A Smaller, less than 1 finger head forms and quickly dissipates. No lacing is left above a hazy yellow body that has some bubbles jetting from the bottom of the glass.

S Pine, citrus and zest. Very sharp biting scents come out to me.

T Very bitter through out with some orange zest and lemon. Piney bitterness comes out in the middle and some citrus as well. Definitely alot of summit hops in this one.

M Medium mouthfeel with a high level of carbonation. My mouth feels slightly sticky after a sip goes down.

O Nice stuff that is very bitter and not balanced, which I like alot. I'll let it warm up a little and see how it changes

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appears a dark yellow with an orange and copper tint. Has a nice thick white head that leaves good lacing.

Smells strongly of hops, lots of citrus. The taste is very similar, starts out with some sweetness from the malts, but very quickly moves to citrus and bitterness from the hops, as well as some alcohol flavors. Finishes bitter and the taste lingers for quite a while.

This is medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation. This is actually pretty drinkable. Can be tough at times because of the ABV level and the strong bitterness, but everything puts together makes this an enjoyable beer.
