3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Slightly cloudy pale golden body. Aroma has flowers and tropical fruity hops: mango, pineapple, almost rotting tangerine. Surprisingly thin and unmalty mouthfeel with big hop bitterness. Finish has oily hops. They admit that they just threw all their favourite hops (6 types) into kettle and the result is expectedly ambiguous - this is indeed a big hoppy beer but the hoppiness has no defined direction. I think the real sin here is Greed - you don’t need to use all the hop varietals you like at the same time. You can’t always expect synergy to happen when you combine random things: more often than not, less is more... I suppose it’s alright if you’re into that sort of things.
