One of the more talked about IIPAs, I've been excited to drink this one for a while now. I don't want to let it age any more that I have to.
Bomber => Pilsner glass.
A - Hazy, unfiltered apple cider look, with a thin head that retains well. Good lacing.
S - Citrus, and pine with moderate sweetness behind. Almost like a grapefruit flavored hard candy.
T - Delicious. Grapefruit with good bitterness. Alcohol sweetness, but also a stong malt character, Toasty carmel malt adds fantastic pastery like sweetness. I am usually a big fan of hop strong IIPAs, but this one suits me very well, because the sweetness, while strong, is not overdone.
M - Medium bodied, good mouthfeel. It probably got rated lower because I had a Rochefort trappiste 10 earlier in the day, and that had the best feel I've ever experienced in a beer.
D - A little strong on the alcohol content to be an extremely drinkable beer, from a session standpoint, but i would love one of these every so often.
