Notes & Commercial Description:

A true hop bomb brewed plenty of Columbus and Mt Hood hops for a piney hop character. Premium Pale, Honey and Munich malt make this beer a little less malty but packing plenty of hop punch.

Pours a cloudy deepish-gold color with a one finger head which leaves pretty rapidly leaving gorgeous lacing all around. Aroma is pf pine, hops, resin, grapefruit. Taste is balanced well between hops, grapefruit, citrus, bitterness and malt sweetness. Wow, that was a mouthful. Feels great going down though would like a little more carbonation, seems a little flat. I cannot read what I think is some type of bottling date/code?. It is minute and blends into colors of the label. Overall, a good balanced beer lacking a little bubbles. Also, now as I am about half way through, I am getting just a little touch of alcohol taste.
