Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Three Floyds pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid finger of off white head which settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A very juicy and dank hop driven aroma with a scent of citrus fruit and pine resin. Upfront scent of citrus hops with some grapefruit, orange peel, mango, passion fruit, apricot, tangerine, and melon with some pineapple. Dank and earthy hop scent of pine resin, cannabis, and grass. Malt hints of caramel, grains, and cracker with some yeast. A really good juicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a very juicy and piney hop dominated taste with big notes of citrus fruit and pine. Ripe and juicy citrus hop notes of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, apricot, tangerine, passion fruit, and melon along with pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine resin and grass. Background malt notes of caramel, grains, and cracker along with some yeast. A really good juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and oily with a drying finish. Alcohol is hidden fairly well.

Overall: A really great Double IPA. Big citrus and pine flavor that is worthy of a great Grindcore band.

First had 6/5/16 at the brewery. This was the third brewery out of eight that I hit on my cross country trip with my brother. This was my favorite from them, it was bright, slightly juicy, floral, and all around great.

Doesn't mess around, it's on the extreme side of the IPA spectrum. One of the better tasting high abv ales from FFF, just wish it was available in a smaller format. Bomber was good to try once, not frequently.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass the same day it was bottled. Couldn't be more fresh. Pours a beautiful golden yellow with a huge head thato lingers and leaves nice lacing. Smells of pine, pot, and citrus. Dankey. The taste follows. Huge body and mouthfeel. Feels almost like a creamy stout with moderate carbonation. Over all, great IPA. One of the best for the style.
