Bottle lable #7690.
Pours with a scrod chunker sediment loaded golden peach hued pour topped with a quickly settled khaki off-white head cap leaving a tight collar ring.
Bright effervescent nose of bitter lemon rind, tart candy malt met up with a slightly boozy aspect.
First swigs: Mouth pucker bitter lemon peel front. Rips up the palate with sandpaper dry sizzle. Unrelenting dry middle and dry finish. Searching and not finding much vestige of malt backing. Actually awl-kee-hawl bozzy warmth. Try drinking grapefruit orange marmalade and that would rival this Hop the Ripper!
Damn hot and bottered but delicious at the same time. Medium bodied with crisp effervesence. So dry that a tumbleweed fell out of my mouth.
Last swigs: Bright bitter sizzle 2IPA with a light malt backing to showcase a huge hop front. The 9.3% ABV is slightly evident yet somewhat hidden. Reminds me a tad of Pliny the Elder.
Thanks to SkinnyElvis for the bottle.
