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.

From 04/16/14 notes. Thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one. 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.

a - Pours a murky, amber-yellow color with two inches of fluffy off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of pine hops, citrus hops, fruity malts, grapefruit, resin, earthy notes.

t - Tastes of pine hops, bready malts, dough, citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, earthy malts. Taste is good but definitely maltier than the nose, with a lot of bread and dough.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. No bitter bite to it.

o - Overall I thought this was a really good beer. Definitely not a hop bomb and as hoppy as a lot of IPA's these days, but it was tasty so who cares. No bitterness and easy to drink, worth checking out.
