Bottle. Colour...heavily hazy, pale straw with a thick white head. Nose...sweet spice, jasmine tea, crushed peach and vanilla. Palate...thick, plush, bright and lively with snippy bits of macerated quince, Meyer lemon and donut peach. The palate is dry and lightly sweet with sappy peach pit and gooseberry. The finish is long and fresh.

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Keg at City Beer - SF. With the RBWG 2016 A Team. Pours hazy gold with a creamy, white head. Nice dank hop character in the nose, wheat bread, tangerine. Medium sweet flavour, with nice and juicy citrus, rindy bitterness, light minerality, hints of pine. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish, moderately dry, with more fresh and juicy citrus notes. Very good beer.

Very hazy gold beer, good cream colour head. Palate is light, mildly dry and has good fine minerally carbonation. Soft malts, a light creamy sweetness. Smooth and slightly sweet floral mid. Smooth pine hops. Modest orange citrus and light hop spice. Smooth finish brings a trace of brett. Pretty smooth but it lacks something.

Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 29, 2016
22oz bomber pours with a clear pure gold body that supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up inviting garlic and onion spicy dankness with faint citrus and bits of malts and biscuit malts in the background. The taste delivers smooth big spicy bitter onion and garlic dank hoppiness. The spicy dankness is just so good here with thin shards of citrus noticed from time to time. The mild hoppy base is noticed with a faint biscuit like sensation. This delivers where I’m needing it too. Love the spicy dankness. Wow!!

bhensonb (15758) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma of mixed fruits, with a note that suggests pineapple. Med + body. Flavor is heavy, arguably somewhat dankish hops over arguably detectable malt. Hop is heavy on flavor - pale stone fruits/white berries/tropical - meaning pineapple here it seems. Mild hop burn. Surprisingly not all that harshly bitter. Great hoppy beer.

Really good though at first I didn’t know I was a double IPA. IT’S VERY SMOOTH WITH a residual bitterness. very drinkable.

Bottle at Craft Reno courtesy of Sledutah, thanks! Clear golden yellow color, white edge head. Aroma of bready and peppery lemon. Taste is bitter lemony straw. Nice.

Aroma is dank and aromatic hops, citrus and berry/ coriander. Flavor doesn’t pop as much as other Hopocalypses do, so it’s my "least" favorite, but still a great beer.
