A: Giant off-white tan head on a hazy and dark amber-colored beer. Excellent retention and very attractive rings of lace are left behind.
S: Initial aromas suggest caramel malts, and then quickly fade to a strong smell of citrus and pine hops, coupled with spicy yeast notes.
T: Taste is big and bold of piney hop bitterness. The malts hinted at in the nose are not evident in the taste. Other flavors include a citrus hop character reminiscent of grapefruits.
M: Medium bodied, with prickly carbonation. Finishes both dry and bitter, quite hop-forward.
O: As a celebration of hops, this beer is successful, but it left me as lacking and being a bit one-dimensional.
