bomber into SAVOR snifter. no bottled on date.
A: a bit of haze on an orange/golden body. frothy, slightly orange head. head retention is great. fantastic lacing.
S: good hop presence on the nose. a lot of pine. a lot. a little bit of bubblegum. a minor caramel, malt aroma.
T: a lot of pine and hop resins. pretty chewy for a hop forward DIPA. maybe a slight oxidation. bitterness is present, but not over-the-top. definitely can taste some of that conditioning yeast. sort of softens everything up.
M: really creamy mouthfeel. soft and silky. full bodied.
D: very well balanced and drinkable. the booze/heat is manageable. good conditioning, not great as I desire a little more carb. pretty good DIPA, not outstanding in my opinion. I think that has something to do with the fact this may have been sitting around for a couple of months since its release. im sure fresh this stuff is the bomb. all I can say is put bottled on dates on please!
