I poured a 22oz bomber into this glass i got at IKEA. The brew is a beautiful golden orange color with a nice thick bubbly white head and a good amount of carbonation. A very sweet resiny aroma that tickles the nose. Citrus, pine and malt also very present in the aroma. Same characteristics carry over into the taste: lots of malt sweetness (pale malt and some crystal malt) this is all balanced quite aggressively by lots of hop bitterness. Great mouthfeel very smooth beer. Delicious. A damn fine California IPA. Go get some.
