Pours a slightly cloudy, golden amber/orange color with a two finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap. Chunks of soapy lacing left behind.

Dank, uber-fresh hop aroma with lots of earhy pine and sweet fruit notes along with subtle malt presence. The smell of hops fill up the room once I removed the cap. Pine needle and buds along with tropical/citrus notes and biscuity malt.

Chewy full body with a blast of dry, earthy bitterness that is excellently countered by sweet tropical and citrus fruit notes along with a pale malt backbone. Sticky, dry pine needle followed by hints of pineapple, mango, grapefruitand orange peel. Biscuity malt backbone provides subtle balance without taking away from the hops at all. The ABV is noticeable with subtle heat in the finish but it's really well masked considering the strength. Just an outstanding hop bomb of a beer.
