Poured from the bomber into my 22oz SA glass.
Poured a beautiful dark red/amber color with a pretty off white/slight tan head that clung to the sides of the glass.
Smell - This one I already picked up the aroma right after popping the cap on it, the nose on this is amazing! Pine/citrus/ robust hops come to the forefront, what a wonderful aroma.
Taste - the taste follows through with the nose, beautiful hop presence, but not as strong as in the nose...the malts balance this beer out quite nicely. A bit of bitterness in the finish to let you know the hops are there all the way to the end. Quite the wonderful beer.
Mouthfeel - this beer coats the palate nicely and the flavors linger long enough to let you ponder about this brew.
Overall - I really enjoyed this beer and I'll definitely have it again. This is a great example of a balance wet hop ipa. If you're looking for something that is more hop forward, you might be dissappointed but for what this beer is, it's wonderful.
