UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 Pours a hazy, burnt orange color with a rocky three finger off white head. Surprisingly big head for the high alcohol content. Head sticks around and leaves a thick blanket of lacing after it diminishes. Smells of pine, grass, tangerine, lemon, lime, just lots of citric qualities and lots of earthiness on the nose. Very resinous and bitter but get a little carmel malt and some butterscotch in the background in the smell. Taste starts with the citrus fruits like grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, as well as some floral notes. Also get the some carmel or toffee up front. Then in the middle you get more of the sweetness of the carmel malt, as well as the same citrus flavors and floral from before. Pretty juicy, yet subdued in terms of bitterness thus far. Then on the finish the bitterness comes like a rush. You get some citrus fruits with grapefruit being the strongest flavor, accompanied with a much larger dose of grass and resinous pine. Definite alcohol flavor on the finish, along with some sweet malts. I’ve had many other dipas as this level of alcohol that do a much better job hiding it. Very chewy from the hop oils. Very biting and abrasive bitterness that lasts in your mouth. Has a wonderful creamy mouthfeel that works well with the bitterness. As it warms, more of the carmel malt shows through and becomes a little sweeter. Full body with a sticky and oily texture. Not the most balanced double ipa, but Port was not going for that. They wanted to show off the hop, and they definitely succeeded in doing that. A very intense and surprisingly somewhat balanced double ipa.
Bomber freshly (bottled? NN) catered by BA-beersnake, merci! Shared at Freiburg Deluge Tasting Aug2017. - perfect Oldschool execution of abv-powered, but not-abv-fuming pine resins and exotic fruit jam. Thick hop oil nose damp (more than dank) with fresh citrus pith and pine resins, with just an edge of ripe mango alcohols. Flavour reminds me of candied lemon pieces mixed in a whipped passionfruit quark, dessertlike without letting the Crystal/caramalts get the better of its lupuline freshness. Remarkable rstraint for a lush 15 hop IIPA. Gorgeous to be able to sample this so fresh - a flat post-tasting 10cl residu worked wondes to pep up the Mrs’ Feierabendpils. llkc (2503) - århus, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2017

potężnie nachmielone, niebezpiecznie pijalne, bo alkohol świetnie ukryty, goryczka więcej niż solidna, ale nie zalegająca, bardzo solidne double ipa, za pierwszym razem byłem nim wręcz zachwycony, choć ta mieszanka piętnastu chmieli działa baardzo nasennie Bebum (1018) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 11, 2017
