Bomber courtesy of hamilton23. Cheers, Steve! Pours a hazy amber-brown color with an off-white head. Nose is an explosion of malt with an explosion of hops, even after it’s a few months old in the bottle. This one smacks of pine with big grapefruit and some grass. Flavor is similar with a strong like bull backbone behind this tender giant of a hop explosion featuring grapefruit, pine, and all manner of citrus. Really enjoyable, medium to full-bodied DIPA with lingering abrasive hops. TimE (5827) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 17, 2012
golden amber color. Apricot, brandy, biscuit notes in the nose. A touch of malty sweetness. Full body. Big malty backbone, full on hoppiness. Big everywhere, but not as dry as I like. Can’t say I am blown away thicksuds (449) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 15, 2012
definitely a well hopped, bitter, dry, dipa, with a bit of fruityness and floral hops. Torches the tastebuds, all hops. Great brew, definitely strong, abv mildly detectable, one 22 of this and you will be feeling it. Thisis12ptfont (1195) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Faint wet hops on the aroma. Clear copper in color. Assertive bitter hop overtones with a creamy oat/barley malt behind it. Well carbonated with some herbs floating about. Overall, this is a decent IPA. Slightly bitter hops with a small malt. Nothing special. B- rating. tiong (7306) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2012

Pours yellowish orange with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of exotic fruity hops, sweet caramely malts and lemon. Taste is malty, sweetish and extremely fruity with some exotic hops, caramel and lemon. Finish is sweetish and hoppy with some fruity and malty notes. Nice, quite tasty, but slightly too sweet for my taste.
Like a stronger sculpin...a little bigger and a little sweeter, but still very light for the style, very piney and very refreshing. Lots of citrus, some pine and a quick clean finish. Very good DIPA. mikem409 (2027) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle thanks ramy. Pours deep orange with white head. Fruit aroma big citrus rind taste lots sweet sugar hop jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with a small white head. Huge hop aroma of citrus, pine and light tropical fruits along with a hint of caramel sweetness. Awesome hop flavor of citrus and pine with a balancing but unobtrusive sweet caramel backbone. Bitter hop finish of florals and citrus. Awesome beer.

Bottle. Real nice blend of pine, citrus, summer fruits and hops, with a nice boozey finish. RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle poured a clear light amber with golden hues, medium off-white head that dissapated quickly, and excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, resin, floral notes, caramel malt, and citrus peel. Taste is tangerine and grapefruit upfront followed by a wave of palatable bitterness. Nice sticky mouthfeel, smooth finish, flavors lingering long after each sip.
