look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Pours a hazy deep orangish amer. 1-2finger off white head. Tons of lacing and retention.

S: Pine, resin, citrus (apricot) and a hint of malt sweetness.

T: Close to the nose. Hop forward with a bit of a bitterness the flows into a sweet citrus and resin. Finishes with a tiad bit of bitterness that lingers.

M: Medium body and carbonation.

O: Excellent IIPA. The bitterness balances out well with the citrus for a well rounded brew. Remember to drink fresh!

Bomber into a Long trail Pint glass

A: Its got that golden honey IPA color but I am surprised by how translucent it is while being an imperial IPA I usually find them to be more cloudy. There is also a 2cm white head that disputes fairly quickly

S: lots of tropical fruit I seem to get a similar melony smell that is precent in other FFF IPAs. There is also a smell of pine after tasting it i feel i can almost smell the bitterness

T: Well the hops that sure do hit with force in the taste the bitterness is almost overpowering (seems like a palate wrecker for sure). Despite the bitterness up front there is a solid malt backbone that stays for a while with the bitterness. I was disappointed at the lack of citrus melony flavor that I thought would come after the smell i can't taste it at all. There is piney resiny type taste but it just adds to the power of the bitterness

M: I was surprised by how thick it felt despite its light color it is oily though. I also can feel the carbonation as I drink, more so then other IPAs i feel.

O: I have to say I was disappointed by this one its not bad but the bitterness is just too overwhelming to me, there seems to be no effort of balance just a bitter hop attack. I was expecting something more fruity after trying ZD but who knows it could be me (usually i like a lot of hops) wasn't bad by any means though. I really wanted to like this one I just can't.

Bottled bomber, got to love FFF artwork, served in a weizen glass

A - a clear copper amber with a 2 finger fluffy white head with excellent retention and great thin lacing.

S - strong pine and citrus hops notes with a nice malt presence and a touch of alcohol, this olfactory preview is titillating.

T - starts a little sweet with caramel malts the the hop slam insues, heavy on the citrus grapefruit notes but a nice piney presence as well and a hint of grassy meadow. The hops adventure here is complex and the finish is bitterly bold but not overwhelming with a gret smooth etoh to balance the strong hops

M - medium body, mod carbonation, crisp

O - I really loved everything about this beer. Any DIPA fan should appreciate this brew. I'll be sure to pick another bottle up next time I see it.
