A- Thick off white head on a cloudy orange body with yellow hues around the outside. Nice lacing that covers the top and sticks to the side of the glass.
S- Just a ton of hops in the nose. Smells like smelling a bag of hops. Ton of grass and herbal hops with some spice in there too. Some pepper and just a hint of caramel body in the back but not a lot at all.
T- Follows the aroma with just a hop assault on the tongue. Leaves a really big bitterness on tongue and has a strong grass and herbal flavor from the hops thats lingers in after taste. Some caramel in the back the slowly goes over the tongue but doesn't stand a chance against all the hops. I don't think you could put much more hops in a beer.
M- Full body with medium carbonation.
D- I think it is good but almost over done on the hops. Don't get me wrong I love hop bombs but this may be one with just to many of the wrong kind of hop.
