Look: It pours yellow with a large off white head.

Smell: There are aromas of caramel, perfume, floral elements, citrus, and orange.

Taste: It has a bitter start with floral flavors, some perfume, a bit of caramel sweetness, and orange.

Feel: It has a moderate feel with moderate carbonation with the floral elements carrying well into the finish.

Overall, this is a bitter beer that features the floral and perfume elements with the caramel and other flavors in support roles.

Bomber > tulip glass

A - Hazy gold with a two finger foamy white head, medium lacing.
S - Pine and orange juice, grapefruit, green pepper, some peach, big maltiness.
T - Wow, not expecting the massive bitterness and the huge malt presence, all you taste is malt, big bitter soapy pine bitterness and alcohol.
M - Lingering soapy bitterness, alcohol burn.
O - Aroma wasnt bad but what the heck happened here?! This tastes atrocious.

Very light for a 2IPA, aroma good of pine & citrus. Taste is bitter over some malt and the pine & citrus. Strong body, alcohol comes through.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a snifter

L - Amber/golden color, small head that stuck around

S - Citrusy hops, a hint of malt and funk just barely present

T - Explosion of hops, then malt takes over and dominates

F - Juicy at first then dry finish, harsh malt aftertaste

O - Decent DIPA, 10% hidden but malt taking over on the finish isn't my favorite

nice hoppy beer. Blend of 5 hops I think. Complex. Profiles evens out a little more as it warms.

Poured into a Double Barley can shaped glass. Label says Bottling Date: 03/24/16.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. This is the second pour from the bottle so there is sediment suspended in the body. Semi-resilient lacing leaves large clots behind.

S- Citrusy hop aroma with a bit of pine thrown in as well. Malt is present but only mildly so. Nearly no alcohol fume which is impressive.

T- Assertive bitterness right from the get-go. Lots of resinous piney notes. This is probably all due to the sediment being introduced which I now sort of regret because it's borderline astringent.

M- Sharp and dry with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- The first pour from this bottle was quite a bit more enjoyable than the second. I suggest retaining the sediment for best results. A very good DIPA with emphasis on the pine and earthy tones.
