12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. pours a lightly reddish amber color with a couple fingers of off-white head.
aroma is, well, 'slammed' with hops. mainly aromatic, with a slight spice to the aroma, this brew contains little else than that. a note of fruity yeast accompanies the hops, with a bit of grassy hops as well.
taste is more of the same. up front, there is little else besides a light fruit from the yeast, and at the back is a veritable hopslam (pardon the pun). despite the large hop character, the hops do not overwhelm the brew, but provide a solid and strong base for the palate to work from.
mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a silky texture and a dry, bitter finish.
drinkability is decent. the amount of hops here lower the drinkability, but the smooth profile allow a few of these to make their way to the stomach without any problems. cheers!
