Bottle from City Beer. Pours orange amber with a tiny beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor with a slight bit of fruit (apricot?) and a dry bitter alcohol finish. A nice sipper. The 200 IBU is surprisingly not overwhelming. oRos (1675) - sacramento, California, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours Orange with no head. Taste is very bitter with a very sweet finish. Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2015
rbwg2015. Bottle, courtesy of Sledutah, pours with a hazy brown body that supports a light tan head. The aroma offers up thick malts, molasses, brown sugar mixed with hard candy clementine and mango and pineapple as well as soft candied floral hops. Smells inviting. The taste delivers thick smooth malts, molasses and a wide load of malt sweetened pine and floral hops that are rimmed with various citrus and tropically fruity notes. Solid. dmac (6211) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Bomber from SHIG, thanks bro. Poured a thick chunky deep amber body with an average sized dense creamy eggshell colored head. Aroma of rotting citrus, old honey, sweet wort, dough, bad citrus fruit, rotting flowets. Big full body, creamy, some ABV heat lingers on the back of your throat. Flavor is thesame as the aroma. Not sure I love the triple IPA style. bhensonb (15095) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very, very hazy copper with a slight off-beige head. Aromas of barley wine with lots of resin/citrus - quite sweet. Full bodied or nearly. It begins with a burn on tongue tip. Think it’s hop, cause the heat is pretty much lost in one of the hoppiest things I’ve been aware of. Flavors go pretty citrus, seemingly including rind. How do we know this isn’t an overly hopped barley wine? Does it matter? Damn, but this is strong, bitter and hoppy. Finishing so hoppy it seems dry, though with all the malt it maybe shouldn’t be called dry. Wow.

Tasting at Matt’sFerris (15020) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
Cloudy reddish amber color, small head. Full bodied, rather sweet, with strong candyish caramel flavor, strong bitterness, some orange taste.
Finally, not a bad beer, but it tastes like an aged/old beer.
Bottle - Caramel and sweet orange. Cloudy orange with a decent white head. Orange peel, candied orange, caramel and a long finish. Not bad. mcberko (17328) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours an opaque amber orange with a small white head. Aroma is quite dry, with big resinous hops, citrus fruits (especially grapefruit), and dry bready caramel malt. Flavour brings out big grapefruit notes upfront, along with oranges and some lemon, with resinous hops, and moderately sweet caramel malt. Big n bold, with a high amount of malty sweetness and sugary quality on the finish. Well-balanced even if sweet, but though just shy of being a really elegant triple IPA. Good stuff, but not completely on the mark. slowrunner77 (11930) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 28, 2015
10.5% and 200 ibu. Pours thick copper. Smell isn’t dramatically hoppy. Lots of malt and spicy hops and a little heat. Expected more candied fruit and/or florals. medium to full bodied, fairly smooth for the abv. Flavor is good, but almost more barleywine like than IPA. Decent, but not for the price. jtclockwork (16444) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours orange white head. Nose/taste of hoppy citrus, grapefruit and caramel malt. Medium body.
