It's a five (5). You like IPAs? Buy one. Enough said.

Bomber poured into a Belgian style tulip glass.

Appearance: Looks really good in the glass, poured kind of hazy, but cleared, very bright white head, nice lacing, some bubble stream. This the beer's strength.

Aroma: Big hop, citrusy aromas on the nose, smells really good.

Taste: Compared to the nose the taste is not as citrusy. I was expecting more from the taste but it's a letdown. A small hop citrusy flavor, then some malt, bitterness finishes it up.

Overall: After smelling the nose I was awaiting a big juicy citrusy hop bomb but all I got was a minor juicy citrusy hop flavor, some malt and bitterness. Really disappointed in the flavor but then again this could be an old bottle as I don't see any dates on it. I've had IIPAs that have lost their hop flavors and I think this bottle might be old.

This beer is as advertised - it has crazy amounts of hop bitterness. It needed the malt balance of a double IPA in order to prevent your mouth from completely closing shut at the astringency of the extreme hop profile. I tend not to rate the 90+ IBU beers quite as highly as Ba's gen pop and this one is no exception.
