Bottle poured a dark orange amber color with a one finger white head. Aroma has resins, sweet malt, some citrus rind, and some wet herbs. Mouth feel is hefty with medium low carbonation. Flavor brings a fair bit of bitterness, wet stringy hops, citrus rind, and plenty of sweet malt. Really thick and crushing with too much bitterness for my taste.

Pours hazy amber with a thin white head. Smells of juicy fruit, grapefruit, melons, some underlying spiciness. Tastes of sweet citrus, melon, some peppery splashes with some phenolic notes on the finish. Bomber. abcfan (920) - New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2013
Well done. Pours orange / yellow with a creamy off white head. Aroma is sweet malts and floral hops with a touch of honey. Taste is mostly sweet, with an alcohol burn finish, which is a bit hot. Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle. Taste is grapefruit, pine needles and lemon peel, with a nice boozy finish. Imaena (2327) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - MAR 3, 2013
22 oz Bomber. Big hoppy ipa with lots going on. Maybe a little too much.

Trade from Phatdog1 - thanks! Hazy reddish orange, thin head. faint aroma of citrus, cinnamon, and some other spices. Flavor is woody hops, fairly sweet caramel, and Some fruity notes. BB 02/08/2013, drank on 02/24/2013, so the hops may have faded a bit. Still good, though. seth_lfod (325) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Lawson’s tulip. Opaque orange/amber in color with a small white head from a gentle pour. Smells of grapefruit, sweet malts, a bit of butterscotch, and slight orange peel. Taste is grapefruit up front followed by some resin and pine. Well balanced with a slight malt backbone. Alcohol is well hidden. This is an enjoyable local DIPA. Would buy again for $6. Slipstream (2626) - USA - FEB 17, 2013
A fine, fluffy head atop a dark gold-tan pour. The aroma is rich and penetrating, with pine and floral notes. The taste is likewise full of hops, but it is a soft take on an imperial IPA - there are flavors of bee pollen, English-style hops, wildflowers, and a little yeast. Real good. jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a three-finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Crystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is grapefruit hops, flavor is an improvement over the 2009 brewing, some grapefruit less bitterness, more caramel, higher ABV helps (7.5 vs 8.5%). $6.45 for a 22oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2013
