A- Opaque brown with orange-red glow. Thin, off-white head and great lace.
S- Piney, resiny, almost sap-y, brown sugar, caramel, and some pungent fruit
T- Pine, resin, apricot, sharp grapefruit/citrus, brown sugar, tropical fruit, strawberry, brown sugar, grainy/bready, burnt sugar. Lingering grapefruit bitterness should please fellow hop-heads.
M- Big. Chewy, syrupy, thick with the perfect amount of carbo to back it. I'm not usually one for beers that I would describe as "chewy" or "syrupy" but with the intense resiny hop character it works well. Also there's a bit of alcohol warmth, but it is pleasant and not overwhelming.
D- Drinkable for the style if tons of bitterness doesn't phase you. (and if bitterness does phase you, you have no place buying a beer that is named 1000 IBU) There is some alcohol warmth, but as is stated above it is pleasant.
