Bottle. Came out really bubbly but then settled down with beautiful, pillowy head and lasting quarter finger ring with nice lacing. Carefully poured, still cloudy with suspended sediment. Powerful grapefruit aroma with orange. A lot of mango in the flavor. Slightly muted flavor, not crystal clear, somewhat weak finish. Still, I’m comparing it to other excellent DIPAs, not your average beer. It’s very good. I’d buy it again although I’d buy Hop 15 first. pineypower (3295) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Tap at Capone’s. Pours out a nice, moderate orange/amber color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is of tangerine, grapefruit, and a slight hint of malt sweetness. Taste is complex, lots of straight forward hop flavors, citrus fruits, grapefruit, tangerine, resiny hops and a slight malt background hiding beneath the hops. Very tasty. cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Bomber served in a tulip. Pours hazy dark orange with a massive orange-white head that stays and stays. Hoppy aroma includes big grapefruit, big grass, and big pine resin. Light-medium sweet flavor that eases to citrus bitterness, followed by grassiness, then finishing quite bitter and dry. Medium body, average carb, croily texture. Exceptional hop focused Double IPA. FYI, there’s a giant furry riding the huge wave on the bottle label. dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Bomber Bottle from liqourama.net. Pours a cloudy copper with a medium white head. The aromas are citrus, pine, grapefruit, and bread. The mouthfeel is bitter and dry with a medium heavy body. This was a very solid beer. Nicely done. Cheers! Nickls (2524) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Tap, Leon’s Decatur, GA. Hazy marigold orange with a nice white head and lacing. Grapefruity, lemon-zest, light cat piss, and light pine all feature in the aroma. Lush grapefruit and passion fruits in the flavor, very bitter indeed with some dank and pine flavors. Meidum body with bubbly carbonation. Good brew.

On tap at Eagle Rock Brewery. Hazy golden, big creamy head. Intense grapefruity hoppiness. Exotic fruits in the finish. A great west Coast IPA. SrSilliGose (3330) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 3, 2011

22 oz. bottle shared by lushawn- thanks, Shawn! Seemed to go over well at the pre-DLD tasting in our hotel. Pours a hazy, dull orange color with a lot of sediment visible in the glass, especially for me, who got the last of it. Aroma of citrusy hops, tropical fruits, caramel malts, and sugar. The flaovr follows suit, with a nice, fresh, hoppy, fruity character. No alcohol to be found. Medium-bodied, with a fruit juciy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Dangerously easy to drink. tomthompson89 (1982) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2011
