Floral, hop bursting, carmelly goodness. The unfiltered aspect is troubling as I don't tend to prefer beer that has garbage swirling around in it. I can excuse it because this beer is just so good. The smell is loud, hoppy and floral. The mouthfeel is a bit citrusy and dirty but not bad. Drinkability is average; you can't taste the alcohol but the thickness keeps this from being a chug beer.

Nice appearance and mouthfeel, but the taste left me unimpressed.
If you're a hop-head, you'll like this one. If you like balance or complexity, not so much. (I like balance, so while I can appreciate the resinous, tangy hops, it was too one-dementional for my palate.)
