22 oz. Bomber

Pours a very nice cloudy dark golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight malt, very nice citrus, with some pineyness. The taste is hoppy, slight malt, very nice citrus, with some nice pine notes, picking up some nice bitterness. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a really nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very tasty brew.

A fantastic, big DIPA. Had it on tap at Odyssey Gastropub in Colorado Springs CO just last night (2.19.17) and it was fresh as hell. Looks and tastes like a proper DIPA, and the smell is heavenly (I thought; piney mango woods!). There's a bit of harsh finish due to the high ABV, but in a good kick-in-the-teeth Ninja way. I mean...after all it is part of their Ninja series. Definitely try it if you see it. My only mistake was having it early in the evening; everything else seemed way weaker and less interesting after that one... Delicious!

Hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma is juicy with overripe fruit notes and dank hops. Taste starts quite sweet with dank, resiny hops and some fruity notes. Finish has a medium bitterness and a hint of alcohol. Medium plus body, medium carbonation. Overall it's a quite good DIPA but a bit harsh on the alcohol.

Excited to find this extra in a trade! Pours a deep orange hazy with minimal white head. Mild citrus nose, taste is stronger citrus. Definitely get a little alcohol bite too. Definitely worth seeking out.
