22oz bomber picked up from the Akron Brewery today, 3 hours ago, poured into SA glass.
Thin, white rim of foam sits a top what appears to be a thick, gelatinous, opaque liquid. Few wisps of Belgian lace, as the brew is tasted.
Nice aroma of orange rind, piney hops, caramel, grapefruit; not subtle, but not that amazing slap in the face expected from a brew that is touted as a "triple". At first whiff, reminded me of DFH 120 minute.
Resinous, piney hops and tart grapefruit, envelopes the buds.
Surprisingly smooth, without a bitter, everlasting aftertaste.
Yes the hops predominate, but this is no one-hit wonder "hop bomb". Considering the ABV and the hop additions throughout the brewing process, there is a nice balance and a, dare I say, smoothness. Well done.
