I picked up this 22 oz bomber solely on it having a cool and amusing label (a man made of hop cones drinking a beer!). The fact that I'm a hophead and it's a double IPA was just a bonus! ;) Also noteworthy is that it is a 9.0% by volume, so it's a "heavy" beer.
Pouring into a glass, I notice it is very clear and has a nice white head on top of the golden orange color of the beer. The hop aroma is noticeable immediately after opening the bottle. The aroma is a piny-citrus smell that is very pleasant to my hophead nose.
Flavor is hoppy. Not a surprise, and glad it's not a disappointment (with a name like it has)! The hops are citrusy and definitely the major part of the overall flavor, which is primarily dry and bitter with very little malty character.
If you don't like American style Double IPAs then this beer is not for you. Don't get sucked into the cute label, just save your money and get something you will enjoy. If you enjoy heavily dry hoppy beer then this is a very tastey brew. Even water tastes sweet after this brew! I would have this again if given the opportunity.
Way to go Legacy Brewing!
