bomber into a snifter.

pours a dark golden brown color with a finger thick white head. smell is quite malty...maybe old? taste is a bit hoppy and malty... ehh.. real average. not sure the freshness of this one but it could be as intended. grapefruit notes. its alright. mouthfeel is not what i like, just too malty for me. body is medium as well as carbonation.

overall just okay.

This ipa pours a cloudy orange amber hue with a generous cream colored head that gives way to nice concentric lacing. The aroma is maltier than I had expected. There are a lot of hops present (most notably lemon, pine, and tropical fruits) but there is also a very malty sweetness present that is a little unusual for the style. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a decent carbonation and a nice palate coating stickiness. The flavor confirms the nose. It begins quite malty and caramely sweet but quickly is taken over by an abundance of hops. It finishes bitter and dry. This is an accessable starter ipa for those that aren't indoctrinated to the world of hops but not something I'd seek out.
