Bottle from the Liquor Barn in Redding CA. Wow, I was very impressed with the small micro brew. Wasn't expecting, much but they really came through with a full bodied DIPA. Nice hop character with a well balanced citrus malt on the backend. Nicely done.
Orange pour. Thick and viscous for the style. Citrus and pine dominated, with some bitterness, and sweet toffee malt undercurrent. Not too shabby. DavidWoodruff (619) - Windsor, California, USA - APR 18, 2017
Hazy orange with a quickly dying white head. Huge (yuge) malty/piney aroma. Big malt/hop school of aroma. Malty/hoppy confluence of taste perceptions. Love the malt forward balance with the hoppy, funky undercurrent. Yes, I got my groove on and I am ready to party with the funkadelick hop machine!!!! raphael (1254) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Loved their regular IPA so had my hopes up, & had been a bargain at the brewpub--$6 for a bomber. Maybe the alcohol clashed with the hops, the malt presence was low and the beer thin on the pallet. this beer mumbles, the flavor murky., davidm (2080) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Great beer with a hop kick. Very long flavour, with pine and citrus. Balanced.

On tap at Final Gravity. Pours dark golden with a bery thick beige head and a citrus and toffee aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor with a nicely bitter finish. Well-made.

Bomber from Final Gravity. Pours orange gold with a slight white head. The aroma is incredibly hoppy, but there’s so much I can’t parse it. Like induced nasal paralysis. It just makes me think of honey - which it clearly isn’t. Maybe there’s some vanilla. Full bodied or nearly. Hop forward. Flavor is spicy, citrus, stone fruit, grass. Or more. There’s a burn which I think is hop rather than alcohol. It’s not completely dry, but the hop really is in control here. It’s not really harsh either. After awhile my tongue is suggesting resin/pine as a part of the mix. I’m impressed. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Light sweet caramel and citrus aroma. Sweet caramel and citrus flavor. Medium bodied. Decent bitterness. Sweet caramel and citrus lingers with light earth. mpersinger (365) - , California, USA - APR 4, 2015
Blind judging at Battle of the Brews, Sonoma County (poured from bottle, then portable draft system): Orange zest and c-hop pine nose; auburn color, moderate clarity (may be unfiltered, and/or dry hop residuals), one finger beige plush head; medium body and plush mouthfeel supported by moderate carbonation and slight drying finish; somewhat bready malt & dominating orange marmalade, with pine and resin hop flavors, a bit sweet, not cloying- masking some of that huge alcohol. Cleanly fermented. Intriguing & distinct double Ipa that had me back to brewery’s booth a few times. gunnfryd (14872) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2015
