22 ounce bomber poured into a snifter. Thanks to SanFranJake for this opportunity!

A: Pours a hazy dark orange color with a one finger head and nice lacing.

S: Citrus and floral hop aromas along with sweet malts, grass, and a touch of alcohol.

T: The taste follows the nose. Citrus and floral hops up front with a nice balance of bready malts. Nice bitterness. The alcohol is barely noticable.

M: Medium to heavy bodied with good carbonation. Easy to drink.

O: I really like this DIPA. It's very tasty, easy to drink, and packs a pretty good punch. I definitely look forward to having this again!
