Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Pours a hazy bright orange color with a light carbonation. Aroma is heavy aged hops, tree leaves and grass clippings. Sweet fruit nose. Flavor is sweet malts with a sappy hop flavor. This is very heavy on the hops with some sweet fruit. Tingles on the finish. Wow nice. Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Sample from a bottle at Jackie O’s as part of Ohio Brew Week. The beer is a slightly hazy copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops, malt and citrus. Medium body with flavors of hops, pine, caramel malt and a touch of fruit. The finish is hoppy up front with a sweet malty flavor left behind. Above average overall. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2011

Bottle from Star Grocery, Berkeley. Pours murky orange with a decent beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a funky slightly sour caramel malt flavor with a dry bitter finish. There is very little sweetness, as in many DIPAs. A bit too caustic for me. mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JUL 5, 2011
I would say skip it. It’s just not impressive at all. Mango pineapple nose. After that pretty boring for a double. Kinda falls flat. Color is good. Head is not there. You know how a double is supposed too smack you in the face or punch you in the stomach. This is like a second or third run of Mongo IPA.

Bomber poured into my Stone IPA glass- aroma is pleasing of pungent yeast and aromatic hops. Cloudy and murky dank dark orange; Taste is off balance, not quite sour but in that direction; really tangy in a not good way. The finish left me puckering for water. Not terrible but very disappointing for me personally. TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2011

Murky copper pour with a small eggshell head that left a spot or two of lacing. Aroma of orange peel and pine accompanied with loads of caramel. Lots of sweetness with the citrus. Candied, almost...like a sugary candied orange wedge. Medium mouthfeel. Good not great. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2011
22oz Bomber – Gravity Beer Market - Olympia, WA
Dark Amber in color, slight haze with a thin head. Big hops aroma with fruit and floral aroma and flavors. Nice malt makes for a tasty brew. This was a great Double IPA.
