Bomber poured into Tulip.

A- Hazy yellow with a big three finger head, goes away somewhat quickly but this beast is 9%

S- WOW, this is a hoppy punch in the face, just what I was hoping for. Centennial dry hops and Simcoe hops. Somewhat grassy with some floral bitterness and citrus. Love at first smell.

T- Tastes like it smells, its a big hop bomb. Im sure theres some malt and alcohol tastes in here but its all masked by a glorious array of hops. Lots of citrus hops and some bitterness but it doesnt seem out of balance, Its not overwhelming. This is a hopheads beer, that's for sure.

M- Has a textured feel that lots of big IPA's tend to have. I think what im feeling is the hop haze. Nice carbonation that makes that big ball of hops come to life in my mouth. I was honestly surprised how easily I was able to suck down a glass. Its a big beer and should be treated as such.

O- I love this beer, I just dont love that I payed 12$ for a bomber. This will be a special occasion drinker for me assuming I am able to come by it again. Hop lovers, go and find one of these. One of the best Imperial IPA's I have had the pleasure of drinking. And like I said, its an easy to drink 9% beer, watch out, it caught me off guard

I had this on-tap at the Three Floyds brewpub for $5.

Pours a cloudy copper orange color with a minor head but great lacing. Has a mild scent of bitter hops. Rather bold and flavorful, even though it was rather hoppy it wasn't overly bitter. Crisp, clean, and refreshing. Nicely served in proper glassware and temperature I might add.

Beautiful hazy, golden-orange with a big, fluffy, soapy, sticky bright white head that leaves behind tons of lacing and great retention. Gorgeous DIPA. The nose explodes with massive hop aromas. Citrus such as fresh grapefruit, orange, and apricot. This is a serious fresh hop, pine, and citrus bomb. Great body. Seriously. So creamy and smooth. Feels fantastic and the flavors are absurd. This has so much complexity for being such a hop bomb. The IBUs are off the charts but the hop character is so enjoyable. There some booze, some really dry qualities, and a bit of cloying sweetness, but outside of that it's a flawless beer. Wow.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Pours a hazy deep orangish amer. 1-2finger off white head. Tons of lacing and retention.

S: Pine, resin, citrus (apricot) and a hint of malt sweetness.

T: Close to the nose. Hop forward with a bit of a bitterness the flows into a sweet citrus and resin. Finishes with a tiad bit of bitterness that lingers.

M: Medium body and carbonation.

O: Excellent IIPA. The bitterness balances out well with the citrus for a well rounded brew. Remember to drink fresh!

Got this in the Secret Santa 2010 BIF. 220z bottle...

A: A light golden honey color with a small white head that fades at a decent pace. Good.

S: Some nice sugary citrus grapefruit with some earthy bitterness in the middle. Some orange citrus on the backend. Good.

T: Some bitter orange peel and coriander with some grapefruit quickly followed in the middle. Some citrus sugary malt on the backend. Good.

M: A full bodied IPA with a great carbonation. A nice clean finish. Very good.

D: Goes down very easy.

All in all, this is a solid brew. Glad I got to try it. It is a very grapefruity IPA. A very overwhelming grapefruit flavor. If that's your thing, then definitely hunt this down, otherwise, try if you have access.
