3.64/5 rDev -10.1%

Beautiful copper color with just a touch of lacing that is developing into a nice spiderweb.
Some caramel and citrus in the nose that leans towards orange. Toffee and some vanilla that I suspect is from the oak.
I don't get as much oak as I would have thought. There is some drier notes in the mouthfeel but I get a pleasing amount of light caramel, citrus and a touch of fruity esters. Just a tad bigger then the heavy handed and this one dries out in the finish. Big enough on the hops without being too overpowering. I would guess the super galena if I was pressed to choose.
This bomber does pack a punch. A very nice tweener here. Great for the price.

Pours amber to brown in color with a thin half finger head that has decent retention.
Smell has some awesome fresh hop aromas. Fresh herbal, floral notes with a little bit of spicy hop notes as well. Malt is lightly toasted and gives this brew a really nice sweet grainy aroma.
Taste is awesome. Tons of fresh hops are forward. Mainly herbal and floral with hints of spicy hops. Hop are awesome in this, all flavor and aroma, very mild bitterness. Malt give some more grainy flavors that help balance this double ipa nicely.
Mouthfeel is great tons of sticky hop oils and resin, yet still crisp and refreshing. Bitterness is mild and keeps this beer very drinkable.
Overall this is a really nice change from the typical citrus and piney ipa. Love the wet hop, it leave some great aromas flavors and resin. I just burped and it's 100% hop oil.
