4/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a Duvel tulip. No freshness info on bottle.

Appearance: Pours a clear copper color with orange highlights and a 3 finger fluffy light cream head. Nice lacing.

Smell: Sweet citrus, candied fruit, caramel malt and resinous hops. Much maltier and sweeter aroma than I expected.

Taste: This one features the biggest explosion of hops I've ever experienced. Piney hops up front followed by bitter citrus in the middle before ending with a touch of bready malts, a touch of alcohol and more palate wrecking hops at the finish. Aftertaste is dry, very bitter and long-lasting.

Mouthfeel: Medium-to-full-bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Very sticky on the tongue. The mouth feels like it's coated with hop oils.

Drinkability: Decent drinkability. Due to the nearly overwhelming bitterness, it's harder to finish an entire bomber by yourself.

Overall: Good beer overall. Moylan's seemingly set out to destroy palates with this one and I'd say they accomplished that goal. I would definitely recommend trying this one.
