A: Orange gold hue with head that looks like the surface of the moon. A little hop haze going on, which has me kind of excited.
S: Could smell it as soon as I popped the bottle. Citrusy hop aroma along with a hint of malty sweetness.
T: To cram this many hops in there and to have the beer still taste good is quite impressive. None of the soapy hop tastes I have experienced with some beers. The bittering hops and the flavor / aroma hops are separated well and show up after one another.
MF: Good body on this one. Lays down a nice blanket for the hops to dance on.
D: A good beer, but it would be tough to drink a lot of them. Certainly a good specimen for major hop loads. Better than others in the category.
Serving type: bottle
