Ale To The Chief

22oz bottle, gold foil on the neck.
Cloudy orange beer. Mid-level carbonation with a small amount of lace and a spotty, thin head.
Aroma is that of sweetish hops, perhaps even floral in their nature. It is not really aggressive.
A typically relatively unbalanced American DIPA. There is a nasty, dry and sweet combo in the hop presence, and a lack of malty backbone to hold the thing together.
Disappointing and not very good. Sharp, harsh and wandering bitterness in the finish. One and done here. In addition I think I’ve had my fill of these unbalanced, American DIPA beers.
Big, but not clever.
