22 oz. bottle, sent from tstockstrom (thanks Chuck), pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is pretty typical for a IIPA, with pine and citrus hops, a bit of floral, and a big caramel malt backbone. Flavour is very bitter, with shitloads of citrusy hops, a big floral quality too, and a sufficient malt backbone. Hugely dominated by the citrus. Semi-sweet without destroying the hoppiness. Solid IIPA, but short of anything overly stimulating. bhensonb (15515) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours clear copper with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Lots of citrus in the aroma. Med body. Flavor is citrus/grapefruit rind over malt that is just barely withstanding the hop. Goes a little piney towards the finish. Why does everyone keep trying to do these hoppy DIPAs? Because they taste really really really good. Like this one. Tmoney99 (14773) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate west coast hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 On draught at the brewpub, served in a snifter. This beer is a clear bright orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Sticky rings of lacing. Piney hops aroma with notes of citrus and malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hoppy character that has pine and citrus notes, along with a nice malty balance. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Pretty good overall. jcwattsrugger (12506) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2013
