Bomber dated 5/5/14 poured into teku

A: an electric, radiant golden orange; looks great

S: lots of sticky pine resin; candied tropical citrus peel; mangos, pineapple, and apricots; the aromas are off-the-wall intense and incredible. I wanna drink that smell

T: i got more of the tropical fruits than citrus upfront, followed by a nice light sweetness, and ending with a crisp, refreshing shot of dry bitterness; the 100 ibus are all over the place; the taste was little disappointing only because of how great the nose is

M: lightly syrupy on the tongue, but nice carbonation keeps things nice and refreshing

O: it's scary how crushable this beer is; the ABV is completely hidden. Fantastic aroma, nice mouthfeel, and great flavor.

A - Dark orange, cloudy, with a moderate white head, some mild lacing.

S - Big fruit notes, grapefruit and mango, zest and flesh, but also some mild malt sweetness, and an undercurrent of pine. As the beer warms, moves to a stronger alcohol note and heavier pine, but the fruit is still a major player.

T - Strong fruit, like the nose, but more heavily citrus, with lemon along with the grapefruit, fading into the malt hit in the middle, with the taste of spun sugar mingling with the ongoing citrus, with pine notes and a big bitter wallop in the close.

M - Drying is moderate, and resin survives long after the last swig.

O - Perhaps not quite as brutal as the name and artwork suggest, but still a strong, uncompromising foray into the heart of hopness. A delicious DIPA.

No bottling date, poured into a tulip

A- pours a hazy dark orange color with bright golden hues around the edge of the glass, small foamy white head that reduces to a small layer, good retention and short lasting lace, lots of floaties

S- predominately fruity hop notes up front with an emphasis on cantaloupe, mango and citrus zest. Light grassy notes transitions into a bready malt backbone, a bit of alcohol on the back end

T- big mix of fruity and grassy hops up front with flavors of citrus, mango and guava. Bready and sweet malt kicks in mid-palate, eventually leading to more hops on the finish with piney notes and a bit of alcohol

M- medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel leads to a smooth and slightly warming dry finish, long hop linger

O- A solid offering, I prefer Dreadnaught but wouldn't pass this up if given the opportunity to try it again
