Picked up a bomber from Loews in Banner Elk, NC yesterday for $6.99. No bottling date visible.

Beer poured orange with a very nice white head that is leaving lacing.

Nose has hints of citrus.

Taste is citrus hops forward which slightly wins out over the large malt base.

Mouthfeel is full and smooth.

Overall this is a nice east coast double IPA that stands by the traditional approach of the grapefruit focus - recommended for fans of this style.

Look: Hazy orange body
Smell: Mango, apricot, melon, orange, passionfruit, coriander, pepper, malt
Taste: Candied tropical fruit, malt, hops
Feel: A little syrupy, not super carbonated
Hops are in the background in this one, drowned out by malt sweetness and something tart that isn't what I normally expect from an IPA. Wish it were brighter but it's good. Glad I'm splitting the bomber because it would be a lot to finish myself. SO likes this one a lot
