Bottle. Brownish amber body and a medium sized off-white head. Aroma has some candied orange that gives way to lots of grapefruit, citrus, pine and some caramel and bready notes in the background. Taste fairly balanced with lots of sweetness and bitterness. Flavors of piney hops, tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit, some pithy bitterness, caramel sweetness, malt and some spice. Nicely carbonated and finishes fairly bitter. Mouthfeel is medium and despite the sweetness, wasnt cloying with the alcohol and bitterness drying things out. Excellent.

Double IPA. Copper Color, not much head. lots of maltiness and hoppy throughout. Relatively high gravity that i seem to notice while drinking it.

bomber thanks to daSilky1. Pours amber with a tan head. Nose is of overripe fruit. Taste is malty and bready. Not what I like in a double IPA. Mouthfeel is medium and bitter with lots of carbonation.

Bomber from City Beer, SF. Enjoyed during the JCB family reunion in SF. Rock on! Before pouring and drinking this bad boy, I was unaware that it was so intentionally a malt-forward example of a West Coast DIPA. So I was a bit perplexed that a beer I knew had just been released gave off such a sweet bready aroma. Then my slow brain caught on and I began to dig what the beer was about. The deep lustrous orange and creamy head look the part, and there are certainly some bitter notes detectable in the nose. But when you get into the sippage, the creamy mouthfeel complements the malts extremely well, and there are some lovely citrus and pine notes that come in to give shape to the beer rather than simply emerging as an afterthought. Nicely distinctive and superbly balanced.

Tasted at DDOS tasting. Light brown pour. Spicy rye and citrus aroma. Taste is thick resiny citrus hop and a nice rye spice balance. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2011 Bottle shared by Eric, what a good beer. Pours a cloudy copper color with a small white head. The aroma sets up this brew; awesome sweet citrus and strong malty notes. The flavor is just awesome; sweet citrus, light bitterness, loads of sweet dry malts balancing it out. Very smooth and very drinkable. A lot of sweet caramel malts along with the citrus. Very damn good. Re-rate: bottle thanks to Silky. Copper hue, very smooth, some caramel and rich bitter citrus, very smooth, lingering bitterness. Awesome.

Good DIPA. Drakes seems to be able to make IPAs in all sorts of different ways. This one probably wouldnt be my pick for a new bottled beer from them, but its still a solid, enjoyable beer. This beer pours a transparent, medium amber with a foamy off-white head. The aroma is pine needles, pineapples, tangerines, candied lemon peel and papaya. Its a big mess of hop notes. Theres also an apparent caramel malt backbone lurking underneath. The flavor has some acetone and is rather sweet for a West Coast DIPA, but its an enjoyable version of this type of DIPA. Theres a ton of bitter pine resin in the flavor, particularly the finish. The caramel malt is more apparent on the tongue, but theres also some booziness in there. The mouthfeel is a tad harsh and boozy but nothing too bad. Carbonation is light. Despite the malt sweetness, the bitter finish is really doing a number on my palate. Id reserve this one for the end of the night.
