I didn't really mean actual malt sweetness. It's just that with that amount of dry hop, with no bitterness to back it up, the citrusy and floral aromas can easily influence the perceived flavor. And since we tend to associate citrus and floral with sweet, I think the beer will seem sweeter than it really is. Flavor is highly influenced by our sense of smell.
BMC has absolutely zero hop flavor and aroma so you really cannot compare.
I have never tried something like this, so I could be way off base, but this would be my concern if I was going to try this.
