This beer is amazing. Dreadnaught has a serious competitor!

Poured from a bomber.

A: Normal looking IPA. Golden hue, perhaps a bit darker. Poured with a fingers worth of head that dwindled down to a small foam on top that left some great lacing on my pint glass.

S: Sugary and alcohol in the nose. It smells very sweet with strong citrusy hops. Maybe more of a lemon dipped in sugar. Such an interesting and strong aroma.

T: Awesomeness. Sweet and syrup up front. Pine needles on the finish. A huge malt flavor balances with a huge hop taste. I don't think it could have been done better with these ingredients.

M: Bitter peppery feeling while maintaining a creaminess in the cheeks and side of the tongue. A balance I love to see in an IPA and this is the perfect example of what I expect.

O: Love this beer, I think the bomber cost me $10 but I'd say that's a deal for what you're getting here. If you see this one don't pass it up!
