Bomber to pint glass. Large amount of citrus and moderate pine aroma. Clear golden-copper with off-white head. Flavor is balance of overt pine and citrus. Moderate high bitterness. Malt holds up well here as well.

"Drake’s was 3 for 3 on the day. Hopacalypse was orange and grapefruity sweetness and bitterness rolled into one nice package. an easy drinking feel, and another winner. had it FRESH in a bottle with a couple other DIPAs...clear winner. love the citra hops and rye malt mixed in there. up a tenth to a 4.3."

Draught @ Hopwater Distribution, San Francisco, California

Pours dark orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramely malts, hops, citrus, grass and toffee. Taste is sweet, caramely malty and hoppy with some some sweet citrusy notes. Finish is sticky sweet, and a bit stuffy with some grass and citrus. Okay, a bit too sweet and malty for my taste.

BrewHaMeister (456) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bomber pours a hazy amber with an off- white head and nice lacing. Aromas of citrus, spruce, grapefruit, and bread. Flavor is mild to medium bitter with a slightly (maybe it’s the pizza I’m washing down) buttery finish. Nice IPA^2

Bottle. The look is decent off white head, peach skin colored. The smell is great, fruit, peachy, mango, really nice hop aromas. The taste is hoppy, fruits, nice bite but not harsh. Well brewed.

Pours a hazy orange with an off-white head and lacing. It has a great aroma of pine and some citrus with a flavor that's resin and citrus with a strong malt backbone and bittersweet, syrupy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Nice hazy orange gold with thick lasting head. Very light hoppy smells. A grainy hoppyness The bitter hits a little dirty. Fades nice but the after taste is left a little clumsy bitter.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 22oz bomber . The beer pours to a medium golden color with a thick white head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit, & some floral notes. The taste was very smooth with a nice hop kick but not too bitter. Flavor was very good but seemed slightly subdued to me for a DIPA. Overall a very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
