A- clear amber with thick white head that dissapates into a thin coating on top of the beer.

S- big citrus aroma slight pine. lots of tropical fruits. Smells absolutely amazing!

T- more pine on the taste than the smell. Still lots of tropical fruits and a slight bready flavor. Very nice.

M- medium light body with good amount of carbonation for the style.

O- this is a great example of a double IPA. I want more of this! im kind of sad I shared half the bottle with my wife! :-)

A: Very clear, very golden beer with a small amount of white head.

S: This has a GREAT smell. Smells like a beer I am going to love! A strong citrus hop smell with the smell of oranges and grapefruit. I love smelling hops just naturally and this beer smells like pure hops and I love it!

T: Tastes almost as good as it smells. I get the initial bitter citrus hoppy flavor followed by a sweeter malt taste at the initial finish of the beer. It has a VERY bitter finish that lingers in my throat and tongue for a good 2 minutes.

M: Good mouthfeel. LIght to medium thickness and medium carbonated.

O: overall, wonderful beer! Perfect blend of maltiness and hoppy as well as a great finish leaving me wanting more!

A – Really nice clear sunrise yellow with a perfect 2 bright white head. Head retention was pretty good but did eventually fade to a ring of white bubbles around the glass. Really nice lacing was seen.

S – Nice piney resinous hop aroma with some citrus mixed in for good measure.

T – Nice citrus / grapefruit taste with hints of pine. A very mild malt sweetness comes through on the backside but it is faint the hops take the front seat on this one.

M – Very smooth very mild bitterness. Carbonation was perfect just the slightest CO2 bite. Nice and dry finish.

O – This is a very solid double IPA, really nice and smooth and isn’t all hyped up like some others. Fairly easy to find in PA and MD which makes it even more attractive.

Picked up a bomber at Brilbecks in Syracuse. Poured clear gold with a tall white head. The aroma has a perfumey pine resin with a light earthy undertone like lemon seeds. The flavor follows with a building a sweet (at first) grapefruit hit which dries out with floral notes and that same pine resin. I love that this beer is really no heavier than a normal IPA. The hops don't get lost in the malt and the sugar doesn't bog you down. Great DIPA.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A: Somewhat hazy bright orange. Rocky off-white head with large bubbles. Nice lacing.

S: Huge citrus nose. Slight peppery spiciness, soft malt.

T: Quick wave of bready malt with cleansing alcohol, followed by sweet citrus hop above more surging crackery malt. Some mild juicy papaya. Satisfying, peppery bitterness mixed with sweet alcohol lingers in the finish.

M: Medium bodied.

O: The strength of the alcohol is more part of the statement this beer makes, rather than something to be hidden. That being said, it doesn’t distract from the top-notch hop profile, especially in the nose.

Poured from bomber bottle into tulip glass

Amber color with huge, creamy 3 finger head with all of retention and lacing around the glass.

Very bready aroma with huge pine, floral presence with some fruit but not sweet. smells awesome.

Big backbone. Alot of malt well balanced with west coast style hops but balanced. Bitter kick lasts long after the initial taste. No mistake on the imperial label. Missing some of the complex citrus flavor.

Alot of effervescence, more than I have noticed for similar styles. Feels very creamy and lively.

Awesome beer and reasonably priced as well. Hop heads rejoice and buy more than 1 bottle. A quality standby.
