Appearance: A great rocky and foamy head with spotted and sticky lacing. Very clear golden color.

Nose: Hoppy, dank, and fresh.

Taste: Crisp and hoppy up front. Clean, syrupy malt comes next. This is a very well balanced DIPA. There is some hoppy dryness at the end. Hides it's alcohol extremely well.

Notes: This is a sneaky DIPA that is well crafted.

Bomber served fresh and cold into a goblet. No date stamp but it's new to colorado so it shouldnt be more than a month since bottled.

Dorado is a beautiful shade of pale copper orange. It has good clarity for a double IPA and thick dense head. Good retention and nice lacing as it settles.

Aroma is fresh, hoppy, and dank with bitter citrus zest and grapefruit juice.

Flavor is bold and bitter with just enough malt to give it some balance. Similar to Hop Slam if my memory serves with a shared honey-like sweetness upfront and big hop flavor and bitterness from middle to end.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus with just the right amount of carbonation.

Overall an excellent over the top California DIPA. Certainly worth the wait.
