Enjoyed on tap at Lips of Faith Tap Takeover at Harry's Hofbrau San Jose, CA 8/29/12

A - Golden copper color, fluffy white head, lowish carbonation

S - Very pungent pine, tropical fruit, cotton candy, some grass. Unbelievably strong aroma from this one. Very fresh.

T - Aggressive bitterness supports sweet and resinous hop flavors. A lot of descriptors could be used here but suffice it to say the taste is just very, very fresh hoppiness and not much else. I nursed this for a while and I have to say it declined a bit sitting in the glass. That's the only thing I noticed that didn't like, and is probably unavoidable in this style.

M - Pretty hefty body balanced by bitterness and just enough carbonation.

D - 8oz. And I'm buzzed, so there's that... But as long as I can stay standing I can keep sipping this one.

O - Amazing beer. Need more of this!
