Poured from bomber into pint.

A - Pours a nice clear, dark amber body. Thick 1.5 finger head that isn't going anywhere. Tight, fine bubble floating to the top.

S - As much as I am hyped up for this, the smell is even better. Fresh wet hops. Fruity and citrusy with strawberry, grapefruit, tangerine and a bit of lemon. Sweet syrupy caramel malts.

T - Oh my! Sweet caramel malt and bitter bite up front. Pine bitterness takes hold and then melds into the caramel flavor again. Finishes with the sweet, floral hop notes with citrus flavors. Grapefruit, tangerine, strawberry. Alcohol is there, but not overpowering. I am in hop heaven.

M - Medium bodied, slightly oily, but very smooth and almost creamy.

D - Great beer with tons going on. Time to order more.

Thanks to Westsidethreat for the bottle.
