moderate off white head with good retention and a coating, sticky lace.Clear, amber/copper hued brew. Nose is leafy, earthy and lightly citrusy, notes of caramel malt too. Body is medium, lil oily, lil chewy. A malt forward IPA, caramel and a not so menacing hop bill that seems to work out well. Little citrus and pine with some decent earthy notes as well. Fairly dry finish, enjoyable.Bomber from statelineliquors.
