Thanks to black13 for this bottle,

22oz. bomber bottled on 11 Feb 2014 poured into a HF wine glass. Served at 40F.

A: Deep cloudy copper body covered with ~1" of creamy off-white head that lingers for a few minutes leaving thick lacing on the glass. Fine carbonation is evident. Gentle swirling regenerates the head.

S: Dank hops with a bright citrus scent. No overt malt smell.

T: Grapefruit and orange dominate. Hints of a malt backbone, but this is most certainly hop forward. Clean finish with little residual bitterness.

M: Very heavy, almost syrupy consistency. Hop resins leve a slick coating on the inside of my mouth. Good carbonation for the style.

O: A nice double IPA. Perhaps a bit past it's best day, but still very enjoyable.
