Pours cloudy and dark amber with copious white head that recedes fairly quickly leaving decent lacing behind.
Intense hop aroma, heavy on the citrus side of things with a bit of spice mixed in. Slight nuttiness and maybe a hint of alcohol?
Slam bam the hops hit you hard at first and its easy to think this will be really overly bitter, but the malt does a pretty good job of breaking through the highly resinous and intense hop profile. Mouthfeel is dry and moderately carbonated. As it drinks, the bitterness does sort of build up in a pallate ruining kind of way, which may not impact drinkability, but certainly raises balance questions.
Very very tasty, and a great hop heavy ale. Not everything needs to be in balance to be right, and this is a prime example. Thanks to the BA that made this tasting possible.
