Bomber served in a tulip.

A- Pours an absolutely crystal clear golden-orange body with a two finger off white head that lasts.

S- Tons of citrus aroma. A little pine in the background and ever-so-slightly noticeable alcohol. Lots more going on, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Something like dill and pineapple.

T- Moderate bitterness, but a fairly balanced malt and hop presence. More piney and grassy than citrusy in the taste. A lingering spiciness and some mango finish things off.

M- Medium feel with crisp carbonation.

O- Pretty tasty brew, and even better since it was a trade extra!

A: Pours a light orange with absolutely brilliant clarity. Definitely filtered. Finger of off whtie head. Dissipation of the head is moderate. Lacing is stellar. Carbonation is mild, with bubbles lazily risimg to form the substantial head.

S: Aroma definitely a correct name for the this. This one pops with juicy tropical notes. Pineapple, grapefruit, spicy mango. Carries a mild undertone of the onion/garlic, but this is pretty subdued. Definite dankness in this one. Smells intensely fruity, without the edge that huge hops can bring.

T: Moderate hop bitterness up front. Citrus takes off, with hints of grapefruit, lemon and kumquat pith. Some guava, mild pineapple juice. Agitation brings up harsher elements of lemon peel, pine needle and a definite astringency. Finishes with a tropical sweetness and a very focused malt bill. Malt is present, but it is strictly a stage for the aromatic and fruity hops to play. Aftertaste is predominantly tropical, again exploding with huge tropical and mango notes. Finishes very dry, with a spike of citric pine. Aftertaste is very dry and surprisingly bitter.

M: Absolutely perfect texture. Absolutely glides and coats the palate for being such a low abv beer. The bubbles are miniscule, and do a great job of opening and refreshing the palate.

O: This beer is damn delicious. Definitely in my upper tier of single IPA's. The aromas are quite delicious, and the texture is absolutely amazing.

El Dorado hops used bring out a great aroma of lifesavers candy and a slight cherry soda smell. The taste is a great balance of malt and hops. The right amount to allow both characters to come through. The citra hops bring out the big tropical fruit taste. This was bottled over 20 days ago. A great fresh, bitter, big tropical IPA.
