Notes/Commercial Description:
Hops have taken over the world. Permeated the senses of the minions. Hop Zombies now roam the streets. Lupulin ichor oozing from ravaged legions. Gorging, gouging, masticating. Salivating over insane hop flavours and aromas. The time is nigh. No more festering away in hopless oblivion. Join the HopZombie Revolution.

500ml poured to the trusty ol' Portsmouth tulip. Pretty fresh bottle - er - fresh for us in the U.S. anyways. 2 months old I believe?

Appearance - Dark orange beer with full clarity, off-white head. Thick ring is left by the end.

Smell - Big weedy forests filled with grapefruits. Definitely quite resiny and earthy with melon, mango and tropical fruits aplenty. Just a bit of sweet malt presence.

Taste - A bit more malts here with toffee and buttery bread coming into play, still well-balanced with a nice hop profile that showcases both American and NZ hops. Earthy/resin/grapefruit seems to be at the forefront, lots of papaya, mango and tropical goodness.

Mouthfeel - Sticky, lots of hop oils, medium-high bitterness with a good amount of malt backbone. Kind of a lighter feel than expected for the ABV with nice carbonation. Pretty drinkable.

Overall - One of the best non-U.S. IPAs I've had, and could probably stand up to some of the best stateside, pretty great all-around.

Dope looking bottle distributed by Shelton bros. Paid top dollar at a spot downtown LA

lovin the appearance right away.. It looks really filtered down to give it a clean look, completely see they orange brew reminiscent of plinys color. Small head that fizzes down rather quickly

Aroma is they the roof here. Hops that smell like mango, piña, and freshly squeezed tangerines. Wow the aroma creeps up nostrils as soo as the bottle is popped. Stellar aroma, full of hops

Taste is the same but a little more bitter than expected. Very enjoyable balance of malts and hops both turned up to 11.

Huge resin tastes leaves an oily bitterness around the palate. Not too strong tho. Never making that butter face -

Overall I'm so glad I bought this beer. It away surpassed my expectations as it's packed with all my favorite alpha hops . If you call yourself a hop head SEEK THIS ONE OUT
