Growler poured into a pint glass.
A - One and a half-finger white head leaves behind massive lacing. Pour is a very slightly cloudy yellowish orange.
S - Spicy hops, grapefruit, and a slightly sweet pine undertone.
T - Truly palate-ruining spicy hops predominate, but upon closer inspection juniper berries, spicy citrus, and mildly sweet malts form the foundation. The finish is more gentle than I was expecting with a mild hop bitterness lingering.
M - Mild carbonation, but creamier than most IPAs. But it works to keep the hops from feeling too sharp on the tongue.
D - Perhaps the ultimate hop-lovers beer, this baby is named very appropriately. Best to save this one for sipping or for cutting through some seriously spicy salsa (my favorite way to drink it).
