Draft. Excellent all around. Strong floral aroma, but not too sharp. Strong but well masked so alcohol doesnt overpower. Surprisingly clean finish for. This type. Strong recommed.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint. Appearance: Hazy, somewhat dark yellow with a very white head and light lacing. Aroma: Pine, grapefruit, orange and some toasted & caramel malts. As it sits in the glass, it just starts smelling more bitter than anything else. Taste: Citrusy upfront with grapefruit and orange. Some light toasted malts underneath, but it does not stand up to the hops. Bitter, pine-like finish. Palate: Moderate carbonation, with a medium body that is a little creamy. Excruciatingly dry finish; a little warming as well. Overall: This is a nasty mother of a DIPA, much more bitter than most for a beer that is over 9% abv. Much more bitter than Dreadnaught, and not as smooth and creamy. However, this is still a great DIPA when one is in the mood for some punishment.

Bottle thanks to Jeff! Pour is a clear light copper gold, with a white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is a fair amount of pine hops, lots of white fruit, lots of citrus. Taste is lots of bitter orange peel, bunch of pine, bunch of citrus. Bitter finish, not lasting long though. Not bad at all!

Richmond 16th. Very pale hazy yellow. Massive aroma and flavor of hops, both floral and citric in nature. Bitter - but there is malt body to help balance. Nonetheless, inescapably bitter. But tasty.

Pours a milky golden hue into the glass, with a frothy head that leaves wispy soap lacing. Grapefruit and floral hops to the nose. Flavors are well-balanced between huge citric grapefruit notes, caramel malt and piney bitter hops. Ending on a citrus zest/rind/peel and hop note, this is a very complex and highly quaffable pull. It favors the bitter portion of the palate, rather than the substantial malty balance of the brew, which makes for a lively mouthfeel... somewhat active but hugely substantive. The ABV is hidden superbly in the integrated components. This is a really nice DIPA, seriously.

Pours a hazy gold and the aroma is powerfully packed with piney hops. It is, indeed, powerful. I think I have some goosebumps. I even let out an audible whoa. Thats what 100IBUs will do to you. Loads of oily pine hops with more citrus late. Extremely bitter and dry. No attempt to hide the 9% ABV, either.Spicy hops become more noticeable as it warms. This is one of those brews with no middle ground. Youll either hate it or love it. Those who love bashing, punishing, over-the-top-hopped-brews wont be able to get enough.

Bomber pours a cloudy deep orange with a thin off-white head. Aroma is citrus, melon rinds, piney hops, and caramel. Taste is sweet caramel malts and floral into a stinging citrus and piney hops. Yum!
