops, caramel malt. Palate is soft, oily, very bitter finish.

PhillyCraft (3875) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle compliments of Mark, shared with Alen before the Funky Buddha event at Blue Dog. Pours hazy copper orange with small to medium snow white head. Aromas are in your face dank and super juicy: mango, tangerine, butter, smooth caramel malts. Taste is much of the same with a dry piney wood quality mixed in with the creamy malts and citrus fruits. Unbelievable ipa, aroma was a 10 but the taste lacked some of the juiciness. Medium bodied, a little bit sugary, but still dry enough to session on.

trumpetskid (106) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2013
aroma is some citrus, malt, alcohol astringency. The taste is bitter hops, a bit of citrus, and the alcoholic harshness, which I don’t care for. The astringency goes away as my taste buds get numbed, and more of the sweet citrus comes through. I enjoyed the second half of the bomber much more than I did the first half.

beernbourbon (1380) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle. Pour is clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is caramel malt, citrus hop, light pineapple, light pine hop, and faint orange. Flavor is bursting with bright hops: orange, pine, and faint spice. Also notes of honey and lightly sweet malt in the finish. There is a slight tingling on the tongue with the hops kick in. Big but pretty well-balanced.

vt3stick (103) - Chicago, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Batch 87. Super dry nose with notes of pine and citrus. Delivers the hop boom as expected but remains crisp and finishes nicely.

Dogbrick (9346) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle shared by a friend. This brew pours a hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Tropical fruits, hops and malt in the nose. Medium to full body with a citrusy hops character and flavors of grainy malt and pine. The finish is tropical fruit and lingering resiny hops. Good beer all around.

douglas88 (7180) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2013
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.

TheEpeeist (3520) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2012
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 (2086) - 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.
