brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - DEC 1, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 Have had plenty of times, but have never reviewed it. Pours a hazy sunset orange color with a finger length head that goes away quickly. All their double ipas look the same, but that’s not a bad thing. Nice carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of resinous pine, fresh cut grass, apricot, little sweetness, breadiness quality to it, little orange. Very dry. Interesting smell. Taste starts with a smack in the face of abrasive bitterness. Get some apricot, orange, tons of grapefruit, pine, some grass in the front. Then the breadiness from the malts kick in in the middle and somewhat cut the bitterness. The sweetness from the dextrose sugar also comes in and somewhat balances it. Then on the back end, just loads of more abrasive bitterness, but accompanied with flavors of grapefruit, apricot, mango, pine, some grass, some floral notes as well. The sweetness lingers through the back end. The carbonation does wonders for this beer to at least try to clean the palate from the resinous hop qualities. Very dry finish. No detection of the 9% alcohol content, which has never been a problem for them. High medium body with a creamy and oily texture from the hop oils. If you are a hop head, you will love this beer. Very intense, yet complex.

daje (3338) - NORWAY - MAY 18, 2016
On tap at Mikkeller Bar, july 24th 2015. Clear amber body with a low white head. Aroma is piney with citrus peels and toffee. Taste is sweet caramel, bitter hops and a basket of tropical fruits. Strong malty finish balances it out a bit, while a piney hopkick settles in in the aftertaste. A nice one!

visionthing (4470) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2016
On tap at Monterey Bar, Prenzlauer Berg. Almost murky, hazy orange with a fairly dense, off-white head. Solid hoppy aroma with citrus, pine and notes of tropical fruits, malt and caramel. Fairly sweet, but strong bitterness and quite pleasant hoppy flavours makes it feel fairly balanced. Alcohol is well integrated and goes down easy enough in the end. Tasty, but still a bit too much on the sweet side for my taste, but certainly a decent brew.

Bomber bottle. I don’t remember the details of this beer now though, but it didn’t score too badly!

This is one of the beers that led me to snobbery, to be honest. The aroma is classic ipa. Citrus and pine. Nice orange and wheat color. Super aggressive flavor. Really punches you in the mouth. Love it.

TattooJack (442) - Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Poured from the $13- bomber, chunky orange with a white hue, about a fingers worth of white collar. Taste is all of the citrus fruits, spicy, booze, plenty bitter, juicy & gritty at the end. I’m taking the commercial deScription’s word on this being 9% it tastes and drinks stronger than that. I would be a player on this one again if it were in a 4-pack for $13-, but not a bomber. Thanks for the taste, enjoy my money.
