Reviewed from notes.
She pours a dark reddish color and leaves the same color body with slightly copper edges and a one finger white foamy head that dies immediately. Light lacing sticks to the glass. The smell has a floral malty hoppiness with some orange zest, and grapefruit and honey. The taste has a super malty covered hoppiness in the front and then backed up with a decent hoppy bitterness, long lingering citrus yet hoppy aftertaste, dry finish. On the palate, its about a medium, perhaps somewhat sessionable, and the carbonation seems to be a bit smoother than most DIPA’s, but I’m not complaining.
Overall, this is not a bad DIPA, but I’m just surprised how smooth this one rolls around in my mouth to be a true DIPA. Its like its just too good to be true unless this is old. thorongil2 (3003) - , Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Intense hoppy nose. Flavors of citrus and spruce with some sweet honey notes. Medium bodied, high carbonation, bitter finish. trujahwarrior (510) - Monroe, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bomber half off on clearance must be about 11 months old. Pours a hazy copper color with a thick off white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of honey, pine, grapefruit and caramel. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is slick and oily with good carbonation and a dry finish. It held up pretty well for being almost a year old. Hops are still pretty noticeable but would like to see how it tastes fresh. Might rerate this when this years batch comes out.
