overheard one of the clerks at the local store call this a palette wrecker, so I was immediately intrigued...
very impressive noggin on this one, three full strong fingers tall of soap bubble goodness, slight audible pops as the head slinks back against the force of gravity, lacing and legs are quite visible here, a fair amount of carbo-traffic runs the boozeathon to the top of the glass, orange hue with a touch of haze.... this looks damn fine
dry bready and floral, I was expecting more citrus... shame on me, this leans more towards pine and coastal freshness, you know, like irish mist doused in pine sol.. but good. this reminds me of all the goog huge balanced dipas I have enjoyed in the past, it really doesn't slay you with a hop hammer but all the proper notes are hit. Maybe a touch more herbal/floral ? maybe...
where to start? superb mouthfeel, great initial bitterness, great lingering after bitterness, barely a notice of the ABV... and that was my first impression, it drinks light enough to more than sip and yet has a good medium body supported with just the right crisy carbonation, the bitterness certainly lingers a long damn time... some people might not appreciate that, but I am not some people... I dig it. This leaves a syrupy resinous (uh huh uh huh uh huh) coating in your mouth, some nice mix of complexity here not just a dumb hop hammer ("I can out hop your hop")
I have to go back and check out more from six point because this is on point... geezus, I sound like guy fieri reviewing beers... anyhoo, this is damn good, if you like 90min or feg's hopso, try this, it has a different flavor but belongs in that company.

Canned beer served in a pint glass.
Thick, foamy head which is long lasting. Off-white in colour. Leaves plenty of lacing. Cloudy, honey colour with suspended particles. Slow rising, small bubbles.
Sweet, fruity, hops, pine, apricot, peaches. The aromas are strong and hit you in the face on opening.
Bitter hops, grapefruit, dried apricots, mandarin, mint, and some caramel sweetness.
Cut grass aftertaste.
Plenty of bitterness and being high IBU, the alcohol notes are present.
Slight prickly pop rocks fizz.
Thick, creamy body, not much froth.
Strong aromas and lots of flavour. A thoroughly enjoying beer, and despite it's bitterness, it's refreshing and goes down easily. Plenty about it to enjoy and lots of complexity to enjoy on every sip. Hoppy and in IPA territory, but with more malty sweetness than usual.
