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.

drsordr (1197) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle pour hazy dark gold with moderate white head. Nose resin and dank but also papaya and kiwi. Taste big bitter bite up front then some fruit hop. As it warms more sweet malt and juicy hop comes out. Mid palate mix dank hop and sweet malt then late alcohol. Long bitter finish. The juicy hop seems to be battling with astringent /alcohol flavors. Much better just off room temp.

This double IPA pours a dark gold color with a tiny white head. Nose of pungent hops dominate. Resinous bitterness confounds the tastebuds with a bit of a malty backbone; a medium body. This beer is bold, but lacks a true identity in and of itself.

SotallyTober (19) - Channahon, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Bomber batch 533-534. Pours a hazy golden amber with thick off white head. Light lacing left throughout. Has a sweet apricot, mango, grapefruit, and pine aroma. Mildly bitter taste that was medium bodied and slick on the palate.

BLADT (653) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2014
On tap at Bad Apple. Clean amber gold. Solid head. Full nose of grapefruit and pine. Super inviting. Fresh. Taste is resinous. More grapefruit. This beer delivers.

MSBrindbergs (406) - Solna, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2014
Bomber på Babajan. Klar gyllenbrun vätska med vitt skum. Har alla rätta dofter, kraftigt övermogen mango, viss citruston och en hel del granskog. Fin tropisk sötma, kaxig beska som inte tar över helt dock. Perfekt i kolsyremängd. Påminner en hel del om 60 minute IPA tycker jag. Glad som fan att jag fick ticka! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NeoHippie2 (1057) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle. Golden pour with an off-white head, Aroma is sticky citrus hops. Flavor is floral and citrus hops upfront with a nice malt backbone. Well-balanced and very drinkable.

BOSSbrewer (1885) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle at Butler's tasting thanks to Craig. Pours golden yellow with a thin off white head. Aroma is malty with some caramel and some pine resin. Finishes like fruit loops. Good bitterness. Really nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Habanero (2712) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a small, off-white head. Aroma of citrus fruts, peach and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and nice bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A lovely DIPA indeed.

ChrisSc (222) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bomber into tulip. Minneapolis. Appearance: Golden in color. Fairly clear. Small head when poured. Little retention. Aroma: Tropical fruits - pineapple, mango, citrus. Malty backbone. Taste: Mild bitterness. Palate: medium body. Bitter finish. Overall: Maltiness is nice. Bitterness is stronger than I would prefer.
