Bomber into a pint glass, thanks to MikeytotheB for the bottle, which sports the usual FFF shenanigans with some bad-ass art work and no bottling date.

Opaque and hazy golden orange with a billowing and persistent egg-white head that provides a full coating of sticky lacing all over the glass. Plenty of loose sediment floating around as well.

Plethora of citrus fruit and pine on the nose with hints of white wine. Pungent aromas of orange, lemon, apricot, pineapple and grapefruit are all abundant, with some serious grass as well. No malt any where to be found and I love it, west coast with a twist.

Flavors on the palate fulfill what was promised on the nose, tantalizing citrus fruit meshed with an incredibly subtle caramel malt backbone and an aggressively strong hop bitterness. Again, the white wine flavors advertised on the bottle come through to add a neat complexity without throwing off the entire flavor profile.

Medium bodied with a mouth puckering dry finish and strong carbonation levels. Alcohol is well hidden and will come up to bite you in the ass if you drink this delicious brew too quickly.

Overall, one of the best imperials I've ever had. I was a little disappointed by my recent encounter with Dreadnaught, but that was more than likely a freshness issue. This more than made up for that, Cheers!
