look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: very clear; copper colored; with a fairly aggressive pour, got 1 finger head that dissipated within a couple minutes; a little lacing;

S: really nice; strawberry, pineapple, and pine;

T: taste is subdued as compared to the nose; almost nothing up front; pine kicks in at mid-palate and it has a moderately bitter finish with almost no accompanying flavor;

M: medium bodied; lightly carbonated;

O: The taste really threw me off; overall, it's fine and very drinkable, but having a muted flavor isn't a great selling point for me; I will definitely try it again to see if it was the bottle or perhaps my palate;

Very good, hoppy beer, however not overly hoppy where you can't enjoy what else the beer has to offer. I drank one from the bottle and the rest from a rounded "Leffe' glass which allowed a nice full smell. If you like hops and can appreciate a hoppy beer that allows its other characteristics to come thru, give it a swig.

Live review. Big thanks to doomXsaloon for the gift of this fresh bottle.

Looks filtered, which I normally score down,, but it is a beautiful gold, topped by a massive, off white head that only gradually shrinks to a lasting cap, leaving slathers of clingy lace. Truly lovely.

Hints of tart yeast play with citrus hops and light bitter, and are carried into the land of perfume by some righteous grainy sweet.

Full flavor, with some of the super clean bitter hops leading the parade, with pine, herbal, grapefruit pith, lemon, all consorting across the palate with intensity and grace..

Very viscous, nice med. carb, crazy intense finish for style. A bit of a rooty build up as it goes, but considering the amount of hops, and I assume extract, it is pretty clean for it all.

Reminds me of Hop Czar. Yeah, that good. Nice things coming from Long Island finally.
