Pours nearly black with a very dark reddish brown colour. Thick, craggy caramel coloured foam covers the top. This looks absolutely fantastic!
Smell is grassy and floral and a bit piney. You can also pick up on the sweet rye maltiness a little, but the hops really do dominate the smell.
Taste is big grapefruit citrusy hops. One really would have to use their imagination to get much else out of this. This is much hoppier than I was prepared for.
Mouthfeel is silky smooth and perfectly carbonation. This really isn't my style or something I would seek out, but given what it is, I think Tommyknocker did a spectacular job on this one.
