This was served showing off a great golden glow with a nice full head, and it left big rings of lace.
Sticky resin dominates the smell along with light citrus. However the taste, while quality, is not my favorite. Stacks of bitterness dominate without all the ancillary hop flavors that I know and love. This tastes like what happens when I cook and reduce an IPA too much for the rest of the recipe. Bitterness is great, but not when it is standing alone. I suppose it is living up to its name of wrecking palates, and I can appreciate that, but I want more. More citrusy grapefruit, more malt backbone, or more sticky resin, this is a good beer but needs another dimension to become a great one.
Serving type: on-tap
