Tastes more like an IPA not a double. Great flavor but overall it doesn't knock my socks off. ABV is high. Overall good beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Large bubbled, head that falls flat quickly. No lace to speak of. Clear, light, amber hued brew. Light nose of citrus and fruit with a hint of pale malts. Body is medium, no carbonation, little oily, lifeless.Mildly sweet malts with a little orchardly fruitiness and light piny, leafy notes . Dry finish with a tame bite.Bomber received in trade from fiveacestx. Thanks Cam ! Bottle had leaked out about an inch and a half or so of its contents. After further examination it appears the cap was not seated completely. Oh well, poop happens. Shame too as it would of been nicer beer with some carbonation.

Pours a redish amber with a fluffy off-white head. Fairly thin and not nearly as bitter as I expected. Some alcohol at the front before going floral and piney, with a bit too much sweetness in the finish.

Glass: 12-oz. plastic cup
From: Hoppy Monk in El Paso, Texas
Purchased: Sept. 27, 2013
Consumed: Sept. 27, 2013
Misc.: In a very dark place during Oktoberfest
Poured what appeared to be a dark caramel amber color with two fingers of khaki white head. Tons of even layered lacing on the sides of the cup. Good retention all the way down.
Smelled a potent mix of wonderfully smelling hops. Got floral, citrus, grapefruit, peach and a touch of resin.
Tasted more earthier than the smell, but still fresh. Bitter grapefruit, floral heavy and citrus notes.
Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish.
This was just a fantastic beer. I would love to try it again.
