notalush (5360) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Bomber - turbid gold with a thick,lasting head - nose is all earthy, resinous hops, lots of pine, a little bit of sweet orange and mango underneath - soft carbonation, almost cask-like in the mouth - a bit of sweetness bookends things, but this is mostly a semi-dry and aggressively bitter showcase of hops - peppery, piney, dank - moderately acidic - not at all abrasive, despite the high bitterness - pretty good.

RSRIZZO (1899) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2011
22oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 45°. Color is a hazy golden orange. with very good carbonation and tall frothy head. Aroma of hops and pine. Medium body with a sharp mouth feel. Flavor comes in with orange zest on a mild sweet malt taste then bold resiny hops and a strong bitterness. After taste is bitter with a long lingering citrus. Overall the citrus stands too much and in the end dominates the flavor. Not one of the better imperial IPA’s I’ve had and not as good as most of the other Port brews I’ve tried.

Bottle. Came out really bubbly but then settled down with beautiful, pillowy head and lasting quarter finger ring with nice lacing. Carefully poured, still cloudy with suspended sediment. Powerful grapefruit aroma with orange. A lot of mango in the flavor. Slightly muted flavor, not crystal clear, somewhat weak finish. Still, I’m comparing it to other excellent DIPAs, not your average beer. It’s very good. I’d buy it again although I’d buy Hop 15 first.

pineypower (2736) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Tap at Capone’s. Pours out a nice, moderate orange/amber color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is of tangerine, grapefruit, and a slight hint of malt sweetness. Taste is complex, lots of straight forward hop flavors, citrus fruits, grapefruit, tangerine, resiny hops and a slight malt background hiding beneath the hops. Very tasty.

cmonster (998) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2011
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.

dyetube (1331) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2011
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 (1979) - Alexandria, Virginia, 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.

thebeertourist (5102) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2011
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 (7546) - 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.
