bhensonb (13980) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Bomber from the Portland CostCo in Happy Valley. Pours golden copper with a beige head. Aroma is floral and fruit - maybe even some tropicals. Med + body or better. It is very hoppy. The malt is roasty and the hop is fruit, and definitely includes tropicals. I might call dank, if the malt wasn’t so pervasive. It’s a hoppy monster, and quite bitter, but not in a biting way. A little hopburn tho. Impressive amount of ingredients.

luttonm (4523) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Bottle in Seattle. Rosy mahogany orange, creamy off-white head. Aroma of bitter, resiny hops. Slightly unfiltered appearance but it feels much chalkier and rough on the palate. Tons of resin, deep juice and rounding fruit acid and bitterness. Julie says pineapple on my breath, I can’t argue. Doesn’t work well for me, a bit too cloying and rough. Alc is well balanced and it isn’t unpleasant.

tightslice (890) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is caramel, pine candy, some dirty earthiness. Taste is caramel and earthy hops. Reminded me more of an Amber Ale and less of an IIPA.

Reid (2300) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2016
22 oz bottle bought from a local convenience store. $2.99 Hazy darker golden body with a lovely creamy and thick eggshell white head. Aromas are of fruity, floral hops. papaya, mango, sweet cherry and flowers. Taste is similar to the aroma..but less sweet, balanced by a chunky caramel malts and a drying alcohol presence , which helps the tsste this time and does not detract. Nice medium mouth feel which gets sweet near the end but is not cloying. Very nice IIPA from Pyramid of all people. Drinkable despite the high alc volume.

Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2015
Redelijk zware IPA. Traag en rustig drinken is de boodschap. De zwaarste IPA ooit gedronken.

stevoj (3842) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle from Safeway-Yakima. Starts off with a somewhat normal pour, murky amber and small airy head. Aroma also seem normal IPA, but fuller flavor flows, with gentle alcohol warmth. Hops kick in late, and linger long after the finish. Mild for an IIPA, but very accessible.

douglas88 (8324) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Bomber. Pours a clear dark copper color with a small white head. A big sweet resiny citrus hop nose. Rich, oranges, resin, big bitterness, orange peel. The malty background is big making this more like a super hoppy barley wine. Very good.

BuckeyeBoy (5787) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 23, 2015
22oz bottle pours out a dark amber topped with a sand head. Nose is nice caramel sweetness citrus and pine hops. Taste is more of the caramel sweetness citrus hops pine and a nice rich malt to help hold it together.
