A: Pours an oily, translucent but vibrant yellow-gold with a fizzy white head that leaves some spotted lacing as it falls to ring.
S: Hops and hops: earthy, citrusy aromas with hints of herbs and a rich, fruity, bready malt backbone.
T: Extremely bitter. Flavors are earthy, pungent and overpowering. The fruity malt backbone is almost an afterthought. Bitterness lingers with flavors of oily, resin-like hop juice.
M: Medium to full bodied. Oily and slippery. Carbonation is fairly mild.
D: You're either ready for this one or you aren't. It's certainly a palate-wrecker, but can be quite quenching on occasion. If you're prepared for this beer, it's a world class hopped-to-hell IPA. If not, you may be overtaken by your glass.
