Don't mistake my ratings for this being a bad beer, I'm just not a huge fan of the hop bombs. Yet unbiased, this is a decent beer overall.
A - Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small, clean head. Dosn't really retain, nor does it lace along the sides, but a few bubbles remain and disperse.
S - Floral through and through. Citrus-like undertones, like fresh lemon zest and peel. Definitetly and unmistakeably a strong aroma of hops.
T - Again, not judging as a fan of maltier big beers, this is probably what a HopHead prefers. Spicy, bitter, coppery notes, a certain earthy feel in the back of the tongue. The taste hits you full force in the middle of the mouthful and continues through to the aftertaste. It's getting harder to describe this type of beer because they all taste the same to me!
M - Thick, viscous; past water but not quite oil. Creamy almost. Spiciness burns a bit if you hold it on the tongue too long.
D - If hops float your boat, consider this your Pacific Ocean. Brawny and full of hops muscle.
