2.45/5 rDev -26.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2
Presentation: 12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.
Appearance: Quick to foam but not a gusher, bright and clear copper color. Fluffy lace with decent retention.
Smell: Wet citric hop, very little malt in the nose. Hops are almost perfumy extract?
Taste & Mouth Feel: Astringent bitterness kills the taste buds right away, soapy hop flavor weird hop character all around. Faint malt but the pungent hops just smash it away.
Drinkability & Notes: I even let this beer warm up to cellar temperature to get the full effect. I like hoppy beers, very hoppy at that this one lost me at the first sip.
Serving type: bottle
