This is an interesting beer for a 2x IPA. Herbal aroma and brownish yellow appearance. The taste is really where this one differentiates. Hard to pin down the flavor--nutty, carmel, chocolate undertones. Odd for an IPA, but it blends well with the bitter aspects.

jandd1983 (2505) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Sampled at ESBLS. It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of tropical fruit, some pine and a little earthiness. The taste was of pine, guava, pineapple, orange, hoppy bitterness and a mild lingering bitter finish. Nice.

ICEatALAMO (913) - Troy, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle. The pour is a deep dark orange. The aroma is all hops. The taste is also full of hops, a little bitter throughout. Big beer for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AWISLguy (1193) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bomber from La Primera. Pours a hazy orangish amber with an orange head leaving some lace. Aroma has pine, citrus and caramel. More caramel down through the glass. Taste is of grapefruit and sweet caramel, with some tangy spicy pine and some resin. Medium bodied and lowly carbonated. Finishes to the sweet side of bittersweet with some alcohol. Perhaps this sat around a bit but this was much more caramelly than hoppy.

Tmoney99 (10468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter hop flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.
