9th May 2015: bomber into a stemmed tulip (twice) at my daughters house in Orange County. No sediment in the first pour, still a cloudy looking orange, the head a white blanket that soon became a thin wispy covering and a collar. The second pour I allowed the sediment into the glass: murkier and even more hoppy! Floral hop aroma with a spicy/piny touch, some citrus traces also. Hops to the fore in the taste also, crisp, bitter and sharp in nature. Gets more bitter as it warms in the glass: this is a real hop bomb in every sense, no room for any maltiness from what I could taste. A bit of a hop monster for my delicate English palate, but I really enjoyed it’s boldness and hoppy nature. I must be warming to these ’West Coast’ hoppy brews.

Maybe this is newb comment to say but the aroma mocks the smell of a nicely trimmed fresh bud straight off of a Mexican marijuana cartel farm located deep in the California mountains. Appearance= golden yellow. Taste is rich in grapefruit. Very happy, I mean hoppy with faint lemon signatures. Palate is so bitter and harsh it makes you want to punch a baby. Overall 18/20 when chink-eyed but 12/20 when sober. Thanks.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium fluffy off white head. Aroma of floral notes, caramel, Munich malts and faint orange. Taste is more on the caramel malty side than hoppy, although hops are present. Definitely German malts, with hints of orange citrus and floral notes in the taste. On the sweet side.
