Notes/Commercial Description:
You are in a state of full Hop Delusion, but you knew what you signed up for when you popped this bottle. You knew that it had over 100 IBUs of hop bitterness and that it was dry hopped with insane amounts of Simcoe and Mosaic hops, but you chose to drink it anyway. It's difficult to say if you will ever snap out of it, for you have been smitten with the disorder that many can never overcome.

Solid looking. Burnt orange with nice head and lacing. Smell is orange, tangerines, and guava. Tons of citrus notes. Good upfront bitterness that rides on the palate throughout. Like the aroma I'm getting tons of guava and tangerines in the finish. Good tropical notes. As it warms toasted malt starts to overwhelm the citrus and is really taking away from the flavor. A toasty sweetness takes over. Around 3/4 of the way through it gets pretty taxing to drink. Heavy, sweet and sticky mouthfeel. Better than Rodeo Clown.
