Enjoyed a bomber at a local establishment while much of the area was digging out of recent snowfall. A big beer like this was just what the doctor ordered. Poured from a bomber into a traditional pint glass (bummer). Beer cascades well with a orange color into a thick, rich ivory head. The head leaves great lacing. The smell is wonderful with several citrus and floral tones upfront, the hops are certainly there but not overpowering, your nose can easily search and find the malts and some undetermined spices. Drinking this beer upfront you aren't overly assaulted with the hops but rather the floral and citrus tones. It gets abit chewy in the middle with some malts and finishes strong with the long lasting hop bitterness. It is very close to being a genuine full-bodied beer with medium carbonation. The drinkability of this beer is wonderful because the hops aren't overly assaulting but last a long while on your palate. The high ABV might slow down a longer drinking session but it is well worth a try. I will certainly be drinking it again.
