Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass and a snifter.
A= Huge frothy white head. Semi-cloudy golden brilliance. I think there is an internal light emanating from the glass. I could be wrong.
S= I get mint, lime peel, and Christmas trees. There are some sweet but floral notes hidden in there.
T= Up front there is a very citric bite that lingers through to the end. This is accompanied by the Christmas tree. There is a little malt sweetness to balance it, but you may want to ignore that and bask in hoppy crispness.
M= As it warms the alcohol warmth weighs in, but overall it is medium-light bodied and crisp.
D= One bomber is enough for now, but now that I know where to find this, I will incorporate it into my IPA repertoire.
