Serving Type- 12oz Bottle poured into a glass.

Appearance- A nice orange golden appearance with a little cloudiness, head dissipated but left a nice lace on its trip down the glass.

Nose- Hops and small hints of evergreen with a pinch of floral notes.

Taste- Intense hoppy bitterness as intended. What stands out is that while the hops are obviously the dominant element here, it is not so overwhelming. In other words, it's not just like you're drinking hop juice, it's a beer crafted around the hop flavor. Some slightly sweet maltiness underneath to soften the blow a little bit. Finishes bitter but leaves you in anticipation for the next round with a little bit of sour fruit once it has opened up.

Mouthfeel- Maintains its body throughout the sip, extremely smooth for such a hopheaded brew, and hits the palate with a vigor of a beer with much less of an ABV.

Overall- A treat when you're in the mood for a powerful dose of hops. More well balanced than a majority of pale ales centered around 1 or 2 main flavors with its body and drinkability.

A: Poured from bomber into a tulip with a very small white head leaving nice lacing all the way down. The color of this beer is a hazy gold and has bubbles rising throughout.

S: Straight citrus nothing else, it smells of fresh cut grapefruit.

T: Huge citrus/ grapefruit hop bomb with a light pine bite, with a slight biscuity malt finish.

M: Medium bodied with huge carbonation and a dry finish.

O: A very very well done beer for any hop head. Surprisingly not as bitter as expected, very well balanced.
