look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
With the cartoon guy on the label and the hokey catchphrases(contents: hops, hops, and more hops!) I was skeptical.
poured into standard pub glass at about 53 F.
Wow. surprisingly light in color. Straw colored. Clear. little carbonation. Good head forms immediately.
I don't know if it is just me, but i don't get much of a smell from this stuff. Very faint hops....
I taste the bitter hops on the back of my tongue, but it just seems like this needs some balance. The 8.5 abv seems pretty well masked. I can taste the alcohol but not like you would think. To be completely fair I let it warm up to 60 F or so and taste some more....not much difference.
Overall this stuff is decent. I would gladly drink another, but not sure I will go out of my way to get it.
Serving type: bottle
