A: Clear, dark ruby with nice pillowy off-white head with good retention. Great lacing.
S: Big on the hops in the nose, pine resin, citrus, and spice (classic Chinook). The malt is very substantial as well, with burnt caramel candy and some bisciuty breadiness.
T/M: Nice kick of bitterness upfront, moves into some big hoppy and malty flavor. The hops are more of the big resiny pine notes, citrus, spice, and some herb. The malt showcases nice burnt sugar, biscuit, and caramel flavors. The finish is pretty dry, but has some nice sweetness from the caramel malt.
Overall, this is one in your face beer. SNPA made me realize that there are beers with a lot more flavor than what society would lead you to think. This was the beer that made me realize that beers could blow the roof off of your palate. My palate has tamed this beast since then, but I still find this to be a great beer to keep on hand at all times.
