22 fl. oz. bomber poured into pint glass
A: Pours A nice cloudy amber hue with a full two-finger cream colored head. Tons of lacing and nice retention.
S: Huge piney and citrusy hop aroma, well balanced by some nice toasty malts. Alcohol as well.
T: Interesting. Tons of bitterness that lingers on the palate for quite some time, slightly astringent. Finishes with a weird pineapple-like tartness. Nice sweet and slightly toasty malts as well as some signs of citric fruitiness. Pretty boozy, this one will probably hit you hard. After just a few sips, I'm already feeling the effects of this one.
M/D: Smooth and appropriately carbonated. The alcohol hits hard, but is appropriate for the style.
Serving type: bottle

Served on tap in a 14oz glass at Heartbreakers in Chaska.
Great beer, who's 2013 edition is far better than some of the recent Enjoy bys. In a beer this strong, you sometimes worry that the alcohol content will take over the taste profile. That is definitely not the case here.
Serving type: on-tap
