Bottle. Pours a golden orange with a slightly frothy head. Nose is tones of malt and some slight citrus and a mild pine finish. Taste is pretty much the same as the nose. Nothing I’d like to get again unless I can verify the freshness. PLEASE date your DIPA!

Pours a clear orange color with a very small white head and decent carbonation. Aroma is hops and not much else. The taste is nice and hoppy with a decent malt backbone but it’s not very sweet, pretty well balanced. Overall a nice IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great name for a beer that fully illustrates the flavor. This does taste like sauce made out of hops. And, again, with the $3.99 price on the bomber. I was sad to see my shop was out of this when I recently went there. I should have bought some to stock up. And by stock up, I mean drink all of them in one night because my "Off switch" would be passing out on my couch after a bunch of 8.1% bombers.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
An excellent specimen with a rich golden color and a standing head. Standard aromatics, full nectar weight with a softness on the tongue and good carbonation. This brew is well balanced and sips nicely. A classic brew.
