Bottle to pint glass reveals the darker, rich bronze body with very mild, active carbonation. The head is on the smaller side with very good retention that will fade back into the glass eventually. The smell is loaded with the freshest hops, reminding me of an imperial IPA, but milder. The taste is exceptional and blended perfectly. This will satisfy both hop-heads and those that are not as it has tons of hops but lacks the biting bitterness of most beers that are this well-hopped. It's amazing how this beer can be so robust yet mild at the same time. A bit heavier and creamier in the mouth than most IPA's with a good balance of carbonation, hops, and the other elements. The mildness and lack of a bitter smack-in-the-face leaves this quite drinkable. Okay, very drinkable. I'll have to snag another bomber of this.
