Thanks to burnheartsMKE for sending me this one.
Interesting concept off the bat with a whole hop cone floating around in the beer. Reminds me of the infamous and despised chili beer that has the same concept.
Pours a murky dark honey orange color with a 1/2 white head that fades to an oily cap. Thin legs of lacing form on the glass on the drink down. Smells strongly of citrus zest and pine. There are also some tropical fruit notes I am picking up. Taste is of citrus zest and pine tree hops with a sweet malt finish. Very little hop bitterness lingers on the palate after each sip. Good carbonation makes for a smooth mouthfeel but there is a coating aspect to this beer. Perhaps it's because of the hop cone floating around in there for who knows how long? I also got a "leaf" in my mouth that broke off the cone that caused me a bit of a gag. There is also an acidic bite with each sip that I can only imagine is from the hops. Both of these elements are not too good in my book. Overall however, this beer is pretty good for what it is. Like I said before the whole hop cone in the beer is an interesting idea but I would have liked less residue and floating debris in my beer.

Sorry Ralph, I couldn't wait any longer. Beer has a carmel hint with bitter hoppy after taste. The hop cone is a unique touch - adds to the bitterness.
