COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ready to take it to the next level? This DIPA is fueled by hop flavor and aroma with enough bitterness to back the big malt body. Enjoy responsibly, this one’s aptly named.

deep amber color - almost brown; piney hop and caramel malt aroma; lots of piney hops on a medium-bodied malt base

7/6/14. Bomber. Pours a dark copper with minimal hard and lacing. Agree w jrob that it tastes more like a barleywine. Very sweet and malty for a DIPA. Gives some of the the mouthfeel that high ABV gives but the hop forward I like in a DIPA is lost. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Bestway. Bordering on barleywine. Syrupy sweet with a caramel and candi sugar malt profile. Toffee flavors as well. Herbal tea aromas. Finish is sweet caramel. Need more hops please.

firemarshal (146) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bomber from 201. Deep amber, slightly hazy. Aroma is mostly caramel malt with floral hops, pomegranate, clove in there as well. Flavor is overly malty for this style and no hops stand out. Smooth alcohol warming and medium bodied. Overall this brew missed the mark as an Imperial for me.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 On tap at Alexander Michael’s. Pours a copper color with white head. Piney, hoppy, grassy aromas. Strong hoppy, resiny flavors. Meh, doesn’t do it for me.

On tap at BottleMixx. Pours a clear amber. Mild aroma. Crisp mild taste. Could have a few of these in one sitting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear dark orange with small light brown foam head. Aroma is very hoppy and real bitter taste. Lasting aftertaste. (Houston 201310)

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bomber from Appalachian Vintner shared at the Baltimore Late Late Summer Gathering, 9/14/13. Pours a very dark bronze color with a thin frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of earthy, dank, resin hops, raw grain, caramel. The taste is bitter resin, pine, herbal hops. Caramel malts with a bit of toastiness. Medium bodied, strong lingering bitterness, fairly raw and green but a solid DIPA.

OldGrowth (2619) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2013
bottle, from Beer Study, Chapel Hill. ok aroma, sweet, hints of peach/apricot. more of resin/pine thing, beginnings of oxidization. Tad hazed, brownish orange color, ok head and lace. Sweet flavor. thick body, creamy oily mouthfeel, bitter finish. eh, don’t know if it’s what they were going for or this bottle was heading south. aroma, seemed malty for a IIPA. really does nothing to make me want a nother bottle, though I’d try it on draft sometime.
