Pours out bright yellow and sits a gleaming gold in the glass with a large frothy white head, lending good lacings all around.
Hop bomb all the way in the nose. Grapefruit, lime, orange, caramel, bits of crisp apple, honey and rose petal-like sweet floral tones.
Bright and invigorating hoppy freshness in the mouth. Boldly hoppy overall. Light, crackery malts lend a touch of sweetness which supports the big dosage of hop oils and their aforementioned citric qualities and is abundantly rind-like in its delivery. Quite bitter on the finish, and will be feeling it for some time after this bottle is gone.
Delicate and crisp in the mouth with a moderate and finely delivered carbonation.
This beer is to say the least, most excellent. Were it readily available to me, I could perhaps see myself taking to one of these on occasion--but nothing more. I like my hops bombs just like anyone else, but this is one of those beers that makes you stop tasting anything else after drinking it.
