4.38/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: The beer pours a very dark amber color, almost brown, with a creamy head. There is very little carbonation.
Smell: Citrus (maybe grapefruit) dominates early followed by a sweet pine aroma.
Taste: This beer tastes much better than it smells. It's both bitter and sweet due to the ridiculous west coast hop injection. There is a sourness upfront which fades into hints of citrus and spicy rye. This ultimately develops into a pine taste. The aftertaste is extremely bitter.
Mouth feel: Very dry and spicy with the right amount of carbonation.
Overall: A very good west coast style hop bomb. Take a very good IPA, add some rye and more hops to make it super bitter; you'll get this masterpiece.
Serving type: bottle
