Pours a slightly hazy orange gold with a white head. Smells of tropical fruits, citrus, fresh hops, and light malt. Tastes of very bitter/flavorful/fresh/dank hops, sweet malt, caramel, orange and grapefruit zest, dankness, and light tropical fruits. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall an incredible hop bomb.

Yep, this is a hop bomb, no doubt about it. I didn't look at the IBUs on the bottle, but I'd guess about 100 or so. A check of their website upon writing this review yielded "A LOT" in the IBU category, so maybe I'm close. But as advertised, that's what dominates this beer. Good if you like the style.

A bomber with a packed on date sticker on the cap that reads 09/21/17. Pouring in a 12oz. tulip for the review.

Look- Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow producing a small finger of creamy white foam that slowly settles to a ring around the glass. Tiny carbonation bubbles can be seen surfacing. It resembles a wheat beer.

Smell- Dank weed, passionfruit, floral notes and spice. A hint of grapefruit and pineapple appear next.

Taste- Dank weed, fresh cut flowers, passionfruit, grapefruit and a little peppery spice in the finish.

Feel- Pillowy soft and creamy with a slightly bitter dry finish.

Overall- A very appropriately named beer as it is dank and weedy with a big floral and spice presence. The feel is crazy soft making this one very easy drinking IPA. Another winner from La Cumber!

Hazy gold color. Half-finger head that lingers and laces nicely. Lots going on with the nose. Strong scents of tropical fruit, floral, honeysuckle and mineral. Love the taste of this beer. Very well balanced between the hops and the malt. Strong flavors of pomegranate, pine, grapefruit and peach. Medium body. Nice medium-length finish coats the palate.

Pours a cloudy gold with decent head and very good lacing. Nose is hoppy citrus with some floral tones and grapefruit. The taste is just awesome, very sweet hoppy goodness with a refreshing citrus mix, a little dry and very mild bite on the finish. I really enjoyed this beer, the hops were so tasty, just a juicy goodness.

On tap at the brewhouse taproom in July 2017. Nice hops aromas; hugely out of balance in flavor and bitterness toward in-your-face hoppiness. I found it enjoyable, but not overly distinctive compared to any number of other huge hop bomb IPAs.
