22 oz bomber poured into an oversized snifter.
A - Nice orange color, with a half-inch of white head that fades leaving a nice arrangement of bubbles and lacing. Looks like a textbook DIPA.
S - Citrus and piney hops, some rye malt, a hint of some fresh fruits and honey.
T - I would describe this beer as a malty hop-bomb: there are a ton of hops at first but a nice malty backbone follows almost immediately to even out the bitterness.
M - Perfect amount of carbonation. The tastes linger for a while.
O - While this is more malty than many of the DIPA's I have tried, it is not the malt-bomb that (for example) Bittersweet Lennys is. Very good balance; I would say the hop/malt ratio is 70/30. A very good and original DIPA by Victory.
