Do you like hops? I sure hope you do if you buy this one! Billed as a Triple Hopped brew and I definiately believe it. Pleasant hop flavor to begin with, however, the bitter aftertaste is a bit overwhelming. Its not balanced like a Bigfoot, but one-sided. Micro bubble carbonation. Beautiful amber/golden color. Wonderful hop aroma. Frankly, thats the best part of the beer IMHO. I bought it to try it, but seriously doubt Id buy it again.

Sharp grapefruit aroma with a background chorus or pine, orange and sugar. Thick frothy head on an orange amber beer. Delicious malt sweetness slowly gives way in each sip to the the towering hops ending in a long hop finish. A beautiful accomplishment. Cant believe the light alcohol presence or the balance on the flavour teeter totter. As you drink through the bottle the hops tilt the balance well in their favour.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 Pow! Now this is hoppy. Great sickly sweet hop aroma, big bitter hoppy character, and I mean big. Ive never had anything with this much hop in it. Almost too much hops

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2007 Bottle. Clear copper color with a off-white head. Amazing floral aroma that is super grassy and piney, maybe the best aroma Ive ever gotten from an IPA. Very bitter flavor that doesnt live up to its aroma. Still very balanced with a nice mouthfeel and good carbonation. Rerate... hopmonster. Great great aroma, but the flavor is hugely bitter and unbalanced.

Thanks to Droopy49 for sending this one. Pours with a clear medium amber body under a huge, creamy off white ehad. Flowery grapefruit aroma. The flavor is moderately sweet with a heavy bitterness that overpowers the malt. Bitter from start to finish. This has the hops, but its a bit out of balance without more underlying malt flavors coming through.

Ouch! This hurts! Not in a hot, alcohol burn kind of way but more in an acid reflux kind of way. I didnt even know I had acid reflux. Guess I do now. Thanks Moylans! Seriously, this is one hoppy mutha.

Bomber. One of those OMFG aromas that has West Coast all over it. Just a beautiful beer when poured into a Stella goblet. The name leads you to believe this is going to be a real hopsickle and it stands up to the hype.That takes real balls and I respect that. This is a real tongue buckler and a great IIPA.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2006 Nose is sweet, citrusy and very hoppy, wonderful! Hazy amber body with a tiny off-white head; Sweet mixed with hoppy flavor and a nice hoopy bite to the finish. The ale is super hoppy without being super bitter!

I was very impressed by this brew, very hoppy and smooth. It had a nice aroma, of citrus and hops and flavor was really nice! I love hoppy beers and this will be on top of my list.
