I hadn't had a hop bomb in a while, and this one snapped me awake.
It's pretty, with a single-finger head and sticky lacing. Pretty clear and light, orange color. Aroma is the most interesting thing about this beer. I can't peg the hops, but it smells like some fresh mystery hops I used last year. Lots of pine. Maybe Chinook? Not sure. But it's so different from a lot of other Imperial IPAs, I love it. Big alcohol, and some heat. Not so much that I mind.
I wouldn't have more than one in a sitting, but I'll come back to this one. Very distinct.
