Bomber to hfs sniffer

A: golden honey colored very hoppy looking small tan head that lingers for a awhile

S: smells like the flora fresh hops there is also a slight hints of malt

T: light hoppy flavor that turns to the bitterness of the malt quickly then balencess out for a nice crisp flavor a great single ipa

M: smooth and light goes down easily has a creamy texture while still being thin enough to drink

O: this is a really solid floral ipa that is true to style. It's not the most flavor I have ever has but it's delicious and tasty even with a little too much malt.

Big thanks to Dat for hooking up the VT goodness (and the Lawson's glass to go along with this brew!). enjoyed from the lawson's sniftery tulip.

a - brew poured a really murky orange with a thin off white ipa head that fizzled away relatively quick. swirling the glass brought things back to life for a moment, but mostly there was a ring of foamy head on the surface of the glass with mild bubbling. lacing was spotty and stringy.

s - nice citric smell, not very in your face. some grapefruit, some mango, some peach even but far from sticky and sweaty and piney. crisp. nice, but not a hop extreme smell.

t - much like the nose, not a hop explosion but some strong bitterness on the finish. the hops are more bittering than piney. fruity flavoring with bitterness.

m - medium bodied. crisp and refreshing. bitter finish.

o - overall a nice offering from a brewery that makes incredible ipas. not their best, but good none-the-less and always nice to check out a new hop variety. i prefer more of a citric burst and dankness in my IPAs whereas this one has a really subtle and balanced hop flavoring with a decent slap of bitterness. the thing that stands out to me about this beer is its crispness. really like drinking fresh water from a stream.
