Pour: A clear bronze with about a fingers worth of head with good retention and nice lacing.

Aroma: Biscuity malt backbone, with a ton of hops up front. Resinous, cut grass, and some grapefruit. Hints of alcohol.

Taste: Similar to the aroma with a strong biscuity malt backbone followed by powerful hops. Sticky and resiny at the front, bitter at the back, but pleasantly so. Decent carbonation levels, and a lighter mouthfeel than expected, though not watery. Delicious and refreshing.

Overall: This beer lives up to the hype, in my opinion. Well balanced, but still hoppy and bitter. A nice combination of hop flavors here that compliment the malt backbone. An excellent beer. I’m glad I finally grabbed some.
