Bottle pour from alexsdad. Orange,amber in color. Lots of citrus hop on the nose. Initial grapefruit hop flavor with some spiciness from the rye. Nice long bitterness. adrian910ss (2572) - Doylestown, PA, USA - MAR 8, 2013
22 oz bomber courtesy of Todd. Pours a cloudy orange vistilite with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of fresh orange citrus, rye, bitter hops and bread malts. Taste of fresh orange citrus, grapefruit, bitter hops and rye bread. Another gem from 3 FFFs. MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Hazy off orange pour w/ a thick tall well laced white head densly made up of little bubbles and dissapates into some soapy looking head. Aroma is first a big hit of citrus and fruity hop aromas. Then some sweet caramel a hint of rye comes through lightly then gets covered up by a second wave of grassy hops. Palate is rich and lightly creamy. Flavor is subtly sweet on the front some of that is probably from the Rye as well with a resinous slightly piney finish a lingering bitterness is light and balances the malty front end. Loads of piney hops in the aftertaste, not much of the fruitiness in the front that I liked so much in the nose. Thoroughly enjoyable, but lacking a bit of balance that some maturity might give it. rubbishystuff (2538) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 This was really quite good. Big hops, piney and citrus, enough malty to back it up. Dry finish and spicy taste and finish from the rye. Serving: Bottle tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bomber shared. Pours an orange color with off soft white head with nice lacing. The aroma is like sticking your face in a pine tree and inhaling very slowly. But that’s not the only aroma. You get some grapefruit mix with other tropical fruits. The first taste was a subtle ness of bold hops and rye. Funny the aroma and flavor come across in two different ways. Both very good. The rye comes across the middle of the tongue. ThEn i spilled my glass. DAMN.

Bomber shared with friends. Big ole stickin’ hops in this bad boy. Right up in your face from the second you crack open the bottle. Nice floral hints with just a tad bit of citrus/grapefruit. Very enjoyable. StefanSD (2451) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2013
650 ml bottle courtesy of queenholly. Thanks Rebekah. Pours a cloudy orange-ish color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is medium in strength vegetables and cat piss. Cant say that I really dug the aroma too much. The taste, unlike the aroma, is a masterpiece--I get rye grains, apricots, melons, mild spices, oranges and perhaps some sweetened grapefruit. The palate is full and silky smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long with lingering spicy hops. Overall: Decent DIPA, a bit like Alpine Nelson on steroids.

Bomber thanks to queenholly, pours a cloudy copper/orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma is tropical, oranges, pineapple, with a nice balance of rye and hop spice. Taste of rye spice, sweet bready caramel malts, citrus, and bitter pine throughout. Really great aroma here! Very enjoyable. fidelis83 (2437) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Pours cloudy orange amber with a 3 finger, chunky off white head and high effervescence. Aroma is huge on citrus, tropical fruit and floral hops, some pine, biscuit, a little caramel and spiciness that could be hops, rye, or a combination of the two. Big tropical fruit, citrus, pine and spicy hops, biscuit, toast, cereal and twiggy pine. medium to heavy body, light carbonation, and a creamy to chewy feel. Fantastic stuff. arkurzynski (2427) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Deep golden color. Great hop presence in the nose with light tropical fruit, pungent grapefruit, and soft pine. Malt not to be outdone with a pronounced rye spice, caramel malt, and sweet honey biscuits. Flavor is solid grapefruit, citrus, mango with matching rye malt spice and caramel malt. Great palate that is sticky and thick, but yet, easy to drink. I like that the rye characteristics are fairly pronounced and not just an afterthought. A very solid brew.
