Bomber.

The moment the cap was popped this just oozed a beautiful whiffy glaze of husky lightly piney bitterness.

When poured this immediately formed an off white foamy 3/4 inch head which slowly shrunk but remained a decent ring ring for the duration. Nice light bright golden orangy slight haze colour. Initaially not much beading until I was about 1/3 of the way down the glass then many tiny tiny waves of ubiquitous beads.

A penetrating but trim and finesse bitterness. A great deep dry husky cleansing and dominating bitterness with some hop oily element there at the end as well. As it warms in the glass the body grows ever so slightly and takes on a a honeyish element.
Still not much more than medium bodied but supports all those 102 IBUs effortlessly without anything roidish whatsoever. Truly astounding. Must be some sort of world record and it just lets the beers many positive qualities just do the rounds around your sense.

Totally dominant and delicious. Was on my lips until the end of the evening.

The 22 ounce bomber just seemed to call out to me at Liquor Barn - how can you go wrong with "Hop Stoopid". Turns out I didn't. Enjoyed this with an Italian meal. The hop aroma with the mix or citrus and pine was almost overwhelming and the flavor profile didn't let me down. Although the label claims 102 IBU, the sweet malt backbone still comes through with a very nice balance between the hop and malt. This stood up quite well to spicy Italian food but I think it would be good with just about anything.

Overall this is just a very nice Imperial IPA that I will purchase again.
