Bomber poured into New Belgium Snifter

A- Translucent copper orange with nice white head. Moderate lacing. Great looking beer.

S- Big grapefruit and piney hops. A bit of earthy, dank hops. Bit of a caramel undertone. Very big and nice smelling beer.

T- This is a freshy! Big grapefruit rind and pine. Nice caramel undertone, but not enough to make this a balanced DIPA, which is exactly what I expected. This is a wonderful bitter beer!

M- Mouthfeel is awesome. Medium to full with perfect carbonation to create a nice creamy mouthfeel. Bitterness stays a long time on the palate.

O- As the name implies, this is a palate wrecker. Most enjoyable and one any hophead should seek out immediately.

Poured in to a tulip. 2 finger, off-white head with a clear copper colored body. Great lacing.

Aroma was very nice. Definitely a double IPA. Loads of citrus and malty sweetness. Some mango and grapefruit. Some caramel malts and a light breadiness.

Taste was great as well. Mild bitterness upfront that seems to increase on the tongue. Lingers slightly with a grapefruity-ness. Good maltiness mellows out the hops. Some definite caramel and bready flavors. Hop flavor is tropical flavors with some strong citrus, grapefruit and resinous hops. Coats the tongue in the finish, without being overly bitter.

Mouthfeel is medium body with medium-high carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall this was a nice brew. No signs of ABV, good bitterness without being excessive. Sweetness helps mellow it all out.
