Bomber. No idea what the label has to do with anything. Pretty, pale marigold orange and an anemic ivory head. I appreciate that the beer is pale, not red or brown as so many 2IPAs are. The nose is rife with tropical fruits and Christmas tree, also toffee malt aroma... but weird plastic and lychee lurk in the shadows. Tastes semisweet and insanely fruity, but not neccesarily hoppy, with a big presence of sultanas and white rum, and hints of orange and MD20/20. Thin razor bitterness and bracing alcohic heft. Creamy without being "thick". The aftertaste combines fruity apple and hot asphalt. Some jagged edges and quality issues throughout. Except for the abv, doesn’t seem especially "imperial".
Can. BBE Nov 2017; Drank May 2017 - Clear orangey gold in colour. Good foamy white head. Heavy malty, sweet malts, caramel / toffee. Grapefruit citrus, orange, marmalade. Piney resinous hops. Quite syrupy. Noticeable alcohol. Sweet-bitter heavy malty and citrus fruity throughout. Lingering bitter dry finish. (2017-05) patricks110 (2486) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 11, 2017
Decent IIPA but come across a bi sweet for me and lacks a big punch of resin. Mild caramel and toasted malts blended with citrus and orangey hops, light mango and Pineapple notes. Overall bitterness is heavy and the alcohol comes through on the finish. Unbalanced and kind of boring overall. thorongil2 (2995) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2017
(Tap) hazy, bright orange colour with a small white head; aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, then jam; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish JohnnyJ (5545) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 30, 2017
On draft. Orange pour, with an off white head. Sweet, malty, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, bitterness and alcohol. Ok. Thisis12ptfont (1172) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - APR 19, 2017
Aromas of fresh mango, papaya, grain malt, carbonated malts, ale yeast, grass and stonefruit. Pours copper with a quarter finger white head. Taste brings heavy bitterness, resin, hop oils, leafy hops and dankness upfront. Mid palate gives way to caramel, grapefruit, honey, malt syrup, bittersweet roasted sugars, stonefruit and metallic mango. Finishes with heavy bitterness and booze. Blood orange, mango and grapefruit juice balance around the palate as well. Solid offering for sure. B+ rating.

(12,xx€). Pale ambery, clear. Thick pine caramels malty nose, like a really classic west coast ipa amplified. Full bodied, loads of sweets, bitters, everything. Soft bittery, almondy ripe malty caramels, bit oxidized old vibe to it all. No surpruses here. A ska piny brew amplified. Old feeling can. Bbe 10/17 still..

Pours a hazed peach, ivory head, lace, looks nice. Aroma of mild grapefruit, white grape peel, fresh woods. Crisp, almost spritzy on the tongue. Resin, citrus, some breadiness on the tongue...Slight spice in the finish. Not bad, but no hook to take it to another level. gunnfryd (14815) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2017

Can (BB 10/2017, Beer Hunters). Slightly hazy orange-copper color, medium-sized white head. Green hop cone aroma, grassy, earthy. Medium-bodied. Front has fruity sweetness, pineapple, spicey hops, citrus and quite warming alcohol. Could be freshier. simontomlinson (329) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2017
Off white rocky head stayed well on a murky dark golden, still coloured body.
Bitter/Sweet aroma of tropical fruits & peach.
Medium to full bodied. Smooth on the tongue - a little tickle on the back. Dry on the aft.
Tropical fruits, bitter hops, caramel, pith, grapefruit - Very much a Bitter/Sweet flavour.
