355 ml bottle.UncleKorm (1337) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Pours a beautiful golden colour with a white strong lacy head. Aroma of strong citrusy hops, mellow caramel and biscuit. Flavour of strong bitter hops, grapefruit, floral notes and exotic fruitiness. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, dry, grapefruity bitter finish. Awesome balance. More please.
Bomber bottle poured a slightly hazy golden orange hue w/ a big white frothy head mostly lasting and good lacing. Very aromatic grapefruit and lemon. Initial taste is a light bitter with a hint of sweet in the middle and then a heavy bitter finish of long duration. Medium body, slightly oily texture. For me the bitterness level starts to overshadow the flavor of the beer, but this is still a very good west coast style IPA. thicksuds (451) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Nice IPA, well hopped, strong flavors, good malt flavor as well, piney, sticky quality, very bitter and dry, everything you would expect from a top ipa, i put this near the top of its class, just below the best. Very drinkable. umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Pours a clear golden orange color with a pretty big white, foamy head that lingers nicely. Aroma is very citrusy with a touch of malt. Mostly grapefruit, lemons, and oranges. Taste is lightly fruity and citrusy to start and then turns moderately bitter. Nice malt backbone. Finish is a tad soapy and a bit rough. Medium body, some hop resin adds a slightly oily feel. This beer does not live up to the reputation for me. It’s a good IPA but I’ve had many better and more complex. omega (899) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 8, 2012
A nice big robust IPA that is quite dry on the palate. Poured a little frothy but this blew off quickly.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 12/14/14: Bomber. Grapefruit citrus hop aroma with light grass and pine notes. Pours clear golden colored with a large soapy white head and very little lacing. Starts with smooth grapefruit and orange citrus with hints of tropical fruit. Finishes dry with light grass and pine hop bitterness, but still quite smooth. Nice IPA.
10/8/12: Strong hoppy aroma. Amber colored with not much head. Smooth with citrus notes to start before the hops take over. Hoppy to finish, but not overpowering. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2012
12oz bottle, thanks to my parents. Mildly hazy orange / gold color, with a very nice mostly white head, leaving good, thick lace. Very nice piney, orange aroma, light caramel malt. Kind of resiny. clight sweetness, medium bitterness. Good, smooth lighter carbonation, with a dry finish, medium body. A lot of hype behind this brewery. Their IPA is definitely above average, in my opinion - meets the hyped-up expectation. Very enjoyable. timc100 (320) - Park Ridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2012
This right here is a real solid, well balanced, delectable IPA. It feels IPA-tastic - medium/bodied and slightly chewy. The nose is of both ripe grapefruit sweetness and bitterness, pretty malty, pine/spruce. Very bitter, yummy. Atheist_Peace (1042) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2012
22oz. bomber. Bright amber pour with an average-ish sort of head that disappears kind of quickly and leaves just a ring of lace. Fairly resinous on the nose with some deep citrus character. Some unrefined grain as well. Very resinous on the palate as well. The unrefined grain aspect isn’t present at all. More citrus takes its place. Solid bitterness in the finish.

Very hoppy but gets easier to drink as you go. Grapefruit citrus and hops. An extremely good beer.
