This brew poured hazy to the point of opaque from a 12 oz. bottle into my beer mug the color of wheat. Minimal head (though the pour was unintentionally smooth) but the effect this beer has in the light of holding a straw-yellow outside with a tan core is quite pretty.
The nose is greatly hoppy, with large floral notes and a touch of citrus. A wee bit of sweet fruit under all of the hops can be detected.
The taste hits you immediately: hops, hops, hopes, with a clean grapefruit flavor on the swallow. This beer's hoppiness can best be described as a fine balance between bitter and floral with a sticky-dry aftertaste.
The mouthfeel is large and expanding, with a nice clean finish that leaves your mouth parched and looking for more.
This beer lives up to its title, as it "ruins your palate" upon the first sip. That, to a serious hop-head, is a compliment.
