4.38/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 22 oz bomber into a tulip.
Appearance: dark tawny color with hints of ruby; 1-finger tan head which hung in there well.
Smell: nice collection of citrusy and spicy hops.
Taste: not the hop bomb I would have guessed from the name; in my opinion, this is a good thing. There is plenty of malt backbone to give the hops room to shine; it reminds me almost of a strong dark Belgian. The hops are spicy on the front and remain on the tongue that way, but toward the end mellow out into a nice floral flavor. Great stuff!
Mouthfeel: nicely carbonated, medium body, and very creamy. Love it!
Drinkability: dangerously drinkable. Strong but balanced, this could get me into trouble.
Serving type: bottle
