A: A dark reddish amber color. Big head and extravagant lacing to boot. Eye appeal is at pinnacle level, superior if you will.

S: The wet hops play the game well, and a matter of fact ends up as the MVP. Very hoppy indeed. The malt coagulates with the hops and form an essence of bliss.

T: A big bang on the forefront. Hops in nature come forward, then settles with some mild spice and tones of pine and citrus. Magnificent!

M: Bite a plenty. Little thick on the forefront, sippabilty is not a problem. Crisp brew with some punch sums it up nicely.

D: American Pale Ale or IPA is the question at hand. Hopheads will love this concoction. Its intense in flavor and will do the trick if you're looking for a fix.

Recommended to craft beer lovers and hop fans, both far and near.

Pours a pure burnt orange color with a nice thick, fluffy head. Unfortunately, the head resides too quick...but it does leave some nice lace.

Obviously, it smells intensely of hops. A nice surprising characteristic is a doughy, bread like aroma.

Pine and oily hop resins are easily distinguishable in the taste. It has a great, strong hoppy flavor, yet isn't overly bitter...I feel very few brewers can execute this characteristic on such strongly hopped beers.

It has a medium body and finishes clean.

Overall, great beer.
