L: A hazy gold pour produces a 2”off-white foam cap that takes 5 minutes to recede to a thick, lacy, clingy film.
S: Tropical fruit aromas, a hint of citrus, and herbal vegetal aromas with a trace of garlic.

T: Big citrus, fruit, and tropical fruit flavors, medium malt with a light malt-fruit sweetness, finishing with a big grapefruit rind bitterness seasoned with a little savory herbal vegetal flavor. The hop bitterness is assertive, fairly high but well balanced by the malt and the hop derived fruit flavors.

F: Medium body, medium to medium low carbonation.
O: A big bitter elixir.

Looked frighteningly carbonated at first as soda - like bubble action in this slightly hazy burnt orange creates a foamy beige head. Luckily, the body is far more pronounced than what the pour suggested. Hop stank is big with earthy and grapefruity taste. Nose sells more malt than what comes through but we still have pretty nice balance. Yep, pretty decent this one.

Resiny with bitter malt and some orange flavor. Ok but not great.

A: slightly hazy; burnt orange in color; <1 finger off white head that receded to a thick collar; nice lacing;

T: mostly floral through mid-palate; at the finish, it's earthy, floral, piney, and assertively bitter;

M: medium bodied; moderately carbonated; lightly dry finish;

O: a true hop bomb in every sense;
