1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle courtesy of thirdeye11. Light orange. Big hop response with a sour hop odor. Very hoppy with turns sour immediately. Not good, but oppressive. Not sure why I got such a different impression from others at the same tasting. Maybe it was the box of extreme warheads I shotgunned before coming in. Who knows
