A: Clear darkened amber with a creamy off white head.
S: Big hop aroma, in the way of grapefruit and lemon. Also a nice intense malt behind it.
T: Big malt profile, complex and thick. Tons of hop bitterness. Citrus, grapefruit, apricot, and peppercorn. Dry aftertaste. The top tier taste profile of any hop head's dream.
M: Medium body with medium carbonation. Intensely bitter, but no alcohol feel.
O: This is the gold standard... this is what started me into craft beers in fact. I looked in my reviews and realized I had only reviewed the oaked AB, but never the original. I always have a few around from time to time, so what better time to review when im feeling all nostalgic... So overall, this is an amazing, riddle of a beer that has an earned cult following. I would recommend this beer to any person who wants to get into craft brew, and I hope they hate it and grin the first time they see the marketing, but they'll come back and realize, especially after trying 90% of the other crap out there, that this is the top, and a major part of the reason the craft industry is so strong.
