Finally got around to trying this since it was so popular and I wanted to see what the hype was about. After downing the bomber, it's obvious that this stands out from the pack when it comes to IPA's. Not only is the alcohol barely detectable, but the flavors meld wonderfully together and this is one of the most easily enjoyable examples of the style that I've ever had.

I loved the pour and look of this beer - it shone beautifully with a bright copper hue and had a head that just wouldn't quit, to the point where it clung on the edge of my glass rather than dissipate away. The aroma was nice but not terribly strong and the taste was a great combination of mango, tangerine, and apricot. The mouthfeel was quite oily with the feel and sweetness of honey underneath the easygoing tropical fruits. Just a hint of metallic hops was present in the aftertaste, but everything meshed together so well that the presence of them didn't seem out of place.

This has a high alcohol profile to it but this beer is up for the task of being aggressive without being overbearing. It's so rare to find Double IPA that isn't a hop bomb but this certainly fir that bill and it's rare that I find a Bomber that I can't wait to buy and down by myself once again. There's no doubt that this fit that bill and for anyone who loves Nugget Nectar, a SN big bottle, or any of the Green Flash brews, this should be on his or her must-try list. Highly recommended!
