Bomber > Pint Glass
A - Nice clear gold with a thick two finger foamy white head, beautiful thick lacing.
S - Sweet candied kinda malts, orange, pineapple, hop resins, lemon, grapefruit.
T - This has the west coast punch of hops with the sweetness of an east coast, but it somehow falls between really well. Lots of sweet fruit oily hop goodness.
M - Definitely chewy, and it clings and lingers on your palate forever, lots of bitterness and teeth coating thickness to it.
O - Wonderul aroma and flavor, the malt is a tad intense, and the feel needs some smoothing out, but for my first Heretic beer, I was pleased.

Great Double IPA on tap. I have never tried a bottle. Enjoyed having a driver so I could enjoy my visits to Heretic. Small place but I hope to see it grow. You need a driver or a cab. Nothing near by. Have some CHP for desert after the IPAs.
