4.75/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Big sponge-like head that retains fairly well. Beautiful citrus/pine smell that absolutely screams hops. The color doesn't fall short of this impressive level of beauty either. Pale orange that brings the word "nectar" to mind. As suggested on the bottle, an army of hops invades your palate. The hops ride in on a a soft and smooth malt blanket, but the assault is not far behind. As is characteristic of these types of hops, very strong citrus/orange peel-like and floral taste. Very subtle maltiness. This is a huge beer. Obviously, if you're a fan of hops, you'll absolutely love this.
