Aroma of caramel malt, pine resin, fruits, hint of liquorice, grapefruit, lots of hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a looooong bitter finish. Just a little boozy. Lots of intensity and complexity to this one. Interesting experience drinking this beer. fkoolen (1320) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle at home. Amber colour, slightly hazy, off-white nicely lacing head. Hop character is big on resinous pine and this beer is quite boozy. Additionally, it has a nicely sweet tropical fruitiness (mango, peach, grapefruit) that matches the creamy malty backbone; it’s a little citrus fruity too. Lingering bitter, resinous, oily finish. Dry too. Oily mouthfeel, big big bodied, medium carbonation. Not your average (imperial) IPA, but too bitter for my taste. jackl (8286) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle @ Three Notch’d Tasting. Amber pour with a small head. The nose is actually pretty medicinal. Herbs and loads of white onion. Caramel and bready. Onion, earthy. Strong bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Meh. kambei70 (1102) - - DEC 26, 2014

Bomber bottle to glass. This is a big beer! Dark amber, cloudy pour and creamy head. Big hops aroma. A big mouth feel and taste. Strong hops, but balanced by sweet and subtle citrus. If I had a complaint (which I don't), Hop Dam is maybe a touch sweet in the finish. The ABV is definitely there, but does not overpower. Mmmm...

Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized dense off-white head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, citrus and light toast. Flavor is a lot of pine and citrus hops and light toasted malt. Bitterness sticks around for quite a while. dfearnley (2284) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014

Amber brown hazy pour. Aroma is thick malty sweetness and syrupy hops. Taste is syrupy hop sweetness, bitter hops that claw at the palate, dry hoppy finish with warmth from the booze.
