22oz bottle from Sprouts. Orange thick foam, could smell the grassy hops as I poured. Remarkably clear, bubbles continued up from bottom of pint glass. Upon initial taste, extremely bitter...real bitter..I had a similar experience with a Lagunitas, I believe it was Lagunitas. It may be due to flower hops...but i have no idea if either uses flowers. So I set it aside to let it breath...what a paradigm shift in flavor. Big melon grassy hop flavor with a slight nutty malt backbone. Certainly an archetype for an Imperial IPA.
On tap at Oceanside Ale Works, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out dank, herbal hops and biscuity malt. Flavour is similar, with lots of dank, herbal hops and dry biscuity malt. Nicely balanced, with a good herbal hop character. Very good. mjg74 (3182) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Bomber from K&B. Hazy medium amber with some sediment floating around. Sweet nose with some pungent hop character. Sweet and malty. Not all that hoppy. Not a great 2IPA, but more of a malty strong ale. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016

Very hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy, mildly dry and has light crispness. Thin malts. Light estery sweetness. A little orange peel. Apricot! Mellow marmalade. Airy finish. It’s on okay beer but I would have never guessed this was a DIPA blind. Where are the hops? Hardly any here at all. Lame lame DIPA.
Full bodied as advertise poured in sniffer and the head was pretty much non existent after a few moments. High alcohol pretty well hidden. taste of ripened fruit just the right amount of bitterness. Finish is better then the start. Fatehunter (2614) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Pours a thin head on a hazy dark straw body.
The aroma is ripe dark fruits.
The taste starts with fruit sweetness, then boozy sweet and finishes with a mild bitter note.
The texture is thicker.
A bit sweet for me but fine.

(En fût à la brasserie): Une légère invasion de diacétyl en entrée et une avalanche d’agrumes immédiatement ensuite. Des phénols et autres esters ferreux n’aident en rien la présence d’alcool. Décevant. Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2015
The ONLY good things about this beer were that A. It looked great in the glass with a large very long lived head and decent lacing and B. I got this on sale for $3 a bomber. The rest is all down hill. It smelled like flowers and old cereal. Tasted like sucking on a flower petal. Was watery with a way too dry long bitter finish almost like aspirin. Slammed a couple big mouthfuls followed by a shot of Fireball to kill the taste. The rest was DRAIN POUR! Capa (3437) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Copper. Citrus and sweet malt. Not a lot going on here. Decent. (Draught in tasting room) jh773 (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2015
Ruddy orange with a huge head like sponge cake that takes a very long time to reduce. Smell is tangy and subtle. Ale is rich and spicy with a citrusy malt backbone. Palate is slightly flat. TattooJack (534) - Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2015
From the bomber this is the ex-pa not an ipa and I could tell, not a lot of spices but really strong and chunky like a bread dumpling covered in gravy that gives you a buzz.
