bomber into tulip. cant seem to locate any bottled-on date.
A: a very pretty haze on this very bright orange hued brew. head is creamy and bright white. retention is good as is the lacing.
S: the hop resins are strong on the nose. passion fruit. pomegranate. some caramel undertones makes this oh-so warm and inviting. the last sniff just smelled like a fresh bag of weed. that may have bumped it up half a point...
T: bitter without being overbearing is something i definitely notice during my first few sips. similar to the nose, the caramel, lightly toasted grain is just enough to provide backbone and body w/out being a real main player. there is some kind of metallic flavor in there that i cant seem to shake. scratch that, just shook it. finish lingers with some pine resin.
M: carbonation bubbles are tiny and refreshing. certainly full-bodied. well done for the style.
D: another hoppy west coast winner from green flash. absolutely terrifically fresh american hop pine and fruit flavors. the off-and-on metallic notes are the only deterrent for me. otw, this rocks.
