Bomber purchased from Total Wine in Brier Creek, Raleigh, NC.

The beer is a very clear amber with deep orange hues. Not much in terms of bubble activity rising through the beer. About 2 fingers worth of off white head rescinded down to a film over the top relatively quickly.

Smell of light malt, apricot, pine and some grassy notes. It doesn't smell like a double IPA, nor does it smell like a typical west coast, familiar, but close.

Hehehehe, much more bitter than I was expecting! That it actually made me giggle like that when I sipped it. The whole sip is just a surge of harsh bitterness. I like it.

Mouthfeel is borderline dry with medium to low carbonation.

Quite impressed with this beer, will definitely have another(or ten).
