Poured from a 22oz bottle, not sure of the bottle date. Poured amber with a slight reddish head, great color and head retention. Aroma wasn’t prevalent, but I have a harder time with that and I’m a little stuffed up, I did get a lot of booze/alcohol in pouring and on the nose. Not as much hop as I would have liked and definitely sweet. Defiantly left a hot taste in my mouth after the sweet subsided. A lot of caramel, a little hot but overall a good beer. I’m not a big fan of imperials but I did enjoy this beer Homer321 (5250) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2014

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 Bomber poured into shaker pint. Orange amber body with two finger plus head that lasts. Lots of sticky lacing is left on the glass. Aroma is of orange peel, pine resin, sweet malts, and citrus juice. Taste is bitter citrus peel and pine balanced with sweet candied grapefruit and a caramel malt ribbon. Medium-full body, sticky, resinous texture, moderate carbonation, bitter finish. _angst_ (5009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2014

Draft pour at American ales in Santa Barbara. Orange with fluffy white head. Cotton candy and cherry jolly rancher taste. Candy. Huge beer but delicious. Smells like a pine tree met a grapefruit. Had this brewers pale ale earlier and hated it. This totally redeemed them chargerfanjess (129) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2014

Bottle @ The WWGT2D? Tasting. Thanks, GRG! The pour’s really deep cherry amber with a tight white head. Pretty sweet, ballsy nose. Melon and strawberry. Fruit by the foot. Grass and tropical undergrowth. The taste is hugely sweet. Ribbon candy, caramel. Red berries. Quite sugary and bitter on the finish. Full body, big. Overall, outsized in every way.

On tap at Beercraft. Pours an amber color without much head. Broad hop flavors with a hint of citrus. Mild overall.

On tap @ Beercraft (rp). Appearance was different than most DIPA’s, Dark Amber color. Taste was fruity/citrusy with a bitter finish. Could definitely throw a few of these back. Really smooth.
