My favorite beer.
Poured from bomber to pint glass, enjoy by 12/17 date

Pours a golden copper with a mild cloud in the middle. A finger and a half of head, amazing retention and lacing down the side of the glass. Mild carbonation, a very sexy dipa

Aroma consists of hops, grapefruit, citrus and a light malt backbone. Alcohol is present, along with some earthy floral notes as well. Terrific smelling brew

Taste is foremost and upfront, hops hops hops. Grape fruit, tropical fruit, and sweet bready malts shine through. Everything is flawlessly represented and blends together perfectly.

Mouth feel is as consistent as the other elements, giving you a strong bitter sensation following a nice bitter sting, leaving the palate decimated and 'ruined.' Spikes to the roof of the mouth, extremely dry finish

Overall this beer leaves your mouth desensitized and raw, wanting more and more. A hydrogen hop bomb that doesn't disappoint, and deserves every great score it's gotten. Is and will continue to be a staple in my fridge.
