Poured bomber bottled on 4/20/11 into my 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a ambery orange, with a 1 and half inch white head. Solid lacing. Smells citrus & papia. Taste is similar, with a hint of pine. Great mouth feel. Easy drinking for 9.5 abv. One of best DIPA in N.H.

Serving type: bottle

On tap at the 2010 Hayward Bistro DIPA festival.

Hazy straw color with nice lacing throughout the session. Subtle grapefruit smells with light malt in the background. Ruby red grapefruit taste with a light lingering bitter aftertaste. Full bodied flavor but not overpowering. A little light on the mouthfeel. This went down very smooth and at 9.5% multiples can be easily (and dangerously) attained.

Overall I was really anxious to try this since I am a huge fan of the Union Jack. This did not disappoint. More grapefruit goodness than the Union Jack but balanced very nicely. I know this would be expensive to bottle, but in the end, it may well be worth it. Excellent stuff.

Serving type: on-tap
