3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle -
Aroma - floral hops, caramel malts, some tropical fruit notes
Appearance - copper body, 2-finger light tan head, above average retention, light lacing
Mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium carbonation
Flavor - light fruity notes, heavy bitterness but ragged.
Overall - Kinda like trying a super-super hot hot sauce. Yeah it’s hot but lacks flavor. This is bitter, but it lacks character. Not bad.
