Rich caramel malt sweetness is beaten over the head with bright, fresh American hop flavors of grapefruit citrus, pine and tropical fruit in our Double IPA. This beer is the bigger, more successful brother of Kidnapped by Vikings.

Bomber served in a tulip glass. I know the abv is listed at 7.7 but my bottle says 8.0. Interesting, maybe it changed. Anyway, on to it. The beer pours a fairly clear burnt amber orange with a thin white head that leaves little lacing. Aroma is dank pine, caramel, bread, and some tropical fruits. Taste is pine resin right up front. There are also citrus and tropical fruit flavors, as well as caramel. It lingers on your palate a bit and the alcohol is well hidden. Not a bad beer, just kind of underwhelming.

AirForceHops (3771) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 7, 2014
650 ml bottle, purchased at Binny’s Lincoln Park. Mostly clear Amber color with fizzy head. Aroma is light citrus, with abundant amount of pine needles and resin

Flavor is light mango and peach upfront, caramel sweetness through the center with a big strong lingering pine in the finish. Brewers decrepit io in the label is exactly what is delivered here.

ccex (995) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2014
22 ox bottle pours a clear orange amber with small soapy off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is all citrus, but not strong. Taste is only slightly bitter with lots of caramel sweetness in the middle before a mildly bitter, almost dank finish. Body is medium with very little carbonation and a soapy mouthfeel. This Swedish-American wanted to be ravaged by this one, but I found it underwhelming, not imperial, and not much better than the average IPA

Tap at Bavarian Lodge. Clear very rich reddish orange pour with a soapy head. Good looking beer. Syrupy resin aroma with a hint of citrus. Slightly bitter on the finish. Good.

deyholla (7266) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a near clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bit of pine and resin with a good amount of sweet grains and a hint of caramel. Flavor is similar with resin up front and sweet grains backing as well as a touch of light fruit.

Red-orange, two-finger head. Smell is tropical fruit, candied apple, pine. Strong biscuity flavor that’s quickly overtaken by tangy citrus and pine resin. Dry, bitter finish. Very drinkable.
