Huhuhuhuhuhuh, man this beer was ridonkulous. Soft pale blonde pour with one finger of white head. The nose is just nuts, incredibly strong/intense. You can smell it from several feet away. Lots of fresh fruit/citrus, tropical fruit, very juicy. Intensely hoppy and grassy with tons of raw tropical fruit in the flavor. Wonderful mouthfeel palate/soft light-medium body with a moderate and zesty bitterness. Fuh-hantastic beer.

hombrepalo (1826) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bomber. Clear golden bright amber with nice off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit (mango, pineapple, papaya, guava) and grapefruit with maybe a hint of malt. Taste of grapefruit, pine, caramel, tangerine and tropical fruit. Full body and medium/high carbonation well a nice, rich mouthfeel. Good.

BluePhish (93) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle procured from Beer Temple Chicago. Very pretty golden colored pour with very little head(prob thanks to slow pour to avoid sediment). Very hazy as expected. Aroma is a nice mix of piney and fruity with tropical notes floating atop resin undertones. Taste is mellower than I would have guessed on the front but quickly brings the hopocalypse as expected. Mid palate also exhibits the fruity character and then shuffles off to a wonderfully long and luxurious finish. Palate is a tad flat for me, and I definitely feel the 10% abv. Overall delicious and memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber at Jerry’s. Murky orange-gold with foamy white head, minimal legs / Bright, earthy nose of cut pine, weed, and citrus / Medium to full body, chewy and sweet, big fruit paired with biting hops, with appropriate bitter finish / Earthy flavors of cut pine, orange peel, caramel, grapefruit, candied sugar, bubblegum, and weed / Another fine initial effort from PW.

Bomber bottle and served in my 1st Pipeworks snifter: This is dank, hell it is more dank than Blood of the Unicorn but that had some attempt to soften the crushing blows. I am simply not a fan of this hop in such quantities or the other new uber aggressive high alpha hops that simply dominate beers. Not really much more I need to say.

Bomber thanks to Lemonhead. Pours a clear yellow color with a large white head. A massive nose of fruit, citrus some grass. Excellent flavor of rich citrus, dry, long lingering bitterness, huge resin at times. Very clean and well done. Soft palate. Very mellow but flavorful. Excellent.

tdoyledesign (173) - Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours a golden/carmel with nice head and lots of lacing. Aroma is superb. Taste is rather sweet for an IPA almost reminiscent of a Dogfish Head 90 minute. Palate is sweet and hoppy with perhaps a hint of caramel or toffee. Excellent and rare find!

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Galaxy isn’t my fav hop variety but they got all they could out of it in this one, I havent had a galaxy ipa with as intense of a flavor. Huge aroma, just huge. Flavor has a high slighly herbal bitterness and layers of citrus rind and tropical hop goodness. Note to Pipeworks: had another bottle of this and citra ninja in the past 2 days and there is a butterscotch element to both. Not sure why.
