4.28/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz bomber poured into a large snifter. Bottle courtesy of 603BeerMe, thanks Clark!

A - Pours a deceivingly pale yellow, almost American Adjunct straw. Probably only a few shades away from clear. However, it does build a huge, pillowy, snow-white 2.5-fingered head. Very good retention and amazing lacing. Absolutely beautiful lacing and it clings on and doesn't move.

S - Smell is definitely more fruit oriented than the normal pine forest smell of other IPAs. There is an underlying nose of pine, but upfront is all orange, grapefruit, mango, and a bit of banana. The bitterness almost exudes from this beer and there is little to none alcohol presence in the aroma. Refreshing; not in the way of a more typical IPA where it's like a wet pine, but in a more tropical and airy way.

T - The taste takes this fruit aspect of the nose and intensifies it. The entire first half of the beer is all grapefruit and especially mango, orange, and some pineapple, which is a welcome change in a style that is full of cookie-cutter IPAs. As in the nose, only slight slight appearances from the pine side of the hops and its all fruit. The thing I keep going back to is the emphasis on mango and orange, which really comes together great. Unfortunately, the bottle I got has a date October 28, 2010, which I can only assume is the Best By date as I received the bottle before then, so I think this beer can be even that much better fresh. On a positive note, the diminished hops allow the hops to really smooth out the overall feel of this beer.

M - Mouthfeel is medium bodied with high carbonation. It is still a bit sticky and leaves a moderate coating on the mouth which kind of detracts. Finish is relatively short with a lasting hop bitterness.

D - Drinkability is high. It may be the fact that this is a bit dated, but I don't feel that the hops really dominate this beer and the silky smooth malts help round this beer out. It's definitely not a hop bomb, and it's not overly bitter besides the residual bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Alcohol is well-hidden, and it was no problem at all to finish this bomber solo.
