Pours a foggy orange with a finger full of snow-white head that quickly disappears leaving just a hint of lacing on the glass and periodic carbonation rising to the surface.
Big, fresh floral & citrus hops highlight the nose. A second visit reveals a hidden sweetness, possibly citrus-like.
The palate consists of massive, chewy floral hop presence, pine, citrus, and a touch of sweet malt that is instantly wiped out by the return of the hop bitterness. As the beer warms, the sweetness and faint malt presence are slightly more perceptible.
This brew is big & chewy, with generous carbonation, and a pleasant burn that seems to be a result of the massive hop content and high abv.
This beer is frighteningly drinkable considering the intense flavor characteristics and bighearted abv. It's tasty to the point that you overlook such things that would slow you down in a beer with less to offer. Great Brew!

Small head, disapated quickly. Bunch of white stuff from the rim to the bottom of the glass after all the beer was gone.
Faint smell of a pine needle when you snap it between your fingers.
Leaves a film on your lips like chapstick. That was cool.
Don't really want to write any more words. Just trying to make quota.

Clear gold color with a touch of orange. White head that faded rapidly into a thin collar and wisps. Aroma is faint citrus, grainy malt sweetness, slightly piney. Nice hop bitterness, medium-high carbonation, medium-low body. Taste is grainy malt, grassy/floral hop and grapefruit citrus, very faint spice.
