look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22 ounce bomber -> tulip glass

A - pours up crystal clear copper with a two finger off white head. Retention is decent and lacing is extensive.

S - very pine, resin, and earthy

T - strong caramel malt presence with very bitter piney hops on the finish. A bit spicy too.

M - thinner than I expected for a taste that big. Good carbonation

O - loved this one. Nice and bitter. Not sure what the IBUs for this one is but I bet it is in excess of 75.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a pale golden-copper coloring with a filmy, light, thin, white head. Aromas of subtle citrus highlights, tropical fruit notes, and a rich, malty backbone. Some toasty and bready notes in the nose, as well. Flavors are bitter forward, very bitter, with a blast of tart grapefruit, some pepper spicing, and a toasty backbone. The bitter and tart is super heavy on the front-end, but does ease up towards the end, with a lingering grapefruit tartness throughout and grassy notes coming forward. The body is smooth and slightly light, with a bitter, resinous aftertaste of cedar, cut grass, and earthy notes. The finish is slightly effervesced, with a bitter and citrus tart linger.
