bomber to snifter
Pours a very dark gold, mixed with many shades of dark red and orange. Mild carbonation, finger of head. Good lacing and retention
Smells of hops, pine, fruit, with a strong malty finish. Alcohol is present as well as some other floral notes. Not as strong as I was expecting for such wet hops, a bit surprised by the amount of malt
Taste is of very juicy hop, pine resins, grapefruit, grass, and citrus. A nice spice is present from the hops, and there's a little bit of alcohol. There is a faint malt back bone which is a sharp contrast to how well it was represented in the smell.
The feel is nice and wet, with a good tingle on the tongue, which is turned up a bit from the spice of the hop resin. Wet and juicy finish leaving you wanting more
Over all a well done beer with a unique emphasis on the freshness of the hop, and kudos to how quickly it has to be made. Definitely prefer this one over the southern hemisphere harvest, will get again soon when and if my city gets any. Solid ipa, good idea- great execution. Sierra Nevada ftw
