this was a 22 oz bomber serverd in a chalice glass. I allowed it to warm 10 full minutes on the counter before tasting, as somebody had adjusted the fridge to be far too cold.
Beer poured a very cloudy (with rather large flakes of sediment) even though I was careful with the bottle.
Smell was charateristicly hops. Noticably lacking was any kind of malt.
Tasted like it smelled but only more so. This beer is very appropriately named. I tasted pure bitterness and nothing else. No malt, no orangy or grapefruity flavors like you sometimes find in very hoppy beers. The best way to describe it was bitter but yet strangely devoid of any actual flavor.
