DOB 01/10/12 - so has aged longer than it should have - shame on me for not treating a DIPA of this caliber properly. Bomber pours a luminescent pumpkin orange colour - hazy but very visually appealing. Reasonable head and lacing that lingers down the glass.
Aroma has faded, leaving only stilted hops and caramelized malts. The flavour has held up much better, with the initial malted sweetness transitioning into a full hop bitterness - citrus and tropical fruits and a delightful puckering that lingers. The 9.5% ABV is very well hidden, with only a hint of warmth in the finish.
Definitely a well brewed DIPA and I wish I hadn't "cellared" it by mistake.
