Nice beer. Not overly hoppy and still smooth. Would do again.

I'm I the only one who thinks this smells skunky like a Euro lager? I would have bet money there was a Heineken or Lowenbrau in the glass. Just wondered if this is normal. Taste a lot better than the aroma would suggest. Hops seem pretty muted though. Thinking an old bottle.

Ok, so I am going to probably get slammed for saying this but here goes. This beer was awful. Heard all the hype. I don't know, maybe I got a bad bomber? The taste was so bad I spilled this out! Not even in the same league as other American DIPA's. In my opinion, American DIPA's rank in this order. 1. Heady Topper (duh). 2. Lawson's Double Sip of Sunshine. 3. Russian River Pliny the Elder. 4. Neshaminy Creek's The Hops of Things to Come. 5. Ballast Point Sculpin. Skip this. If you can get your hands on any of the others I listed, get it. Cheers!

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.
