22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany!), pours a cloudy orange with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of resinous and citrus hops, peaches, mango, orange and grapefruit. Flavour is wonderfully citrus hop-heavy, with just enough caramel backing, subtle tropical fruits, finishing with a citrusy grapefruit note. An excellent by-the-books Imperial IPA.

Bomber from Oak Tree. Pours orange gold with a 3 finger off-white head. Aroma of bready malt with some citrus. Full body/creamy carb. Flavor is bready, mildly roasted caramel with a lot of citrus/pine/cat piss. Apologizing for the redundancy. It seems very fresh. And lush. This is not a harsh NW hop bomb. It is smooth, fresh, clean and tasty. Yum!
