Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live.
A- Thick four finger cream colored head. Long retention, creamy and tiny-bubbled head. Light orange in color, nice clarity and carbonation.
S- Pine scented hops, full bodied and well balanced for a hop-bomb type beer. Grapefruit, honey, and other sweet scents. Nice smelling beer and not too overpowering. Near perfect.
T- Still piney hops, but predictably they become a lot more potent in the taste. Very strong, bitter-earthy notes, clear alcohol taste, like a young bourbon or something.
M- Surprisingly sort of a sickly thin feel. Extremely dry finish. Worst part of the beer in my opinion.
O- Great smell, above average taste and fairly awful feel. Glad I got to try it, but it was better on-tap.
