COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Obliteration II is yet another dynamic Double IPA. Its aroma is intense with fragrant notes of citrus, spice, pine and alcohol. A sturdy malt platform provides the perfect stage for showcasing these high alpha-acid hops, creating flavors and textures that entice then intrigue. Obliteration II finishes with poignant bitterness.

Shared at the roundup. Nice bright orange color with a bubbly head. Aroma is pretty big. Huge citrus aroma and taste with some more fruit, slightly tropical. MS brews are nice and complex. Fairly balanced and has a little sweet profile too. Surprisingly drinkable for so much hops. Lingers a bit on the tongue but not too bad.
