bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Drank during hurricane sandy from greenpoint Brooklyn today. Bottled 5 months ago. orange clear with a huge cream orange head, partially lasting with good lace. Aroma is floral, mango, pine, pungent funk, and honey. Flavor is very bitter almost from the start after a brief fruity and malty sweetness; goes herbal and spicy, then tries to be astringent. But the body is very soft and velvet with full active carbonation. Long lasting. I?m surprised it seems to have held up so well but maybe that should be expected from such a big IIPA. A real pleasure and very drinkable.

ALIBALI (1123) - Kiel, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2017
Handelt sich bei meinem Flschchen, Bombergre 😀, um ne 2016ner Ausgabe. Relativ fresh also. Gabs beim MIKKELLER BOTTLE SHOP in Kopenhagen. 92DKK. Schwerst VERHOPFT das Ganze. Hart pampelmusenmatschig und wild DRY. Der Saft, das Elixier und das massiv VERBITTERT. Kratzig, unrund und doch eine Herzensangelegenheit.....zumindest fr Hopheads 😍!!! Wrde ich wieder kaufen, auch wenn der Nachtrunk massiv alkoholisch aufdringlich ist....irgendwie lgger 😉...HARD STUFF!!!

HPDalen (376) - DENMARK - OCT 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Quite malty aroma, caramel, sugar, syrup. Some hoppy grapefruit and orange zest. Fabulous palate, thick and rich body, with just the right carbonation. Bitter finish, long. Mostly bitter with very pleasant sweet tones for balance. Yum!

rumore (185) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 29, 2016
American beers tasting at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours golden with white foam. Aroma, in addition to some herbaceous and resinous, shows alcohol. Taste conforms that, with loads of bitterness and a rather during alcoholic feeling. Extreme. Somehow unbalanced.

bbbeer (773) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 28, 2016
10th anniversary IIPA. Hazy gold-orange, small white head. Boozy, orangy aroma. Full body although alcohol is well-hidden. Flavor is moderately bitter, orange hops, a lot of sweet malt background. Pretty drinkable for 11%, not sure Ill remember much about it.

josanguapo (1317) - SPAIN - SEP 23, 2016
From Zombier. 6? 66cl. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Sword 4. Very resinous. Reminds me my beloved Pseudosue but this one is just a tiny step below because its higher ABV, which is very well hidden but goes up to the head pretty quickly

Fatehunter (2412) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Pours a finger and half of head on a slightly hazy straw body. Aroma is pine forest, grapefruit, lemon and orange. Wonderful. Taste starts mildly sweet, then goes big pine bitterness and finishes with super malty sweet. Texture is thicker.
