Poured from the bottle a deep ruby red with massive sediment, hazy, and small white head. This smells of strong grapefruit and pine, really engulfing the nose. Straight up slam of hops and bitter, with no other flavors really coming out. Very one-dimensional and slightly disappointing, especially for the price. Improves as it warms up and the sweet toffee malts take some character, but outrageous amounts of sediment. Great aroma that the flavor just didn't live up to. At the same price point, I'll got for Devil Dancer instead.

22 oz bombah into a tulip.

Looks great. Deep orange with hints of red. Depth of color is fantastic.

Smells like HOPS. Tons of grass, pine, and grapefruit.

The taste starts out well balanced, but the sweet malt is soon overpowered. A bit grassy followed by pine from the hops which ends up over the top.

Mouthfeel is a pleasant syrupy-ness. This a sipper.

Overall, this is perfect for hopheads. I would pick this up again. Have it at the end of the night though because your palate is toast after the first sip.

The orange-red colored body was clear, and displayed a moderately active carbonation, forming a one to two finger thick, foamy head. The smell was everything I expected from a highly hopped beer. There were aromas of mango, hay, pine, and honey as I smelled the beer. The hop level in the first sip was teeth strippingly strong. The bitterness started at the tip of the tongue and traveled down to the throat in an acidic, spicy blast. The aftertaste after even a smallest sip was everlasting. This is the hoppiest beer I can remember tasting in a long long time, maybe ever. The label states something about a rich malt flavor, but it was undetectable under the glorious tongue lashing given by the hops. Mouthfeel was medium dense, and sticky. A must have for a hop head.
