Appearance - Poured a deep coppery orange into a tulip glass, with a decent head.
Smell - Somewhat faint, not as fruity as other beers I've had but still recognizably citrusy.
Taste - The 77 IBUs and fresh hop/pine flavors really come through, more so than I expected with such a light odor. Quite pleasant overall.
Mouthfeel - Very smooth with light carbonation, almost too light. At first it tasted a little watery, but that wateriness is less noticeable as it warms up.
Overall - Very good beer, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. Well balanced and overall a pleasant experience! An excellent example of a classic India Pale Ale!

A - Nice big white head, slow to leave, lots of cling. Bronze orange, a little tiny bit of red or brown in the mix for color.
S - Not much smell at all. Light hops come out, but so does kinda wet paper.
T - Fruity, nice hop mix. Malt is very light and hops are light, but a little stronger than the malt.
M - A little creamy, actually, good carbonation, balance finishes towards the hops.
D - Ok beer. Good to try. Just not a stand out, imo.

Hop bomb. Poured slightly chilled with gigantic, foamy, frothy, cream-colored head that lasts all the way down and lots of clingy lace. Color is a nice, clear amber with loads of bubble trails. Aroma is a blend of hop, barnyard, yeast, malt. Flavor is totally dominated by hop; very bitter with a little malt coming at the end. Carbonation is ok, but body is confused by the intense bitter. Thank goodness for that smidgen of malt. Finish is like flavor, super long, and off flavors courtesy of hop. Also a little boozy.
