Bottle shared by Mike last night, thanks man.

This one pours a clear light amber, with a small white head, and a little bit of lacing.

This one smells like super bitter grapefruit, super resinous pine, a bit of booze, and sweet caramel malt.

This is definitely a bruiser- the malt backbone is certainly beefed up here, but it doesn't overpower the big hop assault- it's super sticky, with big grapefruit, some orange, heavy duty pine, cannabis, grassiness, and leafiness. There's some definite caramel here, but it's not too sweet, luckily.

This is medium bodied, with a pretty sticky body, and good level of carbonation.

This is an impressive beer here- it retains an interesting malt backbone, while still being a big aromatic and juicy hop barrage.

Poured from bomber into snifter. Bottled about one month ago (8/10/16)

Look – copper color with nice head. Leaves good lacing on the glass.

Smell – fruity hop aroma. Alcohol comes out. Peach or pear.

Taste – alcohol is present. Has some bitterness. Rich flavor. Complex hop taste.

Feel – Substantial. Smooth.

Overall – Strong bold beer with well-balanced hops and fruity aroma. Complex. Love this.
