Found it refrigerated, so had to scoop it up to try.
Poured from bomber into chalice. Bottle has all sorts of speakeasy sayings and stuff on the bottle, i thought it was a little cheesy but wanted to try it. Clear gold with a decent head that sticks around, and some decent lacing as well.
Smells really good, fresh, hoppy magic.
Tastes even better! Cant even really describe it... oily pine resin, hops and more hops, but surprisingly not that bitter.
Fresh and smooth in the mouth, quite nice. The taste lingers on for awhile.
Drinkability? Let's just say i'm gonna be sad when i finish this glass.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden color with a one finger head composed of a billowy white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is a mix of bready and cracker malt aromas with a decent showing of a grapefruit citrus and pine hop aroma. With a nice caramel and tropical fruit sweetness mixed within the aroma is rather inviting overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a drier crackery and biscuit taste along with some lighter hop flavors of a more grapefruit nature. As the taste advances it sweetens up a bit with some lighter caramel flavors coming to the tongue and with the more cracker flavor fading a bit. At the same time the hop flavors intensity some with both the grapefruit hop growing stronger as well as some flavor of pine and grassy hop coming to the tongue. In the end, the mix of hop, malt, and sweetness leave a rather crisp and clean hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both were quite nice for the crisp and hopped flavors of the brew, making for a very pleasant drinking IPA.
Overall – A rather crisp and clean, overall drier IPA. Overall quite nice.
Serving type: on-tap
