look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Houghs

Appearance: Orange amber color with a foamy one finger egg shell colored head

Smell: Dank, funky, piney hops, citrus, malt

Taste: Super dank and pine upfront, malt, and a wonderful citrus finish and aftertaste that lingers

Mouthfeel: Heavy medium body; The carbonation is just right and goes down smooth

Overall: This is the most appropriately named beer I've had in recent memory. I'm a hop head and find this to be a big beer. Very bold and intense flavors. Really does challenge the palate. In fact, i think the initial taste was borderline overwhelming. However, the finish and aftertaste is so vibrantly citrus which is my favorite aspect of this beer. I love a beer I can still taste on the ride home and even once I get home. I don't say this often, but one of these bad boys is definitely enough. This isn't one of my favorites in the style, but it is quite an experience, and id recommend it to any hop head. Cheers!
