Bomber > Pint Glass

A - Mostly clear deep gold with a nice finger of soapy off white head, medium on the lacing.
S - Lots of pine and citrus, very classic west coast aroma, a litte skunky and dank, caramel and bread malt
T - Mild pine and grassy bitterness up front, dank floral comes in with some lightly sweet malt, some bread, and citrus zest.
M - Finishes rather dry and rather bitter.
O - Overall a good west coast IPA, done right by the standard.

Bottle pour. Can't find a date on this bottle, which could be its downfall. Malty aroma with tiny hints of citrus. Bitter and unremarkable taste that could have been better balanced with more malt presence. Perhaps it's better fresh, assuming this one isn't. Bottling date please. Decent mouthfeel, but mixed with unwelcome bitterness.
