22oz bomber shared during the Central Jersey BA tasting. Poured a little thin ner looking clear gold with a large soapy bright white head. Aroma/flavor is rather dank, dry citrus rinds, grapefruit, touch of pine needles. Add a touch more pine and some alcohol for the flavor. Medium body, syrupy, very well hidden ABV and a lingering aftertaste. Great beer. beer-yum (1704) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 7, 2015
UPDATED: APR 30, 2016 Restrained aroma in a golden amber pour. Would have to be a benchmark of the style (TIPA). Brilliant in being able to hide its strength and brilliant in its ability to put one in the gutter. Definitely a beer to finish a session. Stuu666 (13367) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours golden amber, nose is citrus, pine, taste is fruity bitterness, dry bitter finish. dagimp (1008) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Bottled 12-10-14. From a bomber into a snifter. Pours pinkish hazel. Gooey white head. Tropical and grapefruit aroma. Mouthfeel is surprisingly light for this big an IIIPA. Taste is bitter with some tropical fruit. Little booze. Good but not great beer. I would have expected much better for the ratings and abv.

Bottle from Healthy Spirits, SF. Cloudy, murky golden with a small head. Tropical fruits hoppiness, mango nose followed by a punch of citrussy hop flavours. Very refreshing and super bitter all the way. Makes its point very clear.

Very well balanced. Cherries, grapes, and pine. Lingering finish. Alcohol well hidden. Marheb (5749) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Une présence résineuse colossale et sirupeuse nous accueille et ne laisse aucun doute sur les intentions du liquide. Verdure, ananas, mangue, sapinage, agrume dans une bête de dégustation propre et collante. Une petite 120 minutes. Storm_Warning (83) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2015
The ideal beer for any hophead, this Triple IPA sure packs a punch; huge upfront Citrus notes of grapefruit, lemon and orange rolling into a dank pine stickiness, slight esters of petrol. Big bodied malts help carry this beer away from a near on full hop overdose, it also helps this beer reach a warming 11.25%! As you could imagine, this beer has a rich bitter finish which you could most likely still taste in the morning. Having this on English soil makes me one happy Englishman!

Bomber from the Co-op. Hazy orange copper color, thin, wispy head, fine lacing. Initial piney orange aroma, hops hit full force at first taste, resinous, grapefruit, caramel malt. Gentle afterglow all the way down the gullet. Nice! fonefan (49293) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2014
