A: Muddled light orange with plenty of haze, two finger tan head settles into a cap. Decent lacing.
S: Very earthy hops with floral accents. A lighter sweet malt aroma in there as well, strange clean smell...like soap.
T: Bam, this beer doesn't play games. Big powerful bitter hops, astringent even, but somehow I like it. Hop bomb of the first order, IMO. I have no recollection of any balancing malt profile. Usually I enjory a balanced DIPA, but for some reason this appealed, tasty.
M: Nice medium body, moderate carbonation, somewhat creamy. The hops actually have enough pucker to give a "dry" sensation to the beer.
O: Well done "hop bomb" if you're in the mood for raw bitterness, but doesn't get into an acidic tone.
Serving type: bottle
