Massive hops punch you in the face with a crisp clean finish.

I put this up against the Kona Castaway that my lady was drinking and the Big Swell won. Bigger hop and better hop profile in my book.

Hazy orange pour with thin head. Pine and citrus hippiness dominates the barley malts. The bitterness lingers as a finish.

Even a fresh can doesn't seem to have a "fresh" taste
