4.23/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Bomber picked up at City Beer Store in SF, poured into a snifter
A: bright glowing orange, fluffy head and looks to be good lacing
S: The name lived up to expectations! Huge citrus kick with mango and tropical fruit. I assume that is the Citra coming through.
T: Starts very clean, then there is a nice mix of tropical and spicy hops. It finishes with a good balance of hop bitterness and a malt backbone.
M: Very good body and very easy to drink
Wow, this is one a great smelling beer. The taste is different than expected from a California IPA, but this is fantastic. It is more balanced than others west coast IPAs. My nose may be in my drink the entire time I drink this.

4.26/5 rDev +0.2%

22 oz. bomber poured into Golden Road tulip glass. Bottled on 7/1/14, drank on 7/25/14.
A: A very appealing gold -- fairly opaque, and with a decent-sized foam head that lingers.
S: Intoxicating aroma that fills the glass. Tropical fruits, some mild sugar and pine are all abundantly present.
T: Sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Those tropical fruit tones and sugary malts are at the forefront, with the pine coming in on the backend.
M: Starts off on the medium side, but gets a bit heavier as it warms. Some pretty mild carbonation and a non-resiny finish still make these very pleasant.
O: This beer is everything it's supposed to be; some amazing aromas and a hop profile that also delivers some great tastes, too. It's a very good IPA for summer -- finding a great balance between flavor and body, while not possessing alcohol content that's going to make it difficult to drink in the sun.
