Poured from the bomber into a nonic pint.
Lovely fokkin' pour, that is. Copper color with with a nice lasting head that slowly dissipates and leaves some trailing lacing.
The aroma is not tops but will do: citrus and spice, a little grass and a bit of bread and cracker as well.
The taste is big an bold. Orange, candied fruit are first to hit my palate followed by a slow, building, spicy bitter note that finishes dry and lasts forever. That aftertaste, phew, I'm gobsmacked.
I love the mouthfeel on this brew, medium smooth but with a tingly, bubbly bit that you can feel on the lips and tongue. Outstanding.
Overall, really glad i got to try this beer and wish it was available to me on a regular basis. An outstanding IPA.
