Poured from the bottle at a tasting into a snifter glass. Much thanks to northstar23. From notes.

Pale apricot to lemon yellow body. Quite light but not getting straw color there. Pale white top and collar, with a slightly cloudy body.

Very impressive nose. Creamy notes of vanilla and peach. Mushed and rotten mango, and holy crap this thing smells like durian fruit. This is dam scary here, this sort of funky earth fruit thing and must. Ugh... insane, very impressive and unique.

Palate manages to calm down a bit, which is probably a good thing. Fruit angle comes out like a big punch mix, and slightly sweet in the mid palate on the hop angle. Some nice apricot warmth comes out of this, with a good controlled almost silky palate. Controlled warmth, definitely big ipa territory but surprisingly not hot or too boozy.

Overall just a wild fruit component to this and a big surprise. Very unique IPA would love to have a bottle of this again someday.

I think this beer is underrated. Not that I am biased, but maybe I am. I have been to the brewpub numerous times, I like Green Man.

Appearance: Hazy bronze with a nice head retention that just sits there and stays.

Smell: Floral, hoppy, resinous and dank. Some Pine but not as much as others. Some alcohol is detected in the aroma.

Taste: Very nicely balance. A full flavor, tropical fruits, earthy dried fruits present, some piney bitterness, but not overwhelming. Malt sweetness is definitely there, but far from cloying, well balanced.

Overall: I loved this beer and found a great deal on it. I would buy it again. Even though it is a bit pricey but the bomber is larger than the standard 22 oz.
