Great palate, aromatic but the hop nose doesn’t follow through as much as I expected in the mouth. No alcohol noticeable which is surprising at 9.4%.

Michigan..huh? You are alright in my book. I love the upper peninsula. Anyways, this is a satisfying imperial. You know.. that strong IPA your taste buds are waiting for. Go for it! That’s what it’s there for. Enjoy;)

Bomber. Citrus hop aroma with notes of grapefruit acidity. Pours dark copper colored with a big off white head with good retention and some lacing. Starts with a bit of caramel, but is quickly overtaken by the grapefruit citrus and piney hops. Finishes dry with hop bitterness but balances well so it's not overpowering. Good stuff.

Flaska. Fina dipa dofter. Fruktig o balanserad. Smakerna sitter mycket bra för här finns torkad frukt lätt maltig o fin efterbeska. Helt klart en trevlig dipa som kommer att drickas fler gånger.

Poured from the bottle of the 4-pack, sweet, hoppy and strong, with a bitter aftertaste. 10% is hardly noticeable because I’m wasted and didn’t see it coming.

Bottle purchased at Elevated in South Minneapolis. Poured into Moeder Lambic glass from Brussels. Slight haze running through a golden orange like colored IPA. Nose is definitely assertive. Tropical fruit and citrus notes. Taste follows along with the tropical fruit theme with a boozy presence looming throughout the sip. Nice bitterness balanced with a healthy dose of sugary sweetness. Pine and resin are felt. This one is a borderline double IPA and that’s probably why I’m such a big fan. A tip of my hat to you New Holland. This one’s good.

Pours a lacing, beige head with a pale copper body. Pineapple, mango, vanilla aroma. Resinous, peach, pineapple, malt flavor. Dry, bitter, fruity finish.

Courtesy of kiefdog. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma has pine and resiny hops to go along with some spicy hops and slick sweet maltiness. The taste is much the same with thick hoppiness I love to sink my teeth into going from pine, resiny sap and grassiness to spicy hops that all run straight into smooth slick malt sweetened hop flavor. Wow, solid IIPA.

Pours orange/brown with a nice off white head. Aroma is big citrusy, spicy hop. Flavor is full of citrusy, resiny hop with a nice bitter finish. Very good.

Bomber from Archer Liquors. Pours amber copper with a foamy off-white head. Lots of resin aroma hop. Medium plus body with mild carbonation. Flavor is lots of (mostly resin?) hop over caramel. But the effect is tremendous. Finishes well balanced. Quite tasty.
