3.35/5 rDev -20.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Pours a hazy orange with a thin head. Aroma is sweet and juicy hops, nicely malty without being too bitter or pungent.
Taste is a rich, oily pungent hop base. Not a friendly, chirpy citrus hop -- this has some seriously dark and strong bitterness, like the time your first wife met your new wife. Some mandarin oranges macerated in syrup, a decent caramel malt backbone, reminds me of a good rye beer.
Mouthfeel is heavy, resiny, can't drink this too fast. No trace of alcohol, just a thick, juicy bitterness keeping it in check. It has a really raw quality that puts me off just a little, maybe just a bit too sweet. Nice, but I prefer my hop-bombs with just a little more lightness . like a Bigfoot.
