22oz brown bomber, no freshness date.
LOOK: Massive head, very sticky ... brilliant golden color.
SMELL: Hop resin, hemp, orange oil, citric pith, leafy, spice, alcohol, grapefruit, toasted grain, ripe fruit
TASTE: Very smooth, creamy, bitty, hop oil, leafy, tree bark, resin, orange peel, grapefruit rind, tangerine juice, yeast, faint breadiness, alcohol, vegtal, slightly bitter dry-ish finish
A great showcasing of fresh hops in a slightly bigger beer, a bit of a hop takeover but it did not take away from being quaffable. A great example if you are new to the whole "fresh hop" sub-style. Definitely wish I had more than one bomber.
Serving type: bottle
