22 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

Slighty hazy straw color with a finger or two of slighty-off-white head. Barely leaves any lacing on the side of the glass - my favorite part of the look of an IPA.

Smell is strongly hoppy, with a hint of honey and malt.

This is definitely a hop bomb, but there's enough malt to keep it grounded. It may come to 100 IBU when measured, but it doesn't taste quite that high.

Lightly carbonated, medium body. Despite the bitterness, doesn't finish with much astringency. Alcohol is light for 9%.

I wasn't convinced at first, but this really grew on me. Many thanks to Willseph for the brew!

Thanks to BFro (Ben) for sending me this along with the Zombie Dust.

I poured the cellar temperature bomber into my Dogfish Head snifter. The beer was orage with white head and solid lacing.

Initially all I could smell was hops but after a few minutes in the glass the white wine and apricot came through. Towards the end the white wine, hops and fusel alcohol really came through.

Heavy citrus and hop taste. The white wine and alcohol really come through in the taste as it warms and the hops blend into the other flavors.

Good carbonation and mouth feel.

I think this beer very much deserves its rating on this website. It is a very good IIPA but since this is my favorite beer category it doesn't come close to the best.

I bought this at Capitol Liquors in downtown Indy on a recent vacation. By the way, if you are in town, go there....

The smell of the brew is nose is not in tune enough to tell you the fruits or whatever, but it just smells like a good strong brew. Taste-wise, the brew starts off nice and strong and then kinda mellows out over time. You can defintely taste the punch behind it, but it is a great tasting Imperial.

A great brew. I am happy I bought a couple more. A bit pricey for a bomber, but well worth it for those special occasions when you want something good.
