22 oz. bottle purchased at the brewery, unknown brewing/packaging date, poured into my FFF Teku glass, drank over 30-45 minutes

A: 2/3 - golden-orange coloration, low clarity (cannot read or see through), initial eggshell white frothy head settles into a glass lacing with carbonation lakes, small tight white bubbles emerging off the bottom of the glass, medium-to-large alcohol legs

S: 10/12 - moderate-to-large hop aroma - citrus, grapefruit, peach, mango and pine/resin; moderate bready/biscuity malt and alcohol aromas

T: 14/20 - on the front of the tongue, there is an aggressive slap of bitterness that is slow to abate; this is eventually followed by citrus and tropical fruit flavors in the middle of the flavor profile; on the back end, there is a moderate malt sweetness and alcohol; however, the finish is generally dry

M: 4/5 - thick, chewy body with hop oils and alcohol; moderate carbonation

O: 8/10 - very good-to-excellent DIPA that finds slight flavoring towards citrus and tropical fruit hops - would guess that there is a heavy hand of both Centennial and Simcoe here - but with some balancing but still on the hop end; nice pick-up for $10/bomber but definitely not a 98 for me

TOTAL - 38/50

Rich and thick mouthfeel, drinks like a port wine. Carmel, marmalade, and almost a burnt toast flavor. Interesting and complex, but not something I would finish a bottle alone. Good beer to end the night on.

Citrus atoma, Golden color, nice head, sweet and multibody with the tank he hop you taste. Very smooth. Yum.
