A: Nice color, couple fingers of nice fluffy white head. Decent lacing considering the level of hop oils. Cloudy with lots of floaters, especially the second half of the bomber.
S: Pine sap and spicy pepperiness smack you in the face. It smells like a a big pile of hops. There are also some alcohol esters and actually a decent aroma of biscuit-like malt.
T: Hops dominate. Bitter, pine, lime zest, pepper. Just tons of hops. If you don't like hops, avoid this beer.
M&D: This beer attacks the palate, very bitter. Medium body. The bitter aftertaste lingers for a while. This beer is definitely one and done.
While not a bad beer, there are definitely better DIPAs out there. I am glad I tried it but will not be seeking it out again. It is just too extreme, too bitter, to be anything more than a novelty beer.
