On tap at Barley’s Taproom and Pizzeria in Asheville, NC. Dark copper colored pour with an impressive, dense off-white head. Tangerine, grapefruit, and sweet caramel malt aroma. One of the most perfectly balanced flavors of any DIPA I’ve run across; tangerine, a hint of roses, and caramel. Alcohol is very well hidden at first but is detectable at the end of the glass. Excellent overall. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Draft at brewer. First this beer has a great scent! Malts, hoppy, caramel and butterscothch? Clear orange color with a large creamy off-white head. Taste is sweet and bitter with a little booze hint. Very nice! Travlr (25854) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2012

From Bruisn’ Ales.Pours very thick head that leaves very thick lace, on grapefruit body. Aroma is hoppy, not crazy hoppy. Chinook, Nugget, very well malted. 130 IBU rated but not getting that at all. Grapefruit,some tangerine, very tasty. Dangerously drinkable.Bomber gone, 20 minutes. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Called triple pale, and that’s what it is. merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Bomber pours a slightly hazed copper/orange body with a gushing ecru hued head. Lavish lacing. Aroma is floral and fruity, with orange blossom, pink grapefruit, and some floral hops. Taste is dominated by leafy, earthy, bitter hops with a pink grapefruit note and some chewy caramel malt. Very nice.

Pours a hazy, orannge, yet amber hue, forming a great head of craggley foam. Aroma pungent with hoppish pines, resins, mango, cantalope and light malty air. Flavour is immediate of tropical fruit character, both pine hops and a rather smooth malt kick into a balanced symphony of blissful heaven. Truly a triple pale ale, most excellent organic beer. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: A cloudy amber/copper color with a fluffy white head.
S: Very malty, grapefruit, pine, and some floral notes.
T: Quite sweet. Good grapefruit flavor comes through despite a lot of caramel maltiness, and a bit of pineapple as well. A decent hop bitterness rounds things out.
M: Medium body, fairly high carbonation. Coats the tongue well.
D: This beer drinks a bit more like a barleywine than a DIPA, but it’s still got enough of those IPA characteristics to make it a pretty easy drinker. FSUScott (112) - Rome, Georgia, USA - MAR 12, 2010
beautiful golden color. sweet smell, almost like soap. very hoppy taste with a sweet tone in it. good feel and goes down fairly smooth. beasley269 (15) - Rutherfordton, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Moderately sweet almost nutty aroma, medium brown in color with a beige head that maintains nice lacing. I taste hints of caramel and almonds. Its very slick on the tongue. The finish is sweet yet has hints of bitterness, almost reminds me of dried fruit. Quite unique but a delicious brew none the less. Came out of a growler picked up straight from the brewery.

Draft at the Taproom in Ashville. Pours a unclear amber with a big orange head. aroma is super hoppy. Flavor is a punch of hops, clean super bitter with nice bite. 3.5 grams hops per pint of beer. I did’nt think that beer could be any hoppier. I enjoyed this one.
