22 oz. brown bomber with no date I could find.
Clear light copper in color with a white clinging big bubbled froth that laces and rings down the glass.
Pine, pancakes, pineapple, grapefruit, and caramel notes in the nose.
Medium bodied, initially crushed velvet smooth, the mouthfeel turns oily and slick with a blasting grapefruit taste as it develops. Resinous pine sap, herbal notes, and candy sweetness show as it warms. A cracker-like malt backbone plus the sugary sweetness hold up well to the hop onslaught.
Although I favor the Amarillo/Warrior hop flavors, it's hard to beat the tried and true C-hop flavors for AIPA's. One of my favorite examples of the style.
