22oz bomber from Smyrna World Of Beverage, Atlanta, GA, USA. SWoB nips in ahead of Green’s on this one.
This is indeed a BIG red, no doubt. Good clarity with the orangey/amber pour with some good head and some very nice, sticky lacing. Looks inviting.
Plenty of citrus hops in the nose and this is replicated in a BIG way in the initial taste. On first taste this seems like a big, West Coast hopped, resinous, citrus and floral DIPA, but the finish cuts in quickly to remind you of the malt balance which is also large. The finish is actually alarming sweet given the upfront hop presence. Huge citrus followed by a devastating combo of alcohol and sweetness.
Plenty of big hoppy burps ensue – a great sign. A very well put together beer. Good work.
