12oz bottle poured into snifter.

Pours cloudy burnt orange, with a 1 finger off white head. Lots of earthly bitterness in the nose, with a little bit of pine in there as well. Grapefruit is there too, but mostly hidden. The taste is rather surpising, the bitterness is there but so is a impressive malt backbone that fights back just as hard as the hops. The bitterness does win out in the end with a bitterness kick that just keeps hanging around. I've always seen this beer at the store, but for some reason I always pass it by. Not this time, thankfully. This is one of the better IPAs I've had in a long time.
