Great deep orange color..bomber pour into snifter..two finger creamy and foamy head..hops are jumping out of the bottle..aroma of piney..juicy hops and an overwhelming weed smell..wow..mouthfeel is top notch and hops really give you an uppercut to the jaw..coats the palate with west coast hop goodness..well done mongo..quite active yeast at the bottom of the bomber..bitterness is almost on the verge of overdoing it..but it stops short..extremely well hidden abv..this is about as good as it gets for the style..

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Deliciously fruity aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, peach, some malt, resin, caramel, orange peel, floral hops. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a huge and long bitter finish. Wow, this is close to flawless for a DIPA. Perfect balance between huge amounts of fruits and resinous notes, with a potent bitterness to knock your socks off. I’d like to thank the cat who inspired this beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a finger of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is grapefruit and lemon. Nice.
The taste has a strong dry bitterness, there’s supporting malt that keeps it balanced.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
A bold bitter IPA. Good.
