22 oz. bomber poured into Golden Road tulip glass. Bottled on 7/1/14, drank on 7/25/14.

A: A very appealing gold -- fairly opaque, and with a decent-sized foam head that lingers.

S: Intoxicating aroma that fills the glass. Tropical fruits, some mild sugar and pine are all abundantly present.

T: Sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Those tropical fruit tones and sugary malts are at the forefront, with the pine coming in on the backend.

M: Starts off on the medium side, but gets a bit heavier as it warms. Some pretty mild carbonation and a non-resiny finish still make these very pleasant.

O: This beer is everything it's supposed to be; some amazing aromas and a hop profile that also delivers some great tastes, too. It's a very good IPA for summer -- finding a great balance between flavor and body, while not possessing alcohol content that's going to make it difficult to drink in the sun.

Bomber > Tulip Glass

A - Clear yellow gold with a solid two fingers of foamy white head, thick lacing.
S - Amazing aroma, sweet malt, mango, pear, peach, some dank pine and grass, a little banana, very exotic.
T - Sweet malt and strong bitterness up front, then its orange candy, tons of ripe mango, peach, a little white grape, dank pine bit at the end.
M - Finish is on the extreme dry side. Mouthfeel is medium but bitter as well.
O - The name is what this beer really is, great aroma, flavor is good, but its not the best it could be. Glad to have gotten it though.
