Bomber thanks to Chris. Clear gold with a light head. Fruity, spicy hops. Clean IPA. Not getting any Belgian aspects at all.

Live a Rich Life pours a strawberry amber, orange with a thick frothy beige head that lasts a good while. The aroma is dark fruit, floral, caramel and bread. The flavor is dark fruit, floral, caramel and bread. Interesting though that the Belgian element is more distinguished in the aroma than the flavor. Overall this is a solid beer.

The IIPA is much more prominent than the "Belgian" part. Aroma isn’t strong, but has a nice smooth citrus hop character. Incredibly well balanced beer, with citrus hops and a bit of syrupy sweetness. None of the flavors are as intense as in many other IIPAs, but they are very pleasant. Very easy to drink.

c/o NeoHippie! Thanks again my friend Aroma - hops are oily and bulked out! West Coast is well represented from Chinook, Tomahawk, and Centennial hops. Appearance - amber body color; clean and clear liquid; 2" beige-yellowish rocky head; lovely lace Taste - oily West Coast hops with some caramel malts Palate - body is medium; texture is thick, slick, and oily; carbonation is lively; finish is cloying and bitter, nearly astringent

Another fine offering. Good and hoppy and smooth. A little lacking in aroma but really solid.

Chudwick (3332) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bomber into a snifter - nose is alpha. Pretty yeasty for a DIPA. Don’t really know what to think of it. Odd

wchesser (2122) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2014
From a trade. Deep orange. Nose of light grapefruit. Fairly malty, balanced, nice citrus and some pine. Solid, but not their best stuff. Not much belgian anything here, nor imperial IPA-ness even.

Fucking solid. I am into cursing on ratebeer lately, so you can deal with it. Good times here in drinking.

Bomber from lake beer fridge via Antioch Liquors. Pours rich orange with 1 finger head. Nose is a mix of grapefruit and pine....bold initial taste....lingers well. Excellent.
