3/5 rDev -28.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A: Quite a bit of head, and a little haze to the amber body.
S: A strong hoppy aroma with hints of bitter grapefruit and orange with a slightly malty background, but just enough to notice, not much more. That strength fades fast though. This is not the resiny beast I expected.
T: Man, what a disappointment. If the malt is here at all it is grainy and astringent. There is no briteness to the hops at all. They taste stale, somehow. It does linger though.
M: Apparently all the carbonation went out with the head, because this beer has the thick flatness of a much hoppier double IPA with none of the flavor.
O: Not something I wanted to spend $6 on, especially not 2....
Serving type: bottle
