The beer is a clear dark golden color with a small white head and a great lace. The smell is a great floral/spicy hop bitterness. The taste starts off with a nice hearty malt background and then the hops come and announce, very loudly, their presence. Nice citrusy and slightly spicy bitterness that is well balanced by the established malt backbone. There is a lingering tingly hop taste on the tongue for several minutes after drinking the beer. The brew is slick and dry and very drinkable. For my first few sips I wasn't crazy about the very abrupt change from malt to hop flavor in the taste, but with every sip I loved it more and more. It definitely grew on me and I would suggest this to any hop heads. As a not this one was brewed by Otter Creek in Vermont.
