Poured from bomber into dimple glass mug. Pours a cloudy dark orange color with thick, sustaining off-white head. Aroma has resiny fruit tones of tangerine, orange, floral, biscuit, with a rich, sweet sap-like aspect. Sweet and hoppy flavor profile with less nectary, with a soily feel, and a fruity, leafy hop profile. Full bodied, thick, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Overall, an excellent DIPA from the 2010 Small Brewery of the Year!

Poured from the tap a nice medium golden color, with a decent, cloudy white cap of foam. Good citrusy hop aromas right up front, grapefruit, maybe lemon. On the palate, I get a little bit of that citrusy hop character, along with some caramel, and a good bitter finish.

Bomber served cold into a pint class.

Seven Seas (which I had at the Dry Docks brewery when it was called 7 Cs) is a very hazy copper orange color. The head is short-lived but the lacing is substantial.

Aroma is super hoppy and so full of citrus.

Flavor is excellent. It must be the most sweet-citrus double IPA I can remember having. Every type seems to be represented: lemons, oranges, grapefruit, and lime. A honey sweetness is perfectly judged. There's evenly some resiny pine. A little something for everyone.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with perfect carbonation. The balance is great for the style. Plenty of sweetness to counter-act the hops. Easily the most drinkable DIPA I've ever had.

Overall an outstanding DIPA. It's probably one of the best I've ever had. Seek this one out!

22 oz bottle split with the Steep after another golf related meltdown. Why must all fairways here slope from left to right? Regardless, a good afternoon.

Cloudy orange with some spotted lacing.

Brewed with 7 "C" hops. Baby aspirin, soap, and muddled citrus.

Taste pops brighter than the nose. Juicy citrus fruit, minimal bitterness, baby aspirin on the finish.

Very smooth, somewhat sweet and tempered but in a good way.

Nice beer...neither over the top nor overly sweet.

On tap at Falling Rock In Denver. Clear copper with a pretty standard inch of foam that holds on the whole time. Classic DIPA flavor profile - herbal, dank, resinous, pine, and citrus rind. A nice subtle caramel and grain balances just enough. Right down the heart of the plate for the style.
