A - Foggy orange with white not so dense head, and not a ton of lacing.

S - Lots of citrus but not too aromatic overall.

T - Huge taste of orange with bitter hops countering the sweetness and heat from the alcohol. Underlying malts leave a taste of caramel which gives way to a earthy hop aftertaste.

M - Medium body with nice biting carbonation. Oily resinous mouthfeel that lingers.

O - At first I did not like this. The initial taste of orange was too much and reminded me of brass monkeys from college. After enough sips the hop flavor, which comes out strong in the aftertaste, balanced the fruityness. Ultimately this is still a bit too fruity for my liking but still very enjoyable.

Bomber w/o bottling date/freshness info

Pours clouded darker apricot, quality looking khaki head, stays nicely, then goes to a fine bubble film and leaves spotty lace.

Tropical fruit nose with pineapple coming forward.

Tasty DIPA, tropical notes, lime, spice, more pineapple, well hoped with pine and resin, enough malt to boost drinkability and quite pleasant on the palate.

Love the style, like everybody else in BA, this is an quality example and well worth a try.
