22 oz bomber poured into tulip.

Appearance: Hazy dark amber pour with an eggshell head that slowly dissipates and leaves a thick lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops, hops, and... is that a faint hint of bananas?

Taste: that's an awful lot of hops. Good amount of maltiness, too.

Mouthfeel: slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall: Sipper, for sure. Should get me through the debate tonight.

Citrus, dark fruits, some bitterness, but poorly balanced. The alcohol content could be too high which in part throws off the balance.
