had a pint on tap, review is from memory
had a ton of off white head, and the lacing was great. I could count how many drinks it took to finish this one. The color looked almost amber, but it may have been because of the lighting at the restaurant.
the smell was all hops to me.
taste was much more of the smell. hops and more hops, but not bitter
crispy mouth feel and easy to drink.
overall, not my favorite style, but a really good beer for the hop heads
Serving type: on-tap

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.
