Poured into a tulip glass. Thanks, Shannon.

A: Bright orange, opaque. A white one-finger head that dissipates fast. Thick lacing.

S: Grapefruit and piney hops lead the way.

T: Oh, man. Apricots come out of nowhere, followed by mangoes and a tangerine finish. Smooth, sweet, decadent. Can't feel the alcohol. Such a killer brew.

M: Medium with medium to heavy carbonation.

O: One of those divine beers that must be consumed to be believed. Please bury me with a case of Permanent Funeral. This is heaven.

This beer is so smooth for 100 IBU year beer and 10.5 ABV. I didn't research this before I drank it. I simply poured my glass full and started enjoying it. I thought it was rather smooth with a slight bit of heat to it that I knew was a higher ABV. I drank the bomber in a little less than an hour.

It smelled great. Malt presence was strong, but not overpowering like a lot of big IPA's. I really get disappointed when an ipa tastes like a malt bomb. I would drink this again...and again...and again. This beer is in my top 20 ever had.
