Consumed 6/14/2010, reviewed from notes.
Pours a deep copper color, nice clarity, with a 1.5 cm head on top, composed of loose bubbles that stick around for a liittle bit. The smell is just like pure pungent hops and resin. I'm reaching to pull out some of the subtler fruity notes that some of these hops can have. I get a lot of oniony, herbal smells. But a little sweet orange peeks through. The bitterness is held surprisingly in check, by the maltiness I suppose, but I don't detect much in the way of malt. There's a sharp floral note, like breating in the pollenated spring air, backed up with a huge sticky resinous wash over in the end. I can also get some lemon, more subtle citrus fruit, mixed in with a bit of grassiness. The body is nice, it has that sticky dryness I like, with a good bite of carbonation. This beer is pretty good, though I imagine that it's probably lost something even by this point (I'm guessing it's a one-off). The pungent hops win, but still it doesn't swing the way of GUBNA. I think it's an alright beer in a heavy-hitting style.

Pours an amber with nice head and lacing.
Nose is real potent hops. I get mint, a slightly candied NZ hop quality. Red fruit hops. Mango.
Taste is similar, NZ-y hops over a grainy, slightly cereal-y background. A slightly chlorine-y malt presence.
Mouthfeel is substantial- chlorine-y, pine-y malt.
This is a really solid beer; not classically American style, it could easily pass as an American Strong Ale.
Main detraction is a slightly dry alcoholic finish. Other than that it's got a pretty unique/distinct profile but no doubt there's a lot of flavour.
