Bomber poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a clear copper orangish color. Head is slightly off white and lingers.

Smell is very citrusy with a hint of sweetness and fruitness

Taste is is heavy with sweetness and carmel / fruit and a piney finish with strong alcohol presence.

Beer was too sweet of an IPA for me.

A- This is a cloudy orange copper beer with a 1 finger pearl colored head. Carbonation bubbles trickling up from the bottom of the snifter.

S- Huge nose to it. Has a very sweet smell to it. A grapefruit citrus note and a sugary lime feel as well. Its a complex smell. I like the sweetness to it.

T- sweet citrus and some pine. Not overly bitter as I expected with an Imperial. The hops are easily toned down by the sweetness. But there is still that touch of hops. A bit of bread in there too.

M- Smooth to me. Medium body with just a hint of syrup to it. But not too much that it is unpleasant. Pretty clean finish. Just a bit of hop bite.

O- This is a decent beer. Could use just a bit of tweaking to the flavor profile but very easy drinking and I would definitely get this one again.

Pours a clear copper-orange with a finger and a half bright white head, good retention with moderate lacing.

Aroma of bready malt, citrus and pine.

Taste of citrus, pine, sweet malt , caramel and a very light hop bitterness.

Moth Feel was medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth and slightly sweet.

Overall this was an enjoyable beer, I was very surprised that there wasn't a stronger hop bitterness since this is an Imperial IPA.
