Hopgasm

Clouded copper pour with plenty of haze and a nice, sticky head.
Nose and tastes simply reflect the style very well. There are plenty of slightly resinous notes and a complimentary, slightly slick mouthfeel to go with it that is appropriate.
Malts are in check, which again is appropriate but to me the combo seems somewhat tired. I’m not sure if the style is getting to my palate, but the beer gave me a bit of a yawn factor. Why not brew something DIFFERENT to make a mark? An entirely predictable (and in that light) disappointing choice. Slick bitterness fatigues the palate really quickly.
Grapefruit and pine are there, but a touch unbalanced for me.
The beer isn’t bad, but it seems so uninspired to me. Loads of these American IPA’s are all over the market so drink away!
