650 ml bottle from secret santa. Thanks santa. Pours a cloudy brass color with a small white head that soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma is pungent with sweetened citrus, floral and caramel. The flavor, like the nose, is dominated by the citrus--grapefruit, oranges, lemons and a wee bit of caramel filling in the sides. The palate is light but effective with soft carbonation. Finishes short and dry with a touch of biter resins hanging around. Overall: I find this dangerously drinkable, very well crafted DIPA.

Bomber. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange. Lots of haze little foam. Aroma is funky of peaches, sweet malts, very little hops presence. Taste is good. Lightly bitter, nice burn, showing the ABV nicely. Oddly smooth. I expect the Dreadnaught will have more of an edge. Nice stuff.

Pailhead (5633) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2011
On tap: The aroma consists of heavy citrus (oranges), peach, and grapefruit. It’s a transparent golden orange with a small soapy white head. The flavor starts with quick dose of orange and peach. The finishis heavy on the grapefruit, light orange peel, and just a hint of alcohol. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a highly drinkable IIPA.

Ebay purchase. Cloudy golden pour with an aroma of caramel, hop, vanilla, and orange peel. The taste was a bit complex, but interesting. The first thing I noticed was the citrus hop flavor. Then, it morphed into a earth vanilla tone. The finish, as I allowed it to warm, revealed to be a bit lemony and bitter. It was really good.!

bookman10 (731) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Pours a lovely golden yellow, with nice-sized, lasting head. Some citrus, some other fruit (apricot?), maybe a touch of soapiness, along with a very pronounced piney hop bite. Has a nice dry finish to it. Liked this one.

mixmasterob (970) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle from Santa. Clear light golden pour with a small white head. Big piney resiny aroma, bits of tropical fruit, big time citrus, orange peel. Flavors were strong bitter orange peel, citrus for days. Mouthfeel was smooth, carbonation was about average. Long lingering bitter finish. Left a wonderfully bittersweet, citrus on the palate long after each sip. This is very good but I don’t think it would stand out in a line-up.

fiulijn (16426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle at Papsř’s
Hazy deep blond color; small head. Strong hop aroma, citrusy and resiny, very good in their balance; turning into a manure feeling too. The body is dry enough, indeed not too cloying, the malt/toffee flavor is present, but hopeless in front of the powerful hopping, with a quite citrusy character. Extreme, and extremely enjoyable.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2012 Appearance is hazy yellow with rich 1 finger head. Aroma is heavy citrus peel, resin, and honey. Taste is palate scorching citrus hops with just enough malt to balance. Body is light-medium with lively carbonation and a very dry and bitter finish.

New lable bomber. Yellow with a small white head that didn’t stick around. Aroma is a muddle of citrusy hops, a little pine and pepper. An initial flavor revealed a quicke hit of malt, then some mixed citrus flavors. A massive bitterness follows with hop resin. A little bit of alcohol heat hits on the back of the tounge. A long lasting, dry, puckering bitterness follows. Medium body with ample carbonation. Indeed this is a palate wrecker. I was eating a brat braised in amber lager with bell peppers, onions and whole grain mustard with the panzer wolf. I assumed the brat could stand up to it but I was wrong! I would think only the most pungent, salty blue cheeses could stand up to this one.

Wonderful citrus hop aromas. Flavors of tangerine, orange peel, and just a little sweet malt. Nicely carbonated. Flavors linger on the palate. Just plain awesome!
