Aroma is all hops, resinous and dank with a slight sweetness. Very little malt in the flavour, too. Massive, tongue coating hopping masks virtually all malt. The bitterness isnít as prominent as expected initially, after a few sips it takes over your taste buds.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is one of my favorite beers, and quite easily my favorite IPA. It has a huge hop smell with notes of sweet, fresh tropical fruits. The taste is tropical fruit up front, followed by the bracingly bitter hops that linger and coat your tongue. The amount of balance to this beer is fantastic. I would highly recommend it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - best by date 12/23/14. Aroma of candied hop flowers - lemondrops, brigh spruce. Flavor is full, nutty - some cereal notes - but from seconds in the resiny, citrus-pine hops inundate. Finishes with a fresh pine, almost minty bitterness. I still feel that candied hop goodness is the best description I can give.

Lightly hazed with an apricot-gold color. Great, thick lacing. Super smooth and creamy with a medium body and a snappy finish. Biscuity malts, grapefruit, spearmint, lots of pine quality and some floral notes as well.

12oz bottle to glass. Pours copper, hazy, lacy thin head. Aroma: citrus, pine, honey, thin sweetness. Taste: citrus, grapefruit, pine, a bit of resin. Solid malt backbone levels this out and adds a bit of honey sweetness. Solidly bitter. Floral. Mmm. Palate is medium body, high carbonation. Very good beer!

Bomber poured opaque orange amber with little head that dissipated quickly. Grapefruit citrus hoppiness aroma. This beer is packed with a massive citrus hop blast which grows and settles over time on the palate, not much maltiness noticeable. Itís as you would expect a 100 IBU beer to drink.
