Peanut hulls, unmalted and unhusked barley, and orange peel aroma. Cloudy amber, medium sticky yellow head. Overripe apricot, maraschino cherries, grain, bread crust, crackers. Very busy and certainly not boring.Some DMS. Spellbinding complexities, neat transitions, good balance, one of a kind, but slightly flawed. Entertaining. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2014

Bomber from Liz. Pours light amber with a 3 finger foamy off-white head. Aromas of pine and grapefruit rind. Med body; frothy carb. There is so much hop it burns! Full of fresh pine and citrus. A little caramel underneath. Just excellent. Resin all over. Going astringent! blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Composite review of tap and bottle samples. Currently the 22 oz. bottle is in front of me. Pour: clear golden body with large white head. Aroma: orange and grapefruit, caramel. Taste: quite hoppy without being very bitter, full of smooth and resinous hops qualities, plenty of juicy citrus, not many malt characteristics other than white-bread sweetness, alcohol well hidden. Aftertaste: more hops bitterness. Mouthfeel: a bit thin for the style, yet succulent. Overall: a DIPA that provides complex layers of hops characteristics, avoiding explosive bitterness in favor of a more deep and subtle experience. It gets better and better as you drink it.

Sampled at GBBF 2013, London - Day 2. Pours clear gold with a modest, foamy white froth head. Heavy resinous hops in the nose with big mango, orange and grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor with rich and juicy citrus, melon, mango, pine, pale malt sugars. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Well and resinous to finish with lightly dry citrus now, juicy character, sticky sugars. Rich and hefty but very solid. Good condition, too, which is key. planky84 (3263) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014

2014, London (13/08/2014) - fuzzy dark golden coloured pour with off-white head. Aroma and taste is tropical fruity, some medium light caramel malts, and toffee, prominent hoppy, pine needles on the palate, solid bitter finish. Beautiful.
