Bomber to snifter, enjoy by 9/13 date
Pours a straw gold with two and a half fingers of foam. A couple minutes now and it's died down to a finger with some good lacing. Moderate carbonation and a good deal of transparency. A little darker color and a bit more clarity would have this one perfect. Smells of strong citrusy hops, grapefruit, and a splash of alcohol melding with a sweet malt. Tastes a little short of the hop, focuses on the fruit flavors coming together with the malt. Not what I'm used to with a double ipa but it's pretty interesting, very tasty. Feel is a nice crisp medium body, sticky, and pretty drinkable. Overall this stuff is different but good. I should have opted for the six pack instead of bomber

This beer is technically past its prime, but I saw it on the shelf and knew I needed to grab one while I could.
A: It's a beautiful beer. Pours a bright tangerine color. Pretty clear, maybe a little chill haze. Two fingers of head that slowly dissipates. Awesome lacing on the glass.
S: For an old bottle the hops are still very present in the aroma. Powerful citrus and pine. There's almost a hoppy sweetness in the nose.
T: Yep, awesome beer. It lives up to the hype for me. Strong hop characteristics of pine, citrus, and floral notes. Slightly resinous. There's actually a very slight sourness to it like a strong belgian pale. Perhaps that's from the age.
MF: There's a great malt character that keeps this beer pretty balanced for all the hoppyness it provides. Very carbonated, again almost like a belgian strong ale. The alcohol is very present, slightly warming.
O: An awesome beer. I wish there were more than one of these at the bottle shop. Great balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. I think I would describe this as straight up hop juice.
