4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours clear golden, half finger thick off white head. Aroma tropical, pine, floral hops, sweet caramel, bready malt. Taste dank citrus, tropical, pine, floral hops, not overly bitter, bready, caramel malt in the background, bit of onion/garlic spice, no alcohol presence. Mouth feel is fuller medium, low carbonation, resinous hop astringency, classic Stone dry finish. Overall excellent, hop is definitely the star here, fantastically crafted beer, enjoyed 14 days after bottled on date!

$10.49 8/23/13. May have been coerced into smelling oniony because that's what earlier reviewers said but upon opening it, that's what I smelled. I regrouped and resmelled...peach, citrusy out the ass, piney and there was a definite stinky oniony smell.
Christ that's a lot on the smell...
Taste: juicy hop and bitter citrus flavor.
I want more now!!!

9/13/13 at the source. Super clean, absolute clarity hen looking through the glass. Really smooth, nice little kick of the hops. Obviously very fresh out of the brewery. Class act.

Has a very amber color. Not much foam or head, but some lacing tacking place on glass. For a higher ABV does not come across as strong.

9-13-13 bottle. Copper/amber pour with a white head. Big aromas of citrus peel, pine, and resin. Big hop flavor on the palate all the way through. Like a hop bomb in your mouth. Bitter finish almost like burnt popcorn but in a good way. Interesting brew but it’s a beast. Not for someone just beginning to explore hoppy beers.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 Enjoy by 9-13-13 batch. Bomber into Maine Beer Company glass. Pours clear golden/copper color, nice carbonation with 2 finger head. Nose is strong citrus, lemon, grass, earthy, musty. Mouthfeel is surprisingly smooth for a 9.4% DIPA. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, citrus, pine, iced tea, bright and hoppy. Finish has a great balance of bitterness and hops, the hops come at you in waves for a few moments after each sip. Dominated by the citrusy/grapefruit characteristics. I’m drinking 13 days after bottling, the hops must explode out of this one if you get it within a few days.This is an awesome beer.
