COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At the height of the heat in the heart of the summer, we felt that the only cure was a raging mouthful of fresh hops and malt. Caution: May remove enamel from teeth. This is Lagunitas IPA pumped up by about 30%!

Pours crystal clear with a firm head. Aroma is huge cascade, with some hints of crystal malt. Flavor is big hops upfront but with a strong malt backing, lots of crystal, yet fairly light body. Alcohol is apparent, but not aggressive or overwhelming. Definitely one of the top IPAs out there.

More of an IPA than a DIPA, but a fine tasting brew nonetheless. Nice balance, wonderful hop aroma escapes the glass, taste is balanced between bitterness and sweet malt. Super balance, and a great IPA.

Gold with a pillow of white head formation on top. The aroma is gorgeously strong of flowery fresh hops with a layer of citrus hiding behind. It delightfully adds to the anticipation of tasting the beer bellow. The flavor is surprisingly light on bitter hoppiness upfront. While the hops are clearly noticeable, the bitterness is well masked by the citrus and sweetness. The body is easy to cut through and the alcohol is deceptively tame making this a dangerous IPA in the wrong hands. I could drink this all night.

Bottled. Pours honey-colored, off-white head. Nose is hops, resin, citrus, and pine. Flavor is surpirsingly sweet, with hop resin, grapefruit, and pine notes. Finishes with a nice hop bite. Sticky mouthfeel.

golden amber appearance with slight white head and very slight carbonation. flavor is well balanced with both a strong malt character and pronounced hop presence. no hint of the 7.5 percent alcohol. only knock would be the extreme balance makes the beer somewhat unremarkable despite how impressive that balance may be

mreusch (858) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Bomber, pours a clear golden orange with a large white head, great lacing. Aroma is piney hops, with some grass and citrus. Flavor is similar with more pine and grass, and a fairly subtle bite. On the milder end for a DIPA, but pleasant and enjoyable all the same.

Ibrew2or3 (8912) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Bomber pours a crystal clear copper with lasting off white head and spotty lacing. Nice aroma mixture of pine hops and mild sweet malts plus crystal malts. The taste is similar with up front pine and grassy hop bitterness followed by mild sweet malts and a dash of earthiness. Midway grapefruit hop bitterness takes over. The malts and hops meet at the finish on equal terms creating nice balance. The after taste is mild with lingering hop bitterness.
