Pours a nice orangy color, quite clear, with a modest head. The smell is hoppy and nice, though with a bit of skunkiness that I don't love. Taste is almost sooo nice. The great hop flavor is there, but the booziness is just too strong. If they could cover that up, or brew the same beer with a lower abv, this would be a really special beer, but I think it falls a little short of expectations because of the strong alcohol taste.
