Hazy orange, nice compact half finger white head that slowly recedes to a sticky lace.
Really cool hoppy smell, fruity with lots of citrus (tangerine, lime, pink grapefruit), bit of mango, faint melon, faint berry, but also herbal, some pine, peppermint, grass. Caramel malt to hold it down.
A really mixed, chaotic hoppy start, with stale fermenting peach and tangerine, mint liqueur, floral notes, lime juice, bitter grass. Grapefruit, lychee, kumquat/yuzu as it settles, with a bit of mango too. A bit of honeyed malt, but not much, quickly pummeled by pine resin, mint, faint dill and bitter leafy hops. Big fruity-herbal mix up.
Aftertaste is really hoppy, an agglomeration of English and American hops, leafy, spicy, earthy and dry at the same time. A fermenting fruitiness (alcohol a bit too present), with oranges dominating some other tropical and peach notes.
It deserves the name, truly a "blast" of hops, but not one that seems tailored before-hand, just simply.. thrown in there. Still quite good, and i'm not really a fan of Brooklyn brews.
