4.2/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a bight, crystal clear golden orange with a white, 1/2 finger width head. Sub-par retention. Lacing is spotty at best.

Smell - Aroma hits on multiple levels: pine, grapefruit, orange sweetness, bread and a touch of caramel.

Taste - Hits on a lot of pine and sweet orange character upfront. Strong bready malt backbone. Loads of citrus hop, red grapefruit and caramel sweetness mid-taste, then finishes with moderate grapefruit pith.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full bodied with fair carbonation. Tingly. Smooth on the finish. Does well to hide the 9.5% ABV.

Overall - Fantastic Double IPA. Wonderful balance. Strong, complex hop character. Hoppy, without being overly bitter. My favorite offering in Firestone-Walker's "Pale" run.

Bomber to Lawson's sniffer

A: dark orange to amber color with basically no tab head and is completely opaque

S:pure malt smell almost like its past its prime but there is no bottle date really nothing else there

T:follows the nose pure malt no hops at all the way through the finish which is malty and sweet not bitter at all there is no balence here complete malt bomb maybe this bottle isn't fresh but really not good rep of style IMO

M:oily and very thin kinda drinkable but not necessarily pleasant

O:I wanted to like this beer but I really just don't like it it was so malty it was almost skunked not a dipa style at all literally no hops even worse then Union Jack maybe I need to try it fresher but for now I'm not a fan
