Super hoppy aroma with strong spicy yeasts. Clear orange color with a medium white head. Hop flavor throughout sweet in the beginning and pretty bitter in the finish. I’m impressed with the quality of the hop extract but I think its missing something in the bitterness. The mix of an IPA and a farmhouse is amazing. imadeadguy (378) - back in NJ!, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Bomber. Pour is light amber with small lacy white head. Aromas of piney hops, citrus, and some caramel. Flavor is very fruity with pear, melon, citrus, pine resin, and the finish is smooth. No alcohol present at all and damn what a nice brew. spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2009
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Clear dark amber with a very large three finger off white head. Very good amount of lacings. Aroma is big piney resinous hops. Taste is dark leathery citrus grapefruit orange hops with a very substantial sweet rich malts. Mouthfeel is excellent and it is an easy drinker in spite of the 7.7% (on the label) abv. Exceptional beer. One of my new favorites in this style. Buy it quick before the word gets out about this delicious beer. cathcacr (647) - Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Extreme hop pungency highlights every aspect of this beer, from aroma, flavor and palate right down to the appearance. Many hops died in the production of this monster, but as some evils go, it was necessary to break a few eggs to make this omelet. Extra kudos due to the brewer for its homage to a great classic rock band on its label blurb. Pungency was not my thing at the time of rating, so I may have underrated it. If hop-pungency and drying bitterness is right up your alley, you will be pleased.

Bottle. Pours amber with a thin white/off white head. Aroma is big grapefruit hops, with yeasty undertones. Flavor is very hoppy, with notes of pine and grapefruit. Slightly sweet malty notes in the finish, but this one is definitely very hoppy.

22 oz bottle - pours a crystal clear very light yellow/orange color with smallish white head. Aroma is pretty full of crisp, pungent, grapefruity hops, notes of cilantro and garlic. Flavor is fairly hoppy, piney and grapefruity, with a hint of caramel sweetness. Finish is farily balanced, but has a touch of metallic bitterness at the very finish. A fairly nice DIPA overall. djtimeless (222) - Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2009 Pours out clear light amber with lots of foam. Taste is sweet with lots of hops. Nice fruity citrus flavors with sticky bitter finish. Tasty brew for the money. beerandIT (300) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Nice double IPA, especially for the money. Lot of citrus, but most notably smells and tastes to me like a peach. I thnk that is what is good and for me in the end what is bad about the beer. I personally want my double IPAs to kick me in the teeth. This is nice though if it id di not have so much citrust/peach flavor I would say it was just an IPA. Nice pour with a good amount of head for an IPA type style. Good color. Being that it is under 5 dollars a bomber at my local beer store does not hurt either. I definitely recommend it at least once. hopalpeno (1) - East Bay, California, USA - MAR 15, 2009 does not count

Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 22 oz bomber. Dark orange pour, silky white head that leaves luxurious sticky lacing on the glass. Extremely fresh, sweet fresh aroma with loads of floral notes, clean piney spruce and hints of citrus. Flavor is full of ctrusy grapefruity goodness but is not lip puckering bitter - it’s almost as if someone poured hops directly into the glass. Slight bitterness is balanced out by a nectar sweet caramel syrupy sweetness. Been a while since I have been bowled over a hop bomb - maybe it is my longing to get back out west. Thick, sticky mouthfeel - enjoyed this one immensely.
