Poured from a bomber into my chalice. Avoided this one because of the cheesy label graphic... lesson learned.
Not too much head, solid lacing. Clear dark gold color with little bits of yeast suspended within.
Popped the top and put my nose to the bottle. Instantly knew this was going to be an excellent beer. Hop oil to the point it almost smells bitter, sweet citrusy and wonderful.
Tastes like a true IPA, bitterness abounds and changes flavors as it warms. Grapefruity bitter goodness, raisins, etc... it's hop-tastic.
Feels nice and thick on the tongue, lets its presence known.
7 is my favorite number, and i could drink a few bottles of this easily. Each time i put the glass down i find myself reaching back for it. Shame i went for the bomber and not the six pack.
