Dorwart (2359) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Good sized light orange head of very fine and dense bubbles. Good carbonation. Juicy hops aroma with plenty of spruce and citrus. Pretty resinous. Light dustyness with some caramel malts. Color is a bright copper orange. Flavor is a little weak in the hops presence. Plenty of sweet caramel and malts to go around though. Strong alcohol presence with a hint of bitter peanut skins. Very warming from the alcohol. Some roastyness also. Finish is sweet and has a decent hops bitterness. Noticible alcohol presence at the finish. Could have used some more hops in the flavor and less alcohol. Still pretty good though.

Bottle. I smelled the hops pouring out of this before I had the cap off completely. Pours a bubbly amber/copper body with a medium biege head. Left a thin film with decent lacing. Complex hoppy, sweet candy, malty, earthy aroma. Slight burn. Piney, sweet hoppy taste. Nice smooth malty, full mouthfeel. Alcohol is very well hidden. Oily, grapefruit finish. Very drinkable, great beer.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 27, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2008 Pours clear dark bronze with a small thick light tan head. The aroma has stale musty caramel malt and some butter. Iím not getting much, if any, hops from the aroma on a IIPA - WTF? Medium / thick body with a good amount of carbonation. Starts off with musty cobweb caramel malts. The finish has some malt, but the hops finally start showing through on the woody and piney side. The stale mustiness unfortunately stays through the whole thing. An okay beer, but not nearly up to what the style should be. On a positive note it does hide the 11% very well - it tasted considerably lower than that. (5/3/6/3/12 - 2.9) <P> Rerate notes: This looks more copper than originally stated. Aroma has lots of nice hops with citrus and tropical fruits, but there is still a very strong balancing lightly toasted malt with bits of caramel. Strikes me as a cross between an IIPA and a barleywine. Body is like above, but on the slick side. This has a prominent maltiness to it with hearty earthy hops backing it up. Quality IIPA. Not my fave fo the style, but miles above where I had this originally rated. Still hides the abv well on taste, but the effect is surely there.

Bottle. Light amber with decent head. Very nice sugary/malty/hoppy aroma. This is a great example of a very balanced, yet big, IPA. Just not the hop monster I expected....but tasty nonetheless. The sugary malt is the main vehicle in this beer. Nice cotton candy sweetness with just enough hops to balance. Nice and thick...Definitely worth trying. Wait a second....11%?! No kidding....this is a sweet beer, but I would never guess more than 7 or 8%.....very masked.

probstblueribbon (2858) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Re-rated JN 27/08 as a Bomber from Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Medium-deep amber, clear, decent off-white foam. Aroma: Huge amounts of pine and grapefruit hops, peppery, some gooey caramel malt behind that. Palate: Medium+ body, soft carbonation. Flav.: Lots of pine hops but much more caramel malt than the nose would have you think, peppery and spicy, some raisins and dried fruits somew3hat sweet and fairly bitter, some alcohol and caramel on the finish as well as leftover spicy, piney hops.

Typically American and a nice hop fix.

Sampled at Real Beer Expo (Rochester). Med. amber colour and no head. Sweet, caramel nose with hops in the background. Fullish mouthfeel, slightly oily. SWEET, tons of malt, but with plenty of hops. An interesting balance. Really nice.

eaglefan538 (2851) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Orange amber to copper in color with an ok head, decent lacing, nothing spectacular for the style. The aroma was citrus hops and some fruity exter tyep malts underneath. The flavor was resinous, piney, citrus rinds, definite hop presence, followed by some fruity malty flavors underneath. Pilsner like flavors came out under all the hop stuff, light honey and sulfur. The mouthfeel was moderately bodied, not sticky, bitter.

ElDuderino (183) - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Golden Orangish Amber body with a fluffy off-white head. Tame, dry taste with a mellow hop bitterness. Very smooth on the palate and even keeled. Not much going on as far as stand out flavors. Taste fades quickly, but oh so easy to drink. Alcohol is completely masked, watch out, danger may be ahead.

nimbleprop (4543) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2006
Poured a clear orangy copper from the bomber with a very thick, white lacing head. A nice earthy, no pun intended, hoppy smell, slightly piney. Sticky, syrupy and slightly acidic in the mouth. Canít taste anything but the hops here, citrus, pine, flower, soap. The very heavy alcohol is well hidden making this beer enjoyable.

adrian910ss (2317) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2006
22 oz bomber. Pours an orange amber color with an enormous creamy beige head. Aroma is extremely hoppy with that famous west coast piney IPA scent. Taste is very hoppy with loads and loads of pine flavor and plenty of tangerine citrus as well. Alcohol is hidden very well. Hard to believe this is 11 %. Excellent !! One of the best east coast Imperial IPAíS out there.
