On tap at the Winking Lizard. I had this one just a few days after it arrived in Cleveland, but was actually fortunate enough to have a 2 day old bottle this summer when a kind BA sent me one from the special batch. I find this beer doesn't fade as much as some of the other hop Bombs but should be experienced as fresh as possible!
Looks great in a 22oz glass - amber bubbly body with a white head that leaves a bit of lace.
Smell is really nice. Hops provide a nice citrus and pine base, and the malt is there too. Caramel with orange, lightly toasted bread with pine needles.
Taste is really quite good. Not an imperial knock-out, but a nice mix of caramelized malt and citrus hops. The Nugget and Warrior have a nice mix of tropical and earthy, and a nice bitter finish that does not decimate. This is much more balanced between hop and malt flavors than West Coast DIPAs.
Mouthfeel is average density and decent carb, slightly creamy on tap, good but nothing groundbreaking.
Drinkability is excellent. This is a session beer for me and I can drink it quickly and with much enjoyment. This is a great beer, nothing that's redefining a style, but something that makes me happy every time.
Serving type: on-tap
