3.9/5 rDev -0.8%
22oz bomber purchased from online vendor.
Appearance: Pours a classic slightly hazy copper tinged orange with a 2 finger faintly off white crown that shows some retention and tons of lace.
Smell: A stiff amount of pleasant caramel, grassy, herbal, pine, and tea like notes from the Columbus hops. Not much of a discernible Nelson Sauvin quality (maybe it isn't the freshest bomber or summer transit diminished it a bit).
Taste: Same as the nose with a well executed amount of hop bitterness and fairly clean bitter finish. Really adds to the drinkability.
Mouthfeel: The body is on the thick side of medium, with a very creamy crown and moderate carbonation. As mentioned previously, the finish isn't overly astringent or lingering, which couples beautifully with the creamy head. Clearly the most standout quality of the beer.
Overall: This is the epitome of classic (circa '95 - '10) pacific north west style IPA. A good quality hop bitterness, some caramel malt presence (but not overboard), with the right look, an ABV that satisfies / lends itself to drinkability (not putting you under like a DIPA would), and an excellent mouthfeel.

4.39/5 rDev +11.7%
This beer is extra special on tap. I have had this in a bottle, but on tap, it tastes two times as good. It appears ruby red. This is unique for an IPA. The smell is amazing. The Citra Hops stands out in the aroma and taste of this outstanding IPA. The mouthfeel is lacking some umphhh, but gets it done and comes together well. Overall, this is a world-class beer on-tap.
