Aromas of piney hops and caramel hops.thick-bodied and heavy on the alky. Not as citrus and pleasant as the best DIPAs.

$ 7.99 Bomber at Wegmen’s, Erie, PA
Bomber at 40 degrees into SA lager glass
Aroma initially citrus which quickly fades
Head average (3 cm), off white, frothy, diminishing to 3 mm layer
Lacing good – very wide partial rings of tiny bubbles, some medium islands
Body medium amber, hazy
Flavor begins with a light nondescript generic bitterness reminiscent of a pale ale and ends slightly sweet. No alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl.
Palate light to medium, watery, soft carbonation.

Appearance 3.75, Aroma 3.5, Flavor 3, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.4375
Kinda hard to accurately evaluate this beer – not as hoppy as expected for a DIPA but still pretty decent. Very easy drinking and not at all similar to a barley wine which many old DIPAs resemble. More like a non-aggressive pale ale.

22 oz bottle. no date, but I just visited the brewpub and it was released this week, and bought from the fridge at the brewpub, so super fresh.

appears a crystal clear copper color, with bright white head. good head retention and rings of lacing cling to the glass as I drink. very nice bright hop aroma - a bit earthy, a little piney. taste starts a little sweet, ends slightly bitter, lingering aftertaste of hops. a bit piney, resinous. good flavor, just enough malt to balance. medium body, but a bit sticky tasting. coats the mouth.

overall - compared to most of Lancaster's offerings, this stands out
