Bomber poured into a glass.
A: Dark gold, half a finger, not much lacing. It even looks smooth.
S: Lots of tropical fruits. Pineapple, passion fruit, grapefruit, orange. Just amazing tropical aromas here. Lots of florals.
T: Lots of tropical fruit. Just bursting with pineapple and grapefruit. Honey sweet and grassy dryness.
M: Medium-body, medium-low carbonation, medium acidity. No charred or burnt aftertaste. A slight syrupy smoothness.
O: Just an amazing beer. When i first smelled it, I had a really good feeling about it. This is why IPAs are my favorite type of beer.
Serving type: nitro-bottle

This is a very good beer, but I have had better. Maybe I have held on to this one too long, but it was a bit too malty for my taste. Although the bottle promotes the balance and "control" like a raja of both hops and malts. I feel like the malts are too intense for the beer. Well balanced but for the style I would say medium to high ratings.
Color: Dark bronze, but with some transparency, also a very low amount of head and lacing.
Smell: Not as intense as a West Coast IPA. Maybe that is my favorite style?
Taste: Balanced, I got this one on sale for a super deal so I figured I would try it, but I would not pay what the original price reflected.
Overall: A Solid beer, well balanced, not as much hops going on as I would like but its not a bad beer in any regard. But, to me there are much better in the same price range.
Serving type: bottle
