Pours a translucent yellow with a one finger white head. Solid lacing. Nose is musty grass clippings and pine cone. The palate is super hop forward. Very astringent bitterness up front with pine and spicy hops attempting to peek through. Bitter finish is lingering and coats your mouth for a super oily mouth feel.

Overall, a typical one trick pony IPA.

A: Translucent golden with a white head.

S: Fresh orange, mango in the nose.

T: Delicious bitter citrus peel, fresh orange fades into a malty finish. Deliciously dry.

M: Medium bodied with a bit less than average carbonation.

O: Though it's not as good as Moylander or Hopsickle, it is a delicious dry IPA.

Pours golden blonde with a huge head that fades to leave some lacing on the glass. The label extols the virtues of dry-hopping.

My nose struggles to find the hops, though they are certainly there. Just a touch of pine upfront is all I can tell.

A short burst of pine greets the tongue. Not much of anything else. More malt-forward than previously thought.

Dry-hopping is a non-starter in the nose and the taste reflects it. You still get that nice lingering bitterness at the back.

Not bad but the main appeal is gone because when you dry-hop something, the aroma fades over time, the longer it's on the shelf, etc.

Bomber > Pint Glass

A - Pours a nice orange gold, two fingers of marshmallow head, thick lacing, looks great.
S - Big dank hops, earthy pine resin, biscuit malt.
T - Very pungent and spicy hop attack, mildly sweet malt, peppery .
M - overly bitter and spicy.
O - Meh, what a let down, this beer, is just overwhelming in spicy hop potency. Its just too much to enjoy, I couldnt finish my glass.
