A: Rather transparent, great reddish orange color with an orange-white head. Head is 1-finger, has great retention, and absolutely glorious lacing.
S: Rich hop flavor - grapefruit, pine hops, a hint of dark fruit, barley, and surprisingly brown sugar. It doesn't get much better than this.
T: Nice strong hop flavor hits the tongue immediately. Lots of piney hops. More barley background than many IPAs. Nice and fruity to boot - has a nice grapefruit taste. Not too sugary, but the brown sugar in the background sweetens it nicely. Aftertaste remains super-bitter, and has a hint of smoky barley. One has to LOVE LOVE LOVE hops to like this beer.
M: Really carbonated, medium body, mostly dry with a little oiliness.
D: Goes down quickly. I could definitely drink this in larger quantities, and often.
Serving type: bottle
