From a bomber this beer pours a hazy amber-orange, very similar to the standard Stone IPA. Nice and sticky, off-white head. Huge aroma of floral hops, medicinal notes, and some alcohol.
This is a very citrusy, dry and bitter beer, but not overpowering like some other imperial IPAs. There's some biscuity malt, but this thing is all hops. The mouthfeel is incredible, very smooth and resinous, with low carbonation, which I love. Very lemony and puckering overall, but not too heavy and pretty drinkable. Alcohol is somewhat apparent. Enormously bitter aftertaste. Yep, this bomber ruined my palate for anything else the rest of the night. Awesome.
