Pours a crisp, clear amber/orange into a snifter with a one-finger off-white head.
Nose is massive pine mixed with grapefruit. Pure hops. A bit of alcohol warmth as it warms but not much else to speak of.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to low carbonation. Silky and oily throughout.
Taste is big, bitter, piney hops. I'm reviewing this on the second half of the bomber and I'm not sure my obliterated taste buds can even find anything else of note. This is a big hop bomb. A little bit of caramel malt trying meagerly to balance things out and being beaten back by the hop monster.
Drinkability is fine for what it is, but I wouldn't want to have anything I expected to enjoy after this. This one finishes off the night so my tongue can attempt to get a full night's rest and recover.
Overall this is just a balls-to-the-wall extreme American IIPA. I'm enjoying this one bomber for what it is, but wouldn't come back for more of this on a regular basis. This will probably stick in the memory for a while as the most bitter, face-sucking, tongue-destroying hop bomb I've ever had. I'm going to have a hard time rating this, because I do love me some hops and it IS a very interesting appendage to the "extreme" beer movement, but when it comes right down to it, it's a tough one to enjoy.
