Served into a brandy snifter 2/24/2015.

A- Slightly hazy orange body, one finger white head with nice retention time, no lacing.

S- Pineapples, citrus, tropical fruit, bread, onions. The onions are killing me, but the rest of the aroma is pretty solid- resinous hops galore. Not too oily, with a mild floral aspect hidden in there as well.

F- Bread, biscuits, tropical fruit dominant with a bitter citrus finish. Solid west-coast style IPA profile.

M- Medium bodied, a bit dry and resinous on the finish which is mostly citrus and floral hops. Not difficult to drink.

O- Solid west coast IPA. There are better ones out there, but this isn't a bad one to have at the bar.

Side by side I like this IPA better than Pliney the Elder.

The beer pours a clear, deep golden-copper color with a foamy white head that clings to the glass while drinking. The nose is floral (lavender and honeysuckle) and slightly boozy with some tropical citrus and grain on the back end. It drinks very clean despite aggressive and flavorful hops, which don't seem to out-compete the beer' sucrose backbone. It's well carbonated, exceptionally hoppy, but quite drinkable due to its balance and semi-sweet finish with a bite. This bomber was very easy to drink and I could easily see myself drinking this beer in the future
