Pours a cloudy bronze color out of the 22oz bomber. There are yeasty floaters suspended in the body of the beer. The two finger white head is thick and leaves plenty of trails of large-bubbled lacing.
The smell is dry, more woody than piny, very pleasing to the olfactory senses.
The taste--I know this is a hop bomb, and I love hop bombs and include Bell's Hopslam as one of my faves beers in the world (if not the fave). Yet, I think one is a bit overbearing and kind of a one-trick pony. It's very phenolic, plenty of cherry cough syrup and dirty band-aid but not as much of the pine and citrus notes I enjoy so much in other hop bombs.
On the mouth you get a bit of a sweet syrupy kick on the front, then it dries out into a woody finish with a slight metallic, battery-like finish.
Not terrible, but not in the upper echelon of the style.
