We're not dead yet, actually just getting our hop fix. Excessive hopping is noticed. The palate does not get devastated by the bitterness, but it does get taken over by the massive amount of hop flavor, so much so that you should not expect to taste much after knocking this one back. A worthy hop bomb.

Had on-tap at Barleycorn Asheville. Served in a pint glass.
A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Resilient, randomly patterned lacing.
S- Big juicy hop aroma that's musty and dank. Slightly sweet smelling.
T- The hop flavor is decidedly grassy and not very in-your-face but the bitterness is definitely there and lingers a good while. Decent malt backbone to balance that's a bit bready and sweet. The ABV isn't incredibly noticeable.
M- Pretty sharp and dry with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.
O- I wouldn't necessarily call this a "death by hops" beer but it's certainly assertive and the malt provides a near-perfect balance to the aggressive hop content.
