Cloudy orange color with small head. Nice aroma of hops, delicate, citrusy. Dry, lean, toffeish, with strong bitterness, soft resins, and plenty of citrus fruits. This 1½ IPA is fresh and dangerously drinkable!
Nice west coast dbl ipa! Poured a nice hazy copper with a lingering off white head! Blasted by citrus hops in the nose really fools you as take a sip, and you run into a wall of bitterness! I really enjoyed this ipa! mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Solid West Coast IPA. Very hop forwarded; not much malt backbone. Pine notes primarily. A bit of resin. No grapefruit. Good. teamsale (273) - Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Bomber pours a cloudy beige with a two finger off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is primarily citrus and pine. Flavor is a wonderful malty citrus. This one is exceptionally well balanced. Ideal medium bitterness. The aftertaste couldn’t be much better. Thoroughly enjoyable. Alphadelic (2248) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Boom. A big, fresh, weedy aroma turning to juicy tangerine. Smooth with a mild bitterness amongst the sweetness of the malt. Very good stuff really. Warm in my belly.

May 2015 bottle hand delivered from Seattle. Opaque light brown with tan head. Citrus hop aroma with hints of booze. Bitter pine, light toffee caramel hop flavors. Finish is piney bitter and lingers. Not has heavy (malty) as some DIPAs, nice. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Big, malt-forward double IPA. Lots of caramel and sweet bread. Honey-like sweetness as well. Hops are balanced. Sugar-coated pine, sweet grass and honey-dipped flower petals. Tasty beer, though it drinks more like a barleywine than a double IPA. Tmoney99 (14604) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus and Simcoe aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy complex bittersweet finish of medium duration. This is a solid beer. Lagerboy (2221) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
Bomber. Mostly clear dirtier orange, off-white foam settles and breaks. Floral grapefruity c-malt aroma. Taste is mouth watering citrus grapefruit and a little too much sticky sweet caramel/toffee malt. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. Fresh and clean but hardly a double.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate citrus (orange and tangerine), light grapefruit, a touch of floral notes, and faint caramel. It pours a hazy dark orange with a two finger cream colored head that has good retention. There are a lot of sticky rings left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy citrus notes of orange and tangerine along with a light fruitiness. There is some light caramel in the middle. The finish has moderate grapefruit and floral hops. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, I generally don’t like caramel flavors in IIPAs, but the light caramel flavor in this one seems to work for me.
