Had out of a bomber. I think that is the only way it is bottled
A deep Red/Brown color with a good 2 finger not quite white head.
The smell is dominated by some great hops. Earthy/Citrus/Pine balanced perfectly with some caramel and grainy malts
A pine grapefruit gets you in the beginning but as it finishes the caramel toasty malts shine through but just enough to make the citrus hop flavor really stand out for the aftertaste. For how heavy (ABV) it is I want to keep sipping.
Beautiful color/aroma/flavor and finish.
Someone bought this as a gift for me about 5 years ago. It was one of the first really hoppy strong ales I had tried. My appreciation for it has only grown tremendously over those 5 years.
