22 ounce bomber bottled 5/10/2017 and poured into a 3 Floyds pint glass and consumed on 5/17/2017.

Appearance: Thick half inch white foam head forming spider webs as the head retreats. The beer itself pours a very nice hazy golden orange color.

Nose: Light intensity citrus and pineapple.

Taste: This is a delicous double IPA. Fresh pineapple and mango notes. Hides the high ABV very well.

Mouthfeel: Medium viscosity. Smooth.

Overall: This is a solid Imperial IPA. Every Dark Lord season I pick up at least one bottle. Highly recommend to anyone who hasn't tried this before.

Pours a clouded orange with two and a half fingers of off-white head that retains extremely well. Just a little lacing left behind. Aroma is pine, resin, citrus, and lemongrass. Extremely hoppy, but well developed. Flavor profile is resin, pine, citrus, lemongrass, and herbal. Lots and lots of hop notes, which include a discernible bitterness. Bready biscuit malts provide some support. Mouth feel is medium-thick, with a filling, grainy texture. Overall, a huge DIPA with loads and loads of hop notes. Not close to bitter free, but still well executed.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 22oz bottle.

Finally got my hands on a bomber. 22oz bottle. Cannot read the date but I am assuming it is relatively fresh as my beer store buddy just got it in today.

Dark orange-1 finger of head. Looks good.

Smell is well...good but weak. Mango, tropical fruits, sweet aromas.

Wow-this is quite malt forward and pretty sweet tasting. Not what I expected. Hops are there but the malt overpowers. Alchohol goes completely unoticed.

Mouthfeel is soft and pleasing. Very smooth.

I am not sure what to say. Different strokes for different folks I guess. This has a pleasant hop profile but the malts overwhelm and the sweetness builds. Glad I got to try but I would take a fresh Panzer Wolf over this any day.

Appearance - Pours deep golden color with nice thick white head. Streaky white lacing down the glass.

Aroma - Just tons of tropical aromas mango, pineapple, orange just a slight hint of alcohol and pine with a touch of sweetness.

Taste - Really great flavors again very tropical fruit forward. Mango, pineapple and grapefruit, a little bitterness on the back end and just the slightest sign of the alcohol.

Feel - medium bodied well carbonated no heat just a touch of dryness.

Overall - An amazing beer, not sure how they hide the alcohol but it works. Great tropical flavors as well.
