22 oz bomber, no date on bottle, poured into a snifter.
A- Pours a golden amber color with a thin creamy, sticky head. Leaves good lacing.
S- Holy crap, this beer has one of the best hop aromas I've smelled in a long time. Massive pine sap aroma with loads of citrus and herbs. Very bright, fresh aroma.
T- More giant hops, solid bitterness with more pine, citrus, all the good IPA stuff, the hops also have a spicy, earthy, dank character that's very interesting. Slightly sweet, caramelly malt, has a bit of graininess to it. Alcohol becomes more present as the beer warms and contributes a mild tropical fruit flavor. Overall it's not a very boozy or sweet beer, it definitely leans heavily on the brighter pine and citrus flavors and that dank hop flavor.
M- Medium bodied, smooth, very creamy feel, finishes bone dry, a bit of warmth from the alcohol.
O- An awesome DIPA, I really love hop bombs and this one is huge, it's an excellent West Coast style DIPA but really sets itself apart with its complex hop flavors, super tasty.
