Pours a dense, white head that laces well. Aroma bursts from this one; citric with a floral backing that is reminiscent of honey. Hazy, straw color. Starts with aggressive, rich hop resin. Lots of notes of pine and grapefruit. Builds into a nice, aggressive bitterness that tastes of citrus rind. Lingering citrus rind bitterness with a touch of sweet malt.
This is really nice. It's quite assertively hopped, but it really keeps the lingering bitterness in check, which I quite enjoy. This is the 2013, so I think the year or so of aging has mellowed this quite nicely.
