Hazy light amber with some nice head retention, decent lacing. A boat load of hops in the nose, floral, citrus, and piney. The taste is an assault of hops that completely overwhelm the palate (in a good way). It finishes bitter and hot. Good carbonation and full bodied. It is a great beer but the bitterness would limit my consumption.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a brilliant, glowing amber color with a small white foam head that recedes quickly. Leaves a little bit of lacing. Surprisingly murky.
Nose leads with floral notes and citrus, and lots of hops. Grapefruit and pine are noticeable.
Oy. This one punches you right in the face with the hops. Followed up by some light caramel malts. Light grassiness and floral notes. Pine resin. Grapefruit. Good deal of bitterness, and a bit of alcohol warmth.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. A little dry. Slightly sticky, but still goes down pretty smooth for such a hoppy brew. Medium carbonation.
Overall, as implied by the name, this one is very hoppy. Surprisingly easy to drink. Strongly recommend this one.
