Bottle at Block Party. Pours clear copper with a medium, white head. Bit hop aroma with sweet citrus and grass. Flavor has a nice, sweet malt profile followed by heavy, bitter hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with lip-smacking bitters and light, bready malts. Solid. fiulijn (20411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2006
Amber color; generous and creamy head. Nice aroma of malt and hops, some fruits and resins. Good malty body, with a light liquorice taste, and an interesting bitterness, without being exaggerated; the hops are quite resiny; in the final the bitterness raisies. Mild emotions.

Bomber from Barley Wine in Copenhagen. I had been craving something hoppy all evening and finally I get around to opening this. Clear copper amber colour with a lasting ivory head. Big syrupy piney hoppy nose. Spicey hop with some kind of tangeriney citrus fruit too. I’d been saving this for 5 months to have on a special evening when I could really appreciate it and you know what? It hasn’t let me down. I love this brewery and this is another more than solid beer. They just take the styles and do it so much better. Just so remarkably fresh in its flavours. I mean I love the pale ale and this is just as good. God I love the hops on this. But the mouthfeel is deep and full as well. Really good carbonation. Beats stuff like Great Divide in my opinion. Less malty syrupy and more on the hop side without being stupidly hoppy. No alcohol unpleasantness at all. Bit of heat on end, but not excessive. The pale ale I think is perfect. This is almost as good but not quite as the pale ale I would drink all night, but a bomber of this is probably sufficient, but I would still want a bottle every night. Exceptional. It’s the mouthfeel that I just find so good. God that really is hoppy. Just what I wanted. I’m burping hop. Lovely. The carbonation is both soft and insistent at the same time. saxo (18208) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 26, 2009
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich hops, flowers and citrus. Some caramel and malt as well. Very good balance. TBone (17439) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2009
Clear amber-copper color, small white head. Strong aroma of pineapple and hops. Quite sweet and malty flavor with lots of pineapple and resiny notes. Some citrus in the finish too. Not really powerful for IIPA. And seems that I am not a fan of pineapple and hop combination -to me this looks a bit overrated here.
