yeah Hopslam! i had to do all kinds of regrettable things to get 6 of these. packaged 1/9/12.
A: a slight haze on a vibrantly bright orange body. head is slightly off-white with reasonable retention. leaves some pretty lacing behind.
S: big stinky bag of weed. piney and citrus all at once. honeydew. great showcase of american hops. each visit to the glass is just a reinforcement of that. seems that way no matter how long the glass sits.
T: the bitterness is strong in this one. and throughout. there is an underlying sweetness, probably from the honey, but the hops are definitely the big dawg here. a very resinous pine flavor. similar to the nose. there is enough malt and honey sweetness to oh so slightly keep the bitterness in check, but like i said this is still a prime showing of american hops.
M: moderate/high amount of fizz. full bodied for sure.
D: wow, these are tasty. had to take 2 bottles just to solidify my review. tons of aroma and tons of flavor. a super big DIPA, but drinks well and is relatively crushable. only thing slowing me down is the ABV. 6 of these would be a good time.
