Nice and somewhat fruity smell, I'm slowly working my way into the IPA world, and this was a great welcome.

Bomber from Bev4less. Pours straw golden color with a thin foam head that laces middlingly. Aromas are grainy and grassy of malt... There’s almost a skunkyness to it, but not bad. Taste is full on sweet malt, with hints of brown sugar, roasty barley, and an undertone of something like cinnamon, it’s good and balanced, heavily bitter. Still, there’s something a little off. The ABV is well concealed, and the beer is nice enough.., just something not quite convincing enough to make it "great". Very good nonetheless. Fatehunter (2603) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Poured a thin head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is a nice grain and honey.
The taste is great. The bitterness builds beginning to end with a touch of sweetness at the end for a nice finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Pretty good. Schuh23 (13) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Nice head retention. You can tell it's going to be hoppy from the nose. Definitely a triple ipa, powerful hop taste, a little too much alcohol on the palate, although you can expect that with 11.3%.

22 oz bottle. Very clear gold color with a small, brief, off-white head. Aroma is pine and light citrus that's not overly intense. Medium bitter, light body. Long, unpleasant finish. Overpowered by a perfumy, almost metallic taste. At first I thought it was the alcohol coming through. Disappointing to say the least. I would not drink this again.

Bomber poured a clear golden amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of tangeine, bread, tropical fruit, pink grapefuit and light mint. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, grapefruit, pine and light orange zest with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2013
22 oz bottle. Hazy olive orange with a bone head. Nose is orange, caramel and roses with a hint of pine. Thick and resiny with prickly carb. Hugely bitter grapefruit and orange peel, brief sweet apple, finishing with pine needles. Super hoppy with just enough malt to keep me craving another sip.

22oz bottle pours clear copper. Carmel and hop aroma. Might be a bit dated not much citrus or pine like most west coast triples. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle from Bine & Vine. First off, this is a barley wine, not an IIPA, imo. Pours a clear gold with a sticky white head. Nose is super resiny, pine forward, faint citrus and ethanol. Sweetness in the nose. On tasting, clean alcohol and a big and clean bitterness. Resiny with some sticky malt but a drying finish. Too much alcohol overall.
