Opened bomber that had NOT been agitated and lost about 2-3 inches of beer as it spewed from the top with torrential carbonation. When I tried to pour into pint glass very carefully, I received one inch of beer and the rest of the glass was a hard, tan head that looked like a solid iceberg. Trust me, I know how to pour a beer and this one was impossible(old, bad?, I do not know. Taste is not bad but not as hoppy as I would expect after seeing the 60 IBU note. Lots of citrus and orange/tangerine. Trust me, let the head die down before drinking, the head is so bitter.................Overall, do not know if I got a bad or old bottle, but this was not impressive at all. I can still taste the horribly bitterness from the head!!Also, carbonation is way too much !!!!

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.
