A: Ice tea coloring with a slight, bready textured peanut shell toned head that was moderately retaining. Healthy carbonation factor within, with a sticky, thin, lace band.

S: Aroma was sticky pine resins, flowery dry citrus, wet grapefruit, with background nuances of sweetly toasted malt. Decent level of awareness.

T: Toasted malt and dry citrus with juicy grapefruit and sticky pine upfront. Spicy hops, dry mango and tropical fruit hints. Glimpses of toasted sweetness, figs, tangerines-orange spiciness and apple-caramel. Alcohol spiciness of cinnamon and tarragon.

M: Sticky hop resins, sticky malt with a fairly sharp bite of carbonation. Very good malt depth, dry, spicy bite of hops off the tongue.

O: Overall big sticky malt body and sticky hop resins and as good as advertised. A very good mixture of juicy hops, sweet malt, dry hopping and alcohol spiciness. Incredible drinkability, the 10% abv is nearly non-detectable behind the big malt backing and hops and adds a nice deal of spiciness. A bomber goes way to quickly, a worthy repeat anytime and one i wish i had access to. Received as xmas present, the price + shipping cost is worth the endeavor.

Too malty should be more of an American strong ale

Very solid DIPA. Explodes with pine both on the nose and pallet.

Phenominal beer. The hype on it was on point. It's a go to double IPA. Glad it's local, got mine at seagate liquor in Hb. They have over 400 craft caguamas.

Poured bomber into Lost Abbey Teku no date on bottle

A-Pours a deep copper orange with a two finger off white head. Great lacing.

S-Aroma is of pine, grapefruit, sweet malts, caramel, and some tropical hops.

T-Taste is very similar to the aroma but has a bit more hops and caramel.

M-Mouthfeel has a medium to full body. At the beginning it's slightly creamy and finishes slightly dry. Has great carbonation.

O-Overall a great DIPA, I enjoy the balance of the hops and malt. I would definetly get one again.
