COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This complex double India pale ale has an intense citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, “not normal.” Cheers! 100 IBU 11.0%ABV (used to be 9.5%)

Bomber shared by customercopy. Thanks JB. Pours an orange-amber with a thin off-white head. The nose is of sweet malt, big citrus and some mild lacto tartness. Slick, medium-bodied and bitter with some tart funk at the finish. This tastes like a lightly oaked (odd) version of the nose. It’s an interesting IIPA, but I found it a tad odd. I’d prefer Dreadnaught any day of the week.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Bomber courtesy dchmela. Pours a clear, fiery, golden-orange hue with a minimal, swirly film for a head. Sugary legging coats the glass, leaving behind wet lace spots. The aroma is weird, showing toffee malts, butterscotch, and evaporated milk, mostly sweet, though hopped with notes of bitter orange and resinous pine. Flavors follow suit, toffee driven and buttery up front, with citrus and pine bitterness on the back end. The big, sugary body is smooth but somewhat alcoholic, finishing with a creamy, lactic sort of feel. Strange brew. Not bad, just strange.

dchmela (3005) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Bottle from Ditmeir. Pours a hazy orange wheat color with a thick head. Huge citrus hop aroma, lots of floral notes. Big malt citrus hop taste with a touch of creamy lacto to smooth thing out. Interesting idea to use lacto to balance out the hops.

Thanks to dchmela for the taste. Odd hoppy brew. Clean citrus and vanilla. Slightly bitter. Creamy. Pretty good brew.

22 oz bottle. Hoppy nose, piney, creamy sweetness as well, with some citrus notes in the aroma. Pours golden blonde with a thin white head. Very hoppy, citrusy with pine resin, with a creamy thick mouthfeel, honey malts with hints of caramel and biscuits, very smooth.

Pours orange, hazy. Nose is WOW! Peaches, apricot, apple, oranges, citrus, sticky pine, sweet toffee and caramel, bubblegum and honey. HUGE mouth feel! Lactose is amazing in IIPA. Flavor is super sweet, boozey, fruit, dank hoppy greatness! Amazing!

Nate (4115) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Sampled at the ’09 RBPTE, courtesy of Beerman6686. Nice peach and pineapple hoppy aroma, heavy grass and citrus wiht some average malty character and some toffee. Dark amber cloudy body with spare off-white head. Medium thick body with medium carbonation. Huge hop aroma carries through into the taste, with lots of bitter character and some heavy sweetness to counteract. This is a tasty one.

BPW #8 Sampled from a 22oz bottle courtesy of Andy. Appearance is a hazy brown toned orange with a medium off-white head. Nose and flavors are spiked with honey and mellow stone fruits, mainly peach and some apricots. The lactose doesn’t come through as much as I was expecting but you do get a bit of a milk creaminess in the dry mouth. A nice variant on an IPA.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a hazy typically carbonated orange colored body. The aroma was hoppy and caramel malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish caramel hop aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of hops and delightful caramel. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2009 Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #6 of 90. Picked up a few bottles at Wise Guys in Merrillville. Pours hazy bright orange. Nose is mostly fresh citrus hops. The taste has a load of dry hops and a tiny sweet lactose component that melds perfectly. Juicy and yummy. Real good.
