look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into an Allagash cervoise glass. No visible date stamp, but I bought it at the brewery two days ago so I'll assume it's fresh.

A: A finger of tight, creamy head tops a golden-clear beer with light effervescence. Heavy lacing.

S: Smells like hop resin and marijuana. Intense and pleasure (to me). Lots of pine and citrus. Very West Coast.

T: "102 I.B.U. 4 U." And so it is. The hop extract makes for a clean, bitter, but somewhat boring beer. It's hoppy, dry, and tongue-scorching. This one will wreck your palette and for what? It's sort of stoopid. No much else to say about it...

M: Prickly, dry, and enjoyable.

O: I liked this beer, but if you don't like hops, avoid it like the plague. Blisteringly bitter in an uninspiring sort of way. I'd stick to actual hops rather than extract.

Poured from bottle into Grimbergen chalice.
Modes head on golden, clear brew.
Aroma of hops, grass, light melon.
Significant carbonation and full mouthfeel.
Flavors of grassy hops, white grapefruit, slight cream of tartar, pepper, roasted malts.
I'm not giving lots of flavors but that's OK because this is a straightforward hop bomb, and rather well balanced. I've had this many times and at this price point it's one of the best hoppy beers around.
