look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Heavily hop hazed golden yellow with a modest white head that recedes to a pool and retains well. Some bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. One of the lighter IPAs I've seen.
S: I'm recovering from an upper respiratory infection so my nose isn't quite up to the job but I'm picking up some spicy pine notes with a bit of bitterness. it smells the part.
T: Mellow sweetness builds to some pine flavors and a nice spice kick. Plenty of bitterness on the swallow that lingers for a time with a bit of residual sweetness. On the swallow there is also a hint of grape fruit flavor. It has balance and a nice hop kick so it can walk the walk.
M: slick and full bodied with adequate carbonation
D: Very high. Polishing off this bomber will be a pleasure.
Overall: A solid representation of the style from the BrewDog and I'm happy it made its way into my beer purchase but wish I would have drank it a bit sooner.
