Fresh bottle (less than a month old) poured into a tulip glass. Track one from Pig Destroyer's album Book Burner playing. The color is a beautiful light orange brown and retained less than a finger of head for a few minutes. Robust lacing. Gorgeous. At refrigerator temperature, I just got a nose full of grapefruit and assorted citrus, but as the beer warmed and the smell developed, I got a distinct sense of pepper to balance out the sweeter citrus. The Diplomat, track five playing. This really does taste like a heavier Zombie Dust, but still feels refreshing in the mouth, which is surprising. It's not heavy at all, unlike track 10, Baltimore Strangler. It's a concise sip: pepper, citrus, crisp finish, all in rapid succession. All in all, an incredible beer. I wish I had picked up more than just one of these when I saw it in the shop.
By the way, in terms of pairing this with food - I drank the first half of the bomber while cooking and enjoying spaghetti and red sauce for dinner, and the second half with ice cream afterward. Honestly, I got the best flavor when I was just drinking the beer; pairing it feels like a conundrum. It doesn't have the same dry acidy bite that calls out for cheese that I sometimes get from other big pale ales, and it's not as sweet as I expected from some of the other reviews. (I am guessing that the people who find it extraordinarily sugary are not drinking it fresh.) I hope I find it again so I can get closer to matching it with the perfect partner. In short: get some of this if you can, and don't hold on to it - drink it!

Poured from bottle into tulip glass.
Appearance: Deep golden honey color with a nice frothy head at first.
Smell: This is quite possibly one of the best-smelling / most aromatic beers I've ever had. The smell is very fresh, hoppy, and fruity. Had my mouth watering as I poured it.
Taste: This is a fantastic tasting beer. Ranks right up there as one of the best DIPAs I've ever tasted.
Mouthfeel: There is a bit of a viscous feel to hit. Almost like theres a slight bit of honey in it.
Overall: This beer was crazy good. Easily making it into my top 3. Can't wait to gave more!

A beautiful looking beer: a slightly burnt bright orange. A nice but not overpowering piney-citrus scent and a big oily mouthfeel. Upfront the taste is intense: pungently hoppy with a grapefruit orange flavor. But I found the finish just a bit bland. Nice no doubt but not as powerful as I expected.
Serving type: on-tap
