Hop-a-lot-amus

12 oz single.
A hazed and murky orange brown body results from an aggressive pour. Small head with decent retention forms quickly to leave some decent lace. Looks OK but body and color is not really attractive.
Nose and tastes are a largish, fragrant hop based assault with decent malts but ultimately even out to be just a bit “blah”. Frankly we’ve seen it all before with these over-hopped, off balance DIPA’s and this is just another that’s gonna get lost in the mix for me. Lots of pine and really not much else, it’s strange how beers like this seem to have captured the American palate. It must be the effect of prohibition and the bland macro water that dominates the scene.
Resinous repetition gets a bit much for me as the beer drinks and ultimately I pour it away through boredom more than anything else.
