I've had this beer multiple times from the bottle, both from the bottle and in a glass.

The beer smells of citrus with the nice bitterness of the hops. A nice citrus taste to start, with a nice (but not overly) bitter finish. The beer has a fairly thin mouthfeel, but that seems to work well for this beer.

The citrus mixes with the bitterness nicely and makes it a very easy drinking IPA - one of my favourites.

The bottle art is also unique and cool, if you care about that kind of stuff. I personally do.

I've just noticed this beer in NE recently, and it was only $7 for a 22oz (little steep!).
Comparing to other IPAs, a very subtle floral, hoppy, citrus nose. Initial wonderful hoppy
mouth feel, but the beauty of this one is how sweet and smooth the finish is. Ths is not an over-the-top hoppy bitter IPA, but matched and well balanced beer. I would definitely buy this beer again.

Super tart as you would expect. Strong citrus flavor. 6% ABV so not too strong in the alcohol department. Not something you would want every day but if you are in the mood for a an IPA with a bite this is a good one to try. The name really says it all Smashbomb.
