look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: clear; bronze colored; 1 finger off white head that receded to an uneven cap; very nice lacing;

S: all hops - tropical fruit;

T: like the nose, it's all tropical fruit; a slightly astringent bitterness kicks in at mid-palate and stays through the finish;

M; medium bodied; moderate bitterness;

O: a complete hop bomb; I with the bitterness wasn't astringent;
