Bomber poured into a Duvel tulip. Apricot/orange see-thru body with 2 fingers of fluffy off-white head. Good retention, with a fair amount of sticky lacing left in the upper portion of the glass.

Fresh hop aromas jump out of the glass, pungent and lively. Malty sweetness is present, but doesn't overwhelm. Tastes pretty much as advertised. Plenty of tropical fruits- grapefruit, orange, pineapple- with enough caramel to enhance the juicy feel, but not much more than that. The citrus yields midswallow to a resiny pine presence that dries out to a sticky finish. Some prickly pine bitterness lingers.

Overall impression: Nothing to complain about here. Nice IPA, easy recommendation.
