Having this on tap at bdubs watching March madness! Had this first when I was brand new to craft and didn't like it much. Now that I've made the transition I can see what the rave is about. Appearance is good, dark bronze with an inch of white creamy head. The smell is kind of faint to me, but I do detect some fruitiness and pine hops. Taste is amazing at first with fruitiness up front and then the piney hops come in to counteract. There's a slight malt presence but the hops pretty much dominate the finish. Leaves a lingering bitterness that is at first enjoyable but becomes a little too much after a while.
Overall this is a great beer that I will becoming back to. The keg must have been tapped recently because this is so fresh and the fruitiness is amazing. Don't care for the finish too much but still an awesome beer.
