Reviewing this beer completely off memory, the flavor was a tropical fruit/citrus hops with a resinous quality that I expect came from the ridiculous amount of hops used. While the hop flavor was interesting I don't find the "fruity," hops to be the most exciting, and I remember thinking I was drinking some sort of beer with tropical starburst. This brings me to the malt, way too sweet, no balance with bittter specialty grains that could have made this beer more drinkable. The smell was amazing, and if you like the "pineapple," hop flavor in beer then this is for you, however I can't stop thinking that the malt choices were seriously overlooked by the brewer when formulating this recipe. This is one of those times I wish american brewers were a bit more formulaic like our european counterparts.
