4.19/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Aroma Coma pours out a brilliant, warm, clear, light copper color. I really can't overstate the attractiveness of the color of this. About 1" of pure white head forms, which has just okay, but very good lacing. A good, moderate amount of carbonation is present. Really the only thing keeping this appearance score from being perfect is the retention could be a bit better.

Smell: A bit of pale and caramel malt is apparent, but really the highlight is a combination of great floral and grassy notes. Resin notes are in the background but definitely there. Not quite as powerful as I was expecting based on the name. Seems nicely balanced, but I was not expecting a nose dominated by florals.

Taste: Good solid pale malt backbone followed by floral hops and a lot of citrus hop flavor. Way more citrus on the palate than on the nose, namely tropical fruit and bitter grapefruit rind. A bit resiny on the finish, and drying.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is light-medium with an appropriate amount of carbonation. As I mentioned before, a bit drying. Quite refreshing and easy drinking. Definitely drinks easier than it's 6.7% mark. Overall, I really enjoyed this.... great hop complexity and freshness. Definitely a winner in my book.

Bomber > Tulip Glass

A - Clear yellow gold with a solid two fingers of foamy white head, thick lacing.
S - Amazing aroma, sweet malt, mango, pear, peach, some dank pine and grass, a little banana, very exotic.
T - Sweet malt and strong bitterness up front, then its orange candy, tons of ripe mango, peach, a little white grape, dank pine bit at the end.
M - Finish is on the extreme dry side. Mouthfeel is medium but bitter as well.
O - The name is what this beer really is, great aroma, flavor is good, but its not the best it could be. Glad to have gotten it though.

If you like fresh, sticky hops; stick your face in this.

After making a somewhat painstaking trip to find Drake's Brewing Co because of our Uber driver, we got in and tried a few beers. Well, the missus tried a few beers. I remember having and enjoying this beer a lot, so I just jumped right in. It was a good call.

Get this while you can and send me some!
