This heavy citrus nosed DIPA is a keeper. I always thought I didn't like IPA's. Its turns out that I didn't like bad IPA's.

This limited release DIPA is worth looking for. Has a deep straw color and smooth to dry mouth feel. The aroma is almost tropical. Really gets you in the nose. I wish I could have this beer when the Pollen was gone from SC and I could really smell it!

With a 9.7% ABV this smooth beer packs a hidden upper cut!

Go look for this and if you can find a bottle of it get it. This is not a hyped up beer from the toddler market in Charleston.

Big thanks to JISurfer for hooking me up with this. Bomber poured into a snifter. The brew appears a hazy copper color with a finger of tan froth that fades back leaving thick patchy webs of lacing effect on the glass. A swirl effortlessly revives the cap.

The aroma is chock full of hops smelling pine-like and resinous. Quite dank and catty with a fruity inclusion mixing with pulp and zest. Overall this is a very deeply complex set of aromatics centric to the character of the hops and a very mild inclusion of fruity to floral alcohol.

The taste is all sticky hop resins. Flavors of pine, pulp and citrus zest with minor grassy and dank appeal. A bit of an herbal component and a fruity to floral edge. The flavors here run the full gauntlet of enjoyable hop aspects with a minor hint of caramel malt sweetness and faint suggestion of alcohol.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. The bottled on date was approaching 3 months by the time I secured this to drink but holy hell was it still remarkable. I cant wait until this is released again, I would love to have more. A LOT more. So easy drinking and enjoyable, a bomber was a tease, I could have drank a growler of this and would be looking for more. This far exceeded all expectations.
