Not enough floral characters. Finished way to bitter for my liking, I was hoping for a better outcome.

Tap at the brew pub.

Hazy golden bright orange yellow color, little fizzy head

Nose is big bright hops, fresh citrus and mild tropical fruit notes, nice fruity grapefruit orange juice, light malt

Taste bright citrus fruity hops, like tropical notes, little grapefruit, orange peel, pith, turns a bit spicy and herbal tea like, gets quite pithy too, orange velvety cake like. Finish is long spicy earthy hops, chewy, pithy, etc.

Mouth is med bod, booze hidden well, nice carb.

Overall pretty nice, a bit better than I expected for so many different hops that I expected to kinda clash, and they do a bit, but there are still some nice components flashing through.

Enjoyed at High Horse in Amherst.

A - Poured into a standard pint glass a hazy golden hue with a one finger head that faded to leave thin side lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of light citrus, oranges, faint tropical pineapple, light grapefruit. Nice assertive orange zest, pleasant.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, quite hoppy. Nice grapefruit, oranges, citrus rind, faint pith, good light pineapple, faint tropical notes, nice light malts. Good bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

M - Mouthfeel is pleasant, nice carbonation, strong bitter finish.

O - Overall this beer was very drinkable, good hop profile. Nice finish alcohol hidden well. Nice

To start off I'm completely confused by this "brewery" that makes it's beers at Paper City in Holyoke but I digress-
This was just an average hop bomb, it was kind of fun to drink, perhaps some wild yeast thing, Bret?, going on in the background but there was no balance. Nothing made me say wow that is one interesting beer. It drank fine, it was mildly refreshing but over all meh. I know that this American hop slam thing is all the rage but this seemed to be hoppy just to cover up its brewing flaws.
