Bottle generously traded by Mr. Luis and the source.
A: Pours a clear amberish orange with an initial one-finger white head which fades to a thin cap leaving faint rings and splotchy lace.
N: Big time citrus (grapefruit, orange, tangerine) and tropicals (guava) along with dank sticky herbal weed-like notes. Some floral and malt too.
T: Juicy resinous extractables with pronounced citrus and herbal taint. Some caty and pine mix it up with the malt backing.
M: Medium body and carbonation. Slick and oily. Well balanced for a hop bomb. Bitter and dry finish.
O: Hard to beat for the price point. A really good hop monster here.

a very fine and quite sizable ipa. looks gorgeous, tons of white lacing and a puffy white head that stays an inch tall the whole time. sticky honey colored liquid, immaculately clear, with slowly rising little bubbles looking all lazy and carefree like a lava light. the nose is definitely on the sweeter resiny end of the hop spectrum, oily and fruity. thats all i really smell here. flavor is very bold on the hops, and although its over 100 ibu's, it doesnt seem very bitter to me at all. there is a tropical fruit vibe that hits before and after the bitter that really tames it. its going great with some russian rye bread and sharp cheese, but i could also imagine it going well with a big rare steak. there is a very summery feel to this ipa, less abrasive than many, and far more drinkable. the mouthfeel is velvety and smooth, its rich, but not as oily as i thought it would be from the extract and from the nose. its got well moving carbonation and it finishes long and intriguing. overall a pretty good beer here, especially for less than 5 bucks a bomber.
