Pours crystal clear golden, headed towards amber. A huge off-white head slowly dissipates to leave tons of sticky fine lacing.
Smells pungent, bitter earthiness, a hint of sweet malts, especially with agitation.
Taste is big bitter, even and unwavering from start to finish. The malt tries to raise it's head in the middle, but is crushed by the hop. A super lemon pith finish lingers to make this hop head pretty happy.
Medium bodied with punch and kick, sticky resin feel.
Not as much citrus as I was expecting, but I haven't been disappointed by SN hops yet.
