Bomber poured a hazy amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, pine, carmel and light tangerine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, grapefruit, orange zest and a hint of pine with a smooth dry lingering bitter grapefruit finish. crossovert (12666) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2013
650ml bottle. Amber pour. Hay, cereal, and sliht maralade in the scent. Flavor is very candy like, like marzipan, almondy, vegetal, medium to high bitterness. Dry hopping with fresh hops for 6 weeks is just overkill and it doens’t help this one at all. If it were a few weeks and dried hops it would have made a huge difference in the hop presence.

Pretty typical Sprecher-quality beer...clunky, jumbled, aimless, off-notes, homebrew-ish. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2013
This one poured a bubly golden yellow with a white head. Aroam was of lots of citra and light caramel. Flavor was similar, not over ther top bitter, but nice fruity and tropical citra goodnes. Not sure where all these bad ratings are coming from. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Amber with a half finger quickly fading taupe head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, bready malts, floral hops and vegetal notes. Taste is sweet and vegetal with citrus and floral fresh hops. Finishes mildly bitter with a touch of alcohol. Not bad... for Sprecher

Bomber from Ray’s in Tosa. Pours a coppery orange with a foamy white head leaving nice lacing. Aroma has dank malts and faint fruit. Taste is of bitter citrus, pale malts, some sugar and some earthiness. Thick and rough. Finishes dank and bitter with some sweetness. There is some simcoe, but not getting any citra - should’ve done an additional dry hopping - and not significantly different than their iipa. Itzjerm (2794) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - FEB 13, 2015
A bit off on the finish. Hop blast more on the side of citrus peel than a balanced citrus flavor. I’m a hop head it was not my delight. For a double IPA not the mouthfeel at all. Disapointing for sure. beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Dark orange. Small wispy white head, lasting with lace. Aroma is lots of caramel, lots of citrus, some pine, some alcohol, fairly sweet. Medium body. moderate to high bitterness, resin, and some sweetness. Definitely different compared to other 2IPA but the palate grew on me a little over the course of the bottle. Kinda goofy.

22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper orange with a small white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2014
The aroma is sweet bready caramel malts and peppery minty hops.
The flavor is sweet bready malts with some tropical fruits and minty peppery hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low prickly carbonation.
Overall, an OK but not too exciting DIPA.
this was a decent IPA. nothing fancy, nothing great. above average is the best I can say
