One of the best double IPA’s ive had. I’d say it is just a hair better than the Dogfish 90 Minute.
Clear medium orange color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, off-white head.
HOPs: floral, citrus. But there is a slight sweet taste there that i enjoy. Great Carbonation. The aftertaste is enjoyable and lasting, not overly bitter.

Updates:
6-6-15 - December 2013 brew poured from bomber into my FW imperial pint glass after a day of throwing mulch. Awesome, especially after a long day of manual labor. This double is one of the best. Can't wait for my next update.

I love this beer. I made my way out to Philly, and picked up a 4 pack at a Wegman's in Downingtown.

The beer has a nice golden, orangish color. I didn't get too much in the way of head or lacing on it. It had a sweet hoppy smell, and a very well balanced taste. It's a subtle DIPA; overall I'd say it's one of my favorites.
