4.85/5 rDev +9.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5
22oz. Bomber $7 from local liquor store
Look: Crystal clear bronze with a really aggressive white head.
Smell: Woah! Huge grapefruit and citrus hops completely envelops the nose!
Taste: Citrus bomb! Huge grapefruit, orange, tangerine, lemon, and clementine notes leasd to a really nice earthy hop mellow that rounds out with a nice malt backbone. Citrus hops linger throughout and long after each sip! A bit like biting into marmalade on toast!
Mouthfeel: At first it's wet and quenching but that quickly dries out like a nice champagne. the 7% ABV is undetectable! Perfect body!
Overall: Wow. Heard great things about this one and boy did it live up. Every aspect really works together. From the citrus hop bomb to the malt balancing act to the superb dry finish that allows the hops to shine through again. In a market filled with IPA's this one is something special. Get it.

Believe the hype! This mutha is fo RE-al.
Poured from 22 oz bomber acquired via trade into chilled pint glass. Beautiful light orange color, nice fluffy 1-inch white head, and lots of tiny bubbles with ample sticky lacing throughout. The nose is a gorgeous mango/grapefruit/papaya olfactory orgasm. And the flavors on the palate, while less fruity/floral than the nose, do not disappoint. To the contrary, piney resin and grapefruit notes lend a mellow balance to the solidly structured hop profile, with virtually zero alcohol burn evident. The mouthfeel is as full and chewy as an IPA can get, while the finish is long, smooth, lasting, and complex.
Really love this beotch. Will come back to her lair often!
