Thank you BK for getting me one of these in Spain. Wonderful appearance; it is a deep gold color wiith mild head and mild lacing in my tasting glass. Smell is a citrus, pine, extreme grassy aroma that I want to smell. Not sure where the carbonation is for an ABV of over 10! Taste-hops-hops-and hops. Never knew there were so many options of hops but they are here. Why can't other countries figure this out. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation. Wish it could bubble more. Probably the weight of the hops. Drinkability is great but should take it slow. Would not complain about a cigar accompaniment. Cheers - make more please!
