I was really excited to pick up some of this on a trip to Mass. I think this was the first thing I put in my cart. I loved Troegs Hopback Amber, and I'd heard this was an amped up version of Hopback. Bottled 34 days ago.
Beautiful golden-red color, perfectly clean-looking despite a boatload of hops. Luscious head that sticks around for awhile.
Smells pretty good for the style. Citrusy, but not a ton of aroma.
Not overly malty like a lot of beers this strong where sweetness overpowers the bitterness. This is a pretty bitter brew- moreso than I expected from the color. Not sure why this isn't an IPA as it's more hop-dominated than, say, 90 min. IPA. Maybe it's the relatively low hopping in the aroma?
Smoother than I expected. Dangerously easy to drink, especially since it's not as intense as I'd expected. I guess that's the problem with hype.
Still, a great beer that I'll definitely be buying again.
