4.39/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

22oz bottle dated 3/5/13 from the Jug Shop, SF.

Pours clear gold with a slight chill haze and a two inch white head after a bit of a stretch-pour. The remaining lacework appears to be from the initial head retreat and not after.

Aromatics are pungently filled with tropical fruit. Mango, apricot, pear, tangerine, and melon.

Medium bodied and light on the palate given the high ABV.

Bright tropical fruit with a boozy backbone start the palate. Intense amounts of fruity, citrusy hops with a firm bitterness. Malt level is low.

Finishes pretty dry with lingering fruit and warming alcohol.

Many have attempted a triple IPA, but few have pulled it off without the beer tasting like a barleywine. This one in fact pulls it off. Great beer.

4.24/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

The beer is a murky yellow / orange with a soapy white head. Aromas of dank hops, resin, alcohol, pine. Sticky and sweet. Like sucking on a hopsicle. See what I did there? Aww yeah. Full bodied and palate coating. Certainly hop forward, but there is definitely a strong malt bill and noticeably above 10% abv. Full flavored. One could get f'd up right quick sippin' on Simtra. Tasty.

Bomber > Tulip Glass

A - Slightly hazed gold with a finger of fizzy white head, medium lacing.
S - Where's the aroma? I mean really, this literally just smells like alcohol with an acrid hop smell. Pine and some lemon zest, astringent for sure.
T - 131 IBU's is stupid, and the bitterness attests to that, sweet boozy malt, caramel, citrus.
M - Bitter chewy clingy thick and full, lots of burn.
O - After seeing everyone rant and rave on this beer, its a massive let down, hop booze in the worst form.
