A True Hop Bomb Brewed plenty of Columbus and Mt Hood Hops for a Piney hop character. Premium Pale, Honey and Munich Malt make this beer a little less malty but packing plenty of hop punch.

Pours an amber orange with a thin white head. Nose is piney hops. Hops come through as piney and floral. There is a bit of citrus in the finish, and the mouthfeel is rich and a bit oily. Pretty good beer.

Can from Ogden state store. Clear copper gold color with a big meringue head. Lots of syrupy malt in the aroma with some bitterness. Bold flavor of malt at first then maybe some spice and then long lingering, piney, bitterness. A little muddled but fine.

Poured from bomber into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a golden orange color with a one finger head of creamy looking white foam. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a good level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is big of an earthy and grassy hop smell with a rather strong showing of a bready aroma. Along with these hop and bready smells, comes some lighter hop notes of a grapefruit citrus accompanied by some sweeter aromas of tangerine and a hint of a tropical fruit smell of pineapple and mango. Taste – The taste begins with a rather bready taste mixed with a decent showing of some grapefruit and earthy hop. A little bit of a pineapple, tangerine, and mango are upfront as well, with these flavors losing intensity as the taste moves on further to the end. Along with the loss of the tropical fruit, comes some herbal and more earthy hop tastes. This all results in a more dry and dankly hopped taste, and with a hint of a warming alcohol that comes at the end, one is left with a rather dank and crisp taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. While for a 2xIPA I usually like a bit more thickness and less carbonation, for the drier and more dank taste profile, the thinness and more light nature of the body were actually rather complimenting. Overall- A rather nice more dankly hopped Imperial IPA. This was a rather enjoyable brew overall.

Great choice. It had a great amount of Hops but not too much and over-bearing. So good with a quality pizza.
