Bomber poured into a pint glass. Can't remember bottled date but about a month old.
Pours nice orange color with good brightness and a 2 finger sticky head that leaves good retention. Smell is very fresh with lots of citrus fruits, nice earthy notes and a hop finish. Very good smelling. Taste is grapefruit, oranges, hops, and floral notes. Pretty standard for an IPA. Taste is spot on. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Overall this is fantastic. I could drink this all the time.

Poured into a standard pint glass. Bottled on 28-Jan-2014.
Hazy golden orange. Or as my wife puts it, "dehydrated pee." Nice silky-looking head with minuscule bubbles. Definitely unfiltered (as if they were lying). Head lasts as a film on the top of the beer until the last drop.
Spicy hops. Malty sweetness. Pineapple? Citrus! No alcohol. Low esters. Non-phenolic, although some spicy phenols may be melding with the spiciness of the hops.
This beer is just the right mix of hop bitterness, dank hoppy flavor and malt. Nothing seems out of balance. Nothing even peeks its head out more at one point before or after another flavor. Smooth as glass, tasty as a mofo. My glass doesn't spend much time on the coaster.
Medium bodied, how I like my ladies. Silky, how I like their undergarments.
What needs to be said? For some beers that have garnered a strong following there's no question as to why. The balance here is incredible. The flavors are just perfect and the contributions the hops, malts and yeast make come together for a wonderful experience. If you haven't had this beer, seek it out.
