5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours deep amber orange w/a small off wite head that disipates quickly. To the nose it has nice sweet floral hops, pine and some citrus. First taste is sweet hops, some honey undernotes and a hop bite that then lingers on the palate. I’m giving this one a 5! It is all that you can ask for from and imperial IPA. I love it, job well done. Cheers!

Tap at Rattle N Hum, New York, 20th November 17. Pours clear, amber. Aroma is malt, bitter citrus. Taste is malt, sweet and then bitter, booze, unusual after taste. Good. jinroh (2365) - ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2017
Pours clear orange-amber, not too carbonated nor foamy. Nose is full on hoppy, nicely balanced against that caramel sweet - but grassy hopped and resiny - body. Taste reveals more of that heavier and hoppier character, something that drinks dangerously easy although some alcohol is there and it even warms you a bit. Beer that appeals to me as a session beer - although by all accounts, it should not be that. Loving this.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2017 Very strong Hops aroma that is pleasantly nice. Pours Crystal Clear Golden with a slight orange tint. Has 1 fat finger of head that dissipates in about a minute with good lacing. Taste is very smooth and drinkable with (wait for it) lots of hops. Piney, mild citrus, slight sweet caramel hints with a nice bitter finish. Did I mention the Hops? Another great beer by Lagunitas. bd94840 (1) - - OCT 25, 2017 does not count
Nice overall body, aroma, flavor. I’d definitely purchase again. ABV 8.0%. Another fine product from the people at Lagunitas.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2017 Btl pours a bronze color with a big off white head that lingers leaving lots of lace on glass. Aromas of perfume,pine sap, flowers ,citrus fruit, with a hint of dankness.Tastes sweet caramel,honey, tangerines, oranges, grapefruit and lemon. Medium body, perfect carbonation, smooth, silky mouth feel and a mellow bitter somewhat dry and warm finish. An imperial that drinks like a pale. I could crush a few of these. Simply amazing! teamsale (317) - Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2017
Bomber pours a clear golden orange with a two finger eggshell head that takes a while to dissipate and leaves great lacing. Aroma is citrus and malt. Taste is a heavy hop sweet citrus grapefruit with just enough malt to counter the medium bitterness. Works pretty well overall but seems just a hair much of... well... everything.
