The Greatest American Double Beer ever put forth. Aroma very floral , Appearance , standard bronze body , Flavor is killer. Its a shame that Stone’s IPA is rated higher , it has nothing on this gem

Pow! This beer uses your nose as a punching bag; it is screaming with hops. It pours a brilliant orange color with a small lacing white head and a few small bubbles coming to the surface. Lots of citusy hops in the nose. Flavor is all sweet malt up front with a citrus/wood hop flavor after awhile. Backend bitterness is tame but present. This beer reminds me of a 3F product.

This is an excellent IPA. I love hops so I still say it could use more but I really like the fruity flavor. I drank this at the Great Water Pub and Thai Restaurant in San Fran and it was a perfect bittery match to my spicy Thai.

One of "THE" best IPA’s that i’ve had in a long time. I normally get burned out on an ipa that i like, the taste is usually hit/miss. But not this! It’s hard to come by and available only in 4 packs. If you come upon it, buy it!

Pours a clear amber, thick white head, moderate lacing. Excellent hop floral bouquet to the nose. Delicious full hop bite, for an imperial ipa - it is very smooth and full flavored. May have found a new favorite. -To IPA is to be.

Draft at the Drafting Room, Exton. As a hophead, I found this one to be extraordinary. The pour was hazy dark straw colored with a uniform 2-finger white head that looked like a blanket of new-fallen snow. Huge piney hop aroma, coupled with some floral esters and black pepper notes. The flavor was very piney hoppy with an array of floral esters arriving at mid-palate. The mouthfeel was extremely velvety, creamy, and lively. Well balanced and delicious. Based upon the low bottle ratings, I wonder if the formulation for this has changed, or whether the keg at the Drafting Room was nitrogenated? At any rate, I found it to be outstanding.

This bottle has been in the cellar for quite some time 2 years im guessing...slightly cloudy copper body with a skimming of a beige head...pungent malt aromas with grapefruit and orange...it smells wonderful...I even get a tinge of caramel in the whiff...flavor is similar to aroma with an added sweetness...grapefruit finish...its just right palate wise...speckled dotted lacing...a little watery in the near finish, but the aging may have affected it

Very good for an IPA. I had it on tap at Lucky Baldwin’s. Very fruity and hoppy at the same time. Pretty good.

Bought bomber at holiday wine cellar. When i bought the bottle it was very clear but i left it out in my car for a bit so i threw it in the freezer for 30 mins and it is now extremely hazy and cold but cleared up as it warmed! Looks like apricot. smells citrus and citrus. Tastes with an extreme bitter bite at first and second and smooths off toward the end and finishes very clean with no aftertaste. I can tell there is a malt basis but this epic beer is seriously packed with bitterness. Only complaint was that the carbonation could have been better but that might have been my fault. Overall 9 of 10.

Poured from the bomber. Aroma is citrusy hops, plus piney notes. Flax flavor is similar. Nicea and hopy. Good lacing. This is really good!
