4.33/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Resplendent reddish-orange in color with a fitfully bubbly light tan head that fades in its own sweet time. A fragmented and curly lacing is left behind. Smells like pure west coast oily, grapefruit goodness, and of course there's a bit of caramel thrown in for good measure. Right on! Tastes of pure big-time floral and pine hop bliss with some spicy and grainy notes as well as a hint of lemon, apple and cotton candy. Medium bodied. Dry and crisp. Slightly boozy.

There's been a backlash to the big hop bomb lately, chiefly coming from the session/sweet end of the spectrum, and for many good reasons I admit. Many hop bombs are poorly crafted, and rely solely on the bitterness profile with no care taken with other characteristics. This is not the case with this fine tasting brew. While the hops are definitely front and center, belting out all the greatest hits you came to hear, the backing band still find all the right notes and help put on a helluva show.
