Bomber pours a great looking pale amber color with a thin but lasting cream colored head. Nose of pine, resin, and citrus notes. Taste is bitter, but more balanced than most mind erasing DIPAs. Solid malt body provides ample structure. Citrus on the finish. A drinkable DIPA... But really should be considered just an IPA.
22 oz bottle poured. As I pour this, and enjoy the first few sips, I wonder why I haven't rated this yet, but the more I think about it, this might be the only time I've ever had the original Blue Dot. Not the freshest bottle in the world, so I'll be sure to get more notes on a fresher bottle, but this is still drinking nicely. Thicker, glowing golden orange pour. Very little head. A very bready malt constant with this imperial. No signature, standout hop quality here, at least opposed to the interesting malt bill. A quiet, but lingering bitterness. Last taste is a cracker grain. Overall, a smooth, flavorful, and original double IPA. Gonna get this on draft during my next visit to the brewery. I'd love to try this at peak freshness. williamstome (1993) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2017
Gold pour, white head. Hazy, lightly hoppy aroma. Flavor of toasted malt, and dry floral hops. Alright. Quick3Beers (1424) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2017
Pours a hazy dark amber/copper from a bottle. Big fruit nose, citrus, stone fruit and melon are all present and accounted for. Similar flavor but with a nice but not cloying sweetness. Not very bitter at all, could've used a bit. Amazingly smooth, didn't realize there was rye in the grain bill til I read the description here, makes a lot of sense, nice big round mouthfeel. Pretty good beer. MrTipple (6471) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2017
Straw, sweet grain malts, light wood, unripe tropical fruits. Hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Medium bitter. More bitter, unripe tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, pineapple, sweet citrus fruits, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Decent IPA, nothing too spectacular though.

Clear blond. Aroma and flavour have a nice malt / hop balance. Moderately sweet. Rather boozy tasting considering the abv.
