Thanks to fisherman34 for sharing this bottle with me and rudge75. Bomber poured into a pint glass.

Pours a light unfiltered copper colour, medium carbonation, and a generous head. Good head retention that leaves a nice lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is very heady. Sweet, flowery, earthy, and a little spicy. There's a butterscotch malt character in there as well. Simply delicious aroma that leaves me wanting to smell for a while before I sip.

On first sip you definitely get the "hop bomb" character, grapefruit citrus predominates the hop profile, but there's a lovely grassy and earthy quality as well. Liquorice/anise flavour comes out of the mix, and a Hefty malt backbone that's toasted and biscuity with a little bit of sweet caramel, but not too sweet by any means. Mouthfeel is just mildly carbonated, medium bodied and dry. Slides down like water and I wanted more as soon as I finished my glass. Dangerously hidden alcohol makes this one a lot of fun. This is a great IPA and one I'm pleased to have finally tried. Cheers!
