From 22 oz bomber, 2015 batch, poured into shaker/pint glassBulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Aroma: piney, citrus, American hops
Appearance: golden, hazy, white head with good persistance
Taste: medium bitter
Palate: medium body, sticky texture, bitter finish
Overall: A very nice "wet" and dry hop IPA. The taste comes across a little grassy/fresh hop-like. The body and malt/hop balance is good, but it’s still a slightly hop forward beer. The grassy taste has also has a slight pungent character, that I can’t quite figure out. Aroma dissipates somewhat fast.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy burnt golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head dissipated immediately. There wasn’t any lacing at all.
The smell started off with a sweet pine allowing some citrus to slide in to balance. Caramel backbone plays a delicate part allowing a sweet aroma.
The taste was moderately sweet carrying a dry bitterness to clam up my tongue a bit.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Bitterness is there yet dry on my tongue.
Overall, I don’t mind it but it’s nothing over the top. drsandman (1589) - New York, USA - FEB 15, 2015

Bomber thanks to Nick. Opaque peach/orange color with a decent off white head and lacing. Smell is grapefruit and bready malt. Taste follows but with a bit of melon to go along with it. Kinda strange. Slightly sticky mouth feel. Decent but I think this is slightly old.
