7-4-13 Bottle, reviewing live. (first EVER Enjoy By, believe it or not)
A - Looks like a great IPA, active carbonation streams occasionally bubble through a mass of deep gold, opaque liquid. Head comes to a couple fingers of white, thick foam that retains well and leaves beautiful lacing. Looks delicious.
S - Wow. You can smell hops, definitely citrus and pine notes, with a zesty bitterness reminiscent of fresh lemons. Smells unbelievable, I kinda just wanna sit here and inhale the aroma over and over.
T - Sweet mama, that is a hop bomb if I've ever heard of one! And I thought Ruination and Hop Stoopid had the market cornered on bitter... Well this one embraces the bitterness of the hops while leaving some breathing room for plenty of that citrus zest and sweet background. Balanced is not the right word for this. However, if you're looking for a hop bomb from hell, grab one of these!
M - Goes down smooth, hits the mouth with lively carbonation and a nice thickness that doesn't overwhelm. Feels like an easy drinker, once you're adjusted to the hop explosion.
If you're not a fan of hops, you might go ahead and try it anyway. It could very well convert you. Or kill you, whichever.
