Clear amber body with foamy head.
An old school Mike Tyson uppercut of citric hops assault the nose. If this had a tooth or two, it would bite your ear off. Second fiddle is some more resiny/woody hops. Straight forward with no room for malts or anything, this is a hop and hop alone.
Taste is much the same, no malts just juicy hops. A hop heads dream. This is wreak your palate for any other beers that would follow . Feel is suprisingly thin for so many hops, no sticky or oily felling.
Very rarely do I saw an IPA needs more malts, but this could use a pinch. I'm not complaining at all. I love the assaut, but some malts could frame this and make it even more punchy.
