Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours burnt orange, about one finger of white head. Good amount of lacing.

S: Pine, Citrus, Lemon, Grapefruit. It has a little more of the piney/earthy undertones to the smell than I've been used to lately.

T: The citrus and tropical fruits hit up in the front but the backbone is the hops and pine. Not entirely sure I like how it finishes.

M: Lighter body, just the right amount of carbonation.

O: This is my first IPA for FSW, only had Parabola prior. I'm not sure how fresh this is since I can't find the bottled date but it was still declicious. It was certainly a good DIPA however for the money there are plenty of better choices I've grown used to around Michigan. (Founders, Bells, Weyerbacher, etc)

Bottling date less than one week. Beautiful one finger head sitting on an auburn base. Nose is pine, resin, hints of citrus. Taste is citrusy with a great balance with the malt backing. Finish is fairly dry. Med/light carb lends a chewy feel. Hides the booze better than most, IMO. One of the consistently best DIPAs available year-round. No wonder I keep going back. Love that FW added the 12oz 4-pack format.

Bomber bottled 6/24, reviewed 7/29. Poured into a Bell's tulip.

Clear golden-amber, nice head and lacing.

Smell is a lot of nice tropical hops, backed by a substantial sweetness. Alcohol becomes a bit noticeable as it warms.

Taste is rather sweet and reasonably balanced. A clean mix of tropical, citrus and pine hops that meshes with a smooth malt backbone. Some alcohol definitely noticeable on the tail end. Not bitter. This beer is sweet, but not overbearingly so. Definitely more of an East Coast style IPA than a West Coast one, but it's really a good DIPA. Balanced, clean and showcases all of its flavors well.

Medium and sweet on the mouth, without excess carbonation.

I'm really impressed by how smooth and clean this beer is. It's not necessarily the way I like my DIPAs, but this is about as good and drinkable as I could expect a sweeter DIPA to be.
