I grabbed this bottle as I noticed it was newly available at the store. No date on the bottle but based on my previous statement I'm assuming it's very fresh. Pours a glorious copper/gold color with a thick foamy head. There's much lacing on the glass as each sip is taken. Well-carbonated. Stunning appearance! Aroma - wow! Very strong and bright grapefruit and citrus - juicy and fresh! A hint of pine in there as well. I can't do the nose justice enough - it's really bursting out of the glass like none other! The taste is magnificent as well - very bitter, just the way an Imperial IPA should be. Has a taste that can be described perfectly as cannabis! Earthy & resiny. The initial smacking of flavor on the palate still is the sweet citrus however, and it warms nicely going down. No malts detected whatsoever. It fully coats the mouth, like velvet, with a nice crisp finish. One cannot tell that this beer is over 9% by any means, so watch out! I finished the bomber myself and of course I have a bit of a dried out feeling afterward but that is to be expected. One of the best beer drinking experiences I've had in a while.
