650 ml bottle. Pours a translucent deep orange-gold, with an off white head that had medium duration. Plenty of lacing observed. Aroma is all citrus, lemon, grapefruit, oranges and limes. Flavor is dominated by biter hops, this is a hops bomb, but its not nearly as biter as it could be. In addition to the biter the flavor has plenty of grapefruit and some biter walnuts. Mouthfeel is full and satisfying with a silky feel and plenty of carbonation. Finish is even more lingering hops, not a clean crisp finish. Overall this is a beer for people who like to push the envelope on hops, I like biter, but I prefer more complexity and a cleaner finish.

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.
