5/5  rDev +16.6%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

AT 11.25%, Im reviewing this compared to other 11%+ "triple" IPA's. These beers should really not be in the same category as double IPA's as beers in the 7% range and beers in the 11-12% range are very different. That being said...

A: Hazy, orange with thick white head and excellent lacing. Were off to a very good start.

S: Mango, Papaya, Guava, Grapefruit, Meyer Lemon, Pine, even some Sage. Some toasty caremalized sugar but not too much. Some alcohol of course.

T: Again its all tropical fruits and citrus and redwood forests here....alcohol is there but nicely balanced with the hops and malt backbone. Very, very good. I could drink 2 bombers in a row, no problem.

M: Mouthfeel is full and rich but not too syrupy like some over the top triple IPAs.

Besides PTYounger, this is the best "triple" Ive had.

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.
