Too me this epitomizes the US trend of going for the hop heads. I've had debates with a few over whether this one belongs in the so-called Imperial IPA class with Arrogant Bastard, Dogfish Head, etc.
That being said, this beer is great. Aroma is overpoweringly hoppy/floral. I need to ask Larry Bell how many different types of hops he uses. Definite grapefruit in the nose and maybe even some melon ? Has almost and orange tint to the golden hue as it pours. Taste is a real surprise given the aroma, very chewy malty taste that is then devoured by the hop backnote. For the me the balance works but both the front and the back are very aggressive and I can see how some don't like it. If you like this in bottles, seek it out on draught and you'll like it even more.
Serving type: on-tap
