Apparently I was overly insensitive to the hop heads by saying that I don't like highly citrusy/pine flavored beers and it led to a completely out of control thread filled with people trolling, mud-slinging and such.
For those of you that helped, thank you. I am not writing this to continue a debate on hops or refuel a mud slinging competition. It's an effort to elaborate with new information. The flavor I tasted I thought was hops because, initially, a few of you were right. I just hadn't let the beer sit long enough.
Just yesterday I had an opportunity to drink a three Floyd's beer that I hadn't had. I absolutely loathe alpha king (a 3 floys brew) because it tastes exactly like grapefruit to me and I do not like grapefruit. This new beer was Gumball head. It was definitely hoppier than I like but it was drinkable. So much so that I went ahead and had a second. In the end, after all of the drama (god help me if this thread starts more) it was something entirely different than a hop twang. The hops flavor is almost nothing more than a faint background note (just how I like it) but it still has a funky aftertaste. At room temperature the taste is almost like a stale porter I guess? It was a strong malt flavor but not a good malt flavor something is definitely awry. The two or three that suggested burnt malt, I think you may be on to something.
Anyways, I'll make an effort to update all who care when I do my next brew (next week I hope!) thanks again for anyone who helped.
