12 oz. bottle.

Pours a golden orange in color with a bit over a finger of fluffy white head that has pretty good retention. Great aroma, hops seem to jump out of the glass. Citrus aromas dominate. Citrus might actually be a bit vague, its mostly oranges. Floral, pine and resin notes are also present. Taste is like the aroma but, in a way, its a bit more balanced. The citrus hops that dominated the aroma play a more complimentary role in the flavor but still dominate. Piney and resiny hops are more prominent here and really come to the fore towards the finish when the bitterness really hits. This beer is indeed solidly and strongly bitter but it doesn't seem like the 100+ IBUs the bottle claims. Mouthfeel is quite good, medium-light body with moderate+ carbonation. Drinkability is pretty darn good, this brew is very flavorful and enjoyable and a darn good representation of the style. I recommend buying this beer in bombers or sixers because a single 12 oz. bottle really isn't enough.
