Bomber served in a tulip. Pours hazy dark orange with a massive orange-white head that stays and stays. Hoppy aroma includes big grapefruit, big grass, and big pine resin. Light-medium sweet flavor that eases to citrus bitterness, followed by grassiness, then finishing quite bitter and dry. Medium body, average carb, croily texture. Exceptional hop focused Double IPA. FYI, there’s a giant furry riding the huge wave on the bottle label.

Bomber Bottle from liqourama.net. Pours a cloudy copper with a medium white head. The aromas are citrus, pine, grapefruit, and bread. The mouthfeel is bitter and dry with a medium heavy body. This was a very solid beer. Nicely done. Cheers!

Nickls (1815) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Tap, Leon’s Decatur, GA. Hazy marigold orange with a nice white head and lacing. Grapefruity, lemon-zest, light cat piss, and light pine all feature in the aroma. Lush grapefruit and passion fruits in the flavor, very bitter indeed with some dank and pine flavors. Meidum body with bubbly carbonation. Good brew.

On tap at Eagle Rock Brewery. Hazy golden, big creamy head. Intense grapefruity hoppiness. Exotic fruits in the finish. A great west Coast IPA.

phaleslu (6281) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2011
22 oz. bottle shared by lushawn- thanks, Shawn! Seemed to go over well at the pre-DLD tasting in our hotel. Pours a hazy, dull orange color with a lot of sediment visible in the glass, especially for me, who got the last of it. Aroma of citrusy hops, tropical fruits, caramel malts, and sugar. The flaovr follows suit, with a nice, fresh, hoppy, fruity character. No alcohol to be found. Medium-bodied, with a fruit juciy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Dangerously easy to drink.

p1meatloaf (208) - California, USA - APR 30, 2011
22oz into tumbler. cold temp with lots of mist when cracking open the bottle. looks like hazy apricot with 1 finger white thick head. smells of strong bitter hops like all beautiful west coast DIPAs. taste: pretty smooth start with a citrusy hop flavor that ramps up the farther back it goes. lightly malted so the hops and dry hopped flavors can really overpower, but this is what i greatly enjoyed about most beers in this style such as ruination. lacing is gorgeous. other fruity and complex tastes are present. Alc is pretty well hidden at 8.5%. overall 9.5 of 10. exquisite beer. RIP Mongo.

Draft at Haymarket. Pours a lightly hazed golden orange with a very sticky lace head. Nose is popping with citrus and tropical fruits with minimal malt character and clean yeast profile. On taste, it tends to go towards a more piney hop character. Some juicy citrus also does come through. Damn fine IIPA, just a bit one dimensional. Solid.
