Hop Wallop

This is certainly a popular brew amongst BA’s, but if you’re not a huge hop-head (as I’m not) this is obviously not going to be your cup of tea. Having said that I am glad that I tried it (thanks meathookjones) and I am trying to review based upon the style not my own tastes.
A very attractive pour with an orange, crystal clear body and a decent head. The aroma is all bitter citrus grapefruit and this is replicated in the taste. Unfortunately, the hops with the relatively high ABV is all I get. I don’t mind hops, but this is another brew that seems unbalanced to me. The hops give a mildly soapy taste to me.
It leaves a very dry, clawing feel behind in the mouth which is not really very nice at all.
