20 oz imperial pint in a traditional english pint glass
Beer arrived medium redish copper with thin film for a head. No lacing at all.
Smell was pretty hoppy, with strong citrus scents and very little else.
I was mildly disapointed with the flavor of this beer. Large hop presence in the beginning, almost as much as an big IPA, but after that, there seemed to be very little flavor to back it up. The finish especially seemed to be lacking any substantial flavor at all.
Now, I know some folks who swear that this is one of the finest brews ever created and may be the reason that God gave us hops to begin with. And that's fine. For me, I'll pass on this one from now on.
Serving type: on-tap

330mL bottle, BB date June 2014. Got it just in time!
A - attractive burgundy colour, pours a thick frothy head that fades into a lumpy pale brown lacing.
S - floral (lavender) hops and resin, with a strong honey/molasses whiff.
T - dry hopping is apparent straight away - strong hoppy bitterness with flavours of pine and faint caramel and roasted malt backdrop. Bitterness slightly edges the malts in this one.
M - medium carbonation, dry texture, light to medium body. crisp finish.
O - nice mix of roasted malts and dry hopping, would easily drink again.
