tmoreau (4096) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2009
On tap at the Bavarian Lodge, Lisle, IL. for a Lagunitas tapping and sampling. Poured to a 13 oz. pub glass an orangy amber, with a silky white, foamy head and clingy, draping lace. The aroma was bright citrus as grapefruit and orange accompanied by a pleasant malt sweetness. The flavor added to these a well rounded dose of hop bitterness and some resiny notes, culminating in a nice, dry finish. Excellent balance and very enjoyable, especially for a "not too often" tap appearance.

22oz Bomber. This beer pours a burnt orange color with a bright white head that laces the glass. Lots and lots of citrus taste in the brew. The citrus fades after a while but is still quite prevalent. When you get to the middle of the brew you really taste the bitterness and that continues to the finish.

alagnak (468) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Bomber. Aroma is crisp and piney, light tropical fruit. Flavor is fruity to start (papaya and pink grapefruit) with an assualt of bitter pine and a nice grassiness in the middle. Finish is surprisingly mellowed by a nice wheat bread toast malt finish. Nice, refreshing and not a hint of the ABV.

acblue (91) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2009
Dark golden color, small white head. Tons and tons and tons and tons of hops. Bitter as all get out. A fun beer and successful in its execution but not something Id care to drink often.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2009
22oz. bottle from VBM. $4.99 thank you very much!! Pours a clear copper body with a medium sized white head that diminished rather quickly. Decent lacing. Aroma is musty, pine, fruit. Flavor is sweet grapefruit with a solid amount of hops. There is some serious hoppy bitternes but its also very smooth malty calm notes. Medium bodied. Nice DIPA.

beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Clear gold with tiny white head that hanga around. Piney hop scent. Taste is crisp and refreshing with the dry pop on the back. I like it!

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2009
22 oz Bottle from Total Wine. Clear and a deep gold in color with a small head comprised of compact tiny bubbles. Very slight lacing. Aromas of mango, citrus and bubblegum. Body is medium and not as slick or full as others in the style. As it warms Im getting some doughy notes in the aroma. Overall pretty balanced but not over the top like some Imperials I worship.

22oz bomber from Rodmans in DC. Pours a nice amber/golden with a modest head and lots of lacing. Extremely fresh bottle, smells of pine/grapefruit with a similar taste. Very hoppy with a citrus taste. I plan on buying more.
