Bomber bottled mid-May 2014, poured into a teku

A: glowing, cloudy orange with a bubbly, soapy white head

S: thick, concentrated aromas of grapefruit peel/pith and pine resin are the major players; i also picked up a honey-like sweetness lurking in the background

T: upfront i got light caramel sweetness, and then on the finish i picked up the aromas that dominate the nose; finishes very dry, quite bitter, and sticky sweet

M: thicker and viscous, yet goes down easily (too easily?)

O: i love this beer. it's endlessly crushable and a delight on the nose.
