Had on tap at the brewery. Pours clear, gold in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is grapefruit, tangerine, tea, and biscuit. Medium light bodied with dry bitterness. Appreciate the effort, but the flavors do not mesh as well as other examples I have had in the style. Big pass for me.

Trying to wrap my head around the better reviews this one is getting. Pours a murky deep burnt orange, not aesthetically pleasing. Aromas are eerily reminiscent of iced tea, some pine buried in there but masked. Taste follows, bone dry ice tea with a faint belgian character contributed from a dark candi sugar addition. Not a bad malt character underneath all the mess, crisp and biscuity that follows with some of the pine notes from the nose.
What did I just drink? Strange beer for sure.

on tap @ Offshore a few weeks back

a: a hazy, light golden color. Thin head, good lacing

s: citrusy hops. Orange zest and a hint of banana

t: simply a citrus hops explosion

m: medium body and carbonation

o: A solid beer. The best I had at Offshore. Very drinkable. If you enjoy hoppy beers, you'll enjoy this offering. Recommended.

The Hop Goddess is a must beer for any discerning hops lover. Offshore makes some of the best hop tasting beer, and this is the Queen of them all. You can expect good lacing, strong citrus flavors with medium to little head. Like many of Offshore's other beers it blends the 6.9% abv well. The average beer drinker may not appreciate the overly hopped beer, so it may not be a crowd favorite. Anyone who loves beer however, should at least try one of these at it is truly a unique and tasty beer.

On tap at Offshore.

Cloudy amber with nice two finger creamy head. Better-than-average lacing that hangs on for a few minutes.

Floral notes hit the nose immediately. Nutmeg and vanilla round out the aroma.

Very very drinkable for 7% ABV. The bright hoppiness offsets any boozy quality. Yeast and malt take a backseat to the very aromatic hop flowers. Flavor lingers long and is well balanced. An IPA lovers delight.

Thirst quenching for summer but has the kick you are seeking. Would absolutely recommend.
