Bomber poured into a nonic pint glass

A- Burnt orange. A little sediment floats. Off whit head is bubbly, but doesn't retain especially well. Lacing is good, however.

S- Caramel, earthy and resinous hop characters. Subtle in the hop department. Reminds me so far of an English IPA.

T- Resinous hop, some pine. A bit of a caramel base in the background. Subdued flavor.

M- Bitterness is up there. Especially in finish. Feel is a bit creamy.

O- This one is okay. I didn't find the flavors to meld too well together, and for that matter, didn't get a burst of flavor. This seems closer to an English than an American.

Nice body and a bit of Campari bite, thus it is fairly dry. This IPA has a fair bit of hoppiness so many might not like it. Seemed to have a preservative that my sinus reacted too...which was the only issues with this nice one. Other nice bit it's 6.3% , which is perfect right after a meal.

I had this beer on-tap in a tall glass at the Alaskan Lounge at Sea-Tac Airport. My 2000th review!

Appearance: deep golden orange hue with a very light haze and a finger of creamy ivory foam leaving a nice lace on the glass. I like it.

Smell: caramelly and bready malt with an earthy, dank hop character. Pretty good, if earthy is your thing.

Taste: bready, ever so slightly biscuity malt with a dank, earthy hop character. Bitterness is pretty strong but it comes on slow. Not bad.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a nice rocky creaminess. Pretty decent for an IPA.

Overall: a good-drinkin' dank and earthy IPA. Not always my bag, but it hits the spot well enough.
