Mineral and malt nose, not much in the way of hops although not 100 % sure how old this bottle is.

Balanced and sophisticated with a citrus hoppiness. Smooth without the least hint of bitterness. Eminently drinkable. Seek this out.

Bomber received in trade. Bottle dated 8/27/14
A: Beer pours a vibrant orange/amber color. A little cloudy. Big fluffy white head, about two fingers that sticks for a while. The very definition of gorgeous lacing.
S: WOW! Huge hop bomb on the nose. The Citra is exploding with grapefruit, tangerine, dank garlicky earthiness, pineapple, guava, and mango. Fresh bag of hops smell. One of the best beers on the nose that I can remember.
T: Boom! Follows the nose wonderfully with citrus, dankness, slight pine and tropical notes. Such a fresh and green taste. Not one aspect overpowers the other and very little bitterness in the finish for such a hop bomb. Nice yeasty taste on the back end as well. So tasty.
MF: My mouth was watering between sips. Great carb. My only negative is that I wish there was a little more malt backbone, especially since the beer is at 6.6% ABV.
O: What a treat! This beer is easily up there with Zombie Dust and PseudoSue.

Smells very juicy and fruity. Taste is pine, tropical fruit, a bit of melon. Excellent Pale.

Thanks Paul!
