22 oz. Bomber

Pours a very nice very slightly cloudy dark golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which leaves some very nice thick/creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with a slight malt note, very nice citrus/pine notes. The taste is very nice hoppy, slightly malty, very nice citrus/pine notes. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a very nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very tasty DIPA. Would buy again. Recommended!

Drinking this fresh as it was just released again here in Chicago. Out of a teku. Bright hop aromas, with some moderate sweetness. Taste is the same with more sweetness, with big juicy hop flavor. This is a smooth 10 percenter, and hides it pretty well. Mouthfeel and ever so slight burn hints at its imperial strength. Highly recommended if you see it fresh.

Bursting with fruits and bitterness, plush but sharp-edged and hoppy. Real subtle 10% abv sneaks in with blast of hops. Solid caramel-like malt base provides just enough sweetness to round off any rough edges.

22oz bottle $9.99. Look sliek a typical DIPA, orange, good head. Aroma is weird and sweet like a dessert. Flavor was sickly sweet, reminded me of pound-cake or something. Myself and two others found this undrinkable and poured it right down the drain.

pours a slightly hazy Amber/orange, foamy white head that retains well. smell is piney but somewhat sweet, like honey. lots of sweet heavy malt on the nose, no hops apparent aside from the pine. taste is very sweet and boozy, hop-resinous and sticky, not picking up any fruity/citrusy/tropical notes whatsoever from the hops. this is actually reminiscent of apple juice that has started to turn bad. also getting a tinny/metallic taste. mouthfeel is actually pretty good, cuts the thick texture down. this beer was less than decent, I hope it's not like the rest of their beers that I'm eager to try, wouldnt get this one again.

Another double IPA from my favorite brewery, and another home run from them. Pours cloudy tan/orange/gold. Healthy lacing. Big hops on the nose. Juicy and bitter, slight malt in the background. Mouth filling, flavorful, super tasty. Missing the metallic tang prevalent in Ninja vs Unicorn and the single hop Ninja series, but that actually helps. Highly recommend.
