digrod (138) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Poured into IPA glass from bottle. Hazy golden color. Aromas of spice, various fruit, pine, and oak. Flavors of the same plus caramel, molasses, and plantains. Initially sweet with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Dangerously smooth for 11.25%. Well done. Defreni (3286) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2014
Flaske: Orange klar øl med et flot skumhoved. Duft af humle, tropisk frugt og citrus. Smagen er frisk selvom den indeholder et dejligt alkobid. Super lækker øl. BuckeyeBoy (8301) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 28, 2014
22oz bottle thanks to Matt. Pours out a nice golden topped with a small head. Nose is pine citrus hops tropical fruit and caramel sweetness. Taste is as the nose with a great hop mix and a good malt to balance it out. SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2014
One of my first from the brewery. This one pours a dirty penny color with maybe a slight orange hint. A big off white head on an easy pour. A huge hop aroma. Like swimming through a floral hop field. A fresh potent aroma. A strong hop flavor right off the bat. Almost minty. It leaves a giant hop flavor on the whole mouth. Not boozy exactly. But an overall strength is present. Still has a certain drinkable quality. An almost rubbing alcohol note is felt all around. Still a refreshing nice and strong triple. VinegarStroke (442) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle: clear, dull medium deep honey, with moderate head and ok lace.very hoppy lift. Tropical, citrus and vegetation. Clean. Dense. Not green or reductive. Dry, not sour but bitter. Massive. Dense long and hot. Just a bruit. Classic over the top west coast IPA. Huge. This beer is one to share.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh).
Poured a nice amber. Strong aroma - stronger taste. This is an 11.5% beer that has a very strong flavor, but that taste is not of alcohol. Definitely worth getting again.

Poured a honey, caramel, semi-clear color with two fingers of rocky white head. Sporadic spider web foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Above average retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled a plethora of hops up front. Got grapefruit, citrus, Cascade, floral, orange rind and light resin. Also some rye, caramel and orange creamscickle.
Tasted pretty close to the smell. Got citrus hops, Cascade hops, orange creamscickle, floral hops, grapefruit, nectarine and caramel. Some bitterness, but the 11.25 percent ABV felt about 7 percent.
Medium-to-light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, slightly bitter finish.
Just a fantastic double IPA. I’ve wanted to try it for a while and I’m glad I finally did.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Bomber received in trade. Thank you StefanSD! Pours hazy golden with a rather small frothy offwhite head that leaves lots of sticky lacing and trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, tiny fruity and tiny herbal with caramel, sweet dark bread, resinous wood, pine needles, moist grass, grapefruit rinds, orange peal and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and herbal with caramel, sweet dark bread, biscuits, resinous wood, pine needles, lemon balm, grapefruit juice, orange peal, moist grass and hints of metal. Mouthfeel is round, tiny sticky sweet, oily bitter, slightly boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter and herbal with caramel, toffee, grapefruit rinds, pine needles, resinous wood, moist grass, orange peal, lemon zest and alcohol. Less than 3 months old but very sticky. Tasty US style barley wine, only the slight metal notes drags it down. larsniclas (7194) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014

Caramel in the aroma and biscuits in the flavour. Slightly metallic.
The flavour is sweet. And alcoholic. Sweet fruits.
