Poured from a 12oz bottle into a SA perfect pint.
I've always heard a lot of buzz about this but didn't actually know anything about other than it was supposed to be good. So in essence walked out of the store with absolutely no idea what I had bought. Thought it was a bit light when I started to pour and was a bit disappointed as I wasn't in the mood for something subtle. First wiff immediately alleviated my disappointment. Tons of hop character in the nose, predominately citrus tones with some tropical fruits. Taste is what a hop bomb should always be, tons of hop flavor and bitterness but not overdone. Citrusy hops are front and center again with a buttery malt sweetness holding it all together. Mouthfeel is about what you would expect for the style and the alcohol is well hidden. Always happy to try a beer that actually lives p to then hype.

4.23/5 rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: Bright brass-colored hue with a tuck white head and great lacing
S: Lots of citrus hop aromas up front--grapefruit with some tropical fruits lingering; some sweet malts but mostly this is a fruity hop bomb
T: Not as much tropical fruits in the flavor--quite bitter and still some citrusy grapefruits hops but also some grassy and dank hop flavors with a subtle sweet malty undertone underneath
F: Nice body and even a bit chewy and oily
O: A bitter hop bomb; this is a great beer but I would love it to just have a bit more of a sweet malty undertone to bring just a tad more balance
