Pours a hazy copper to orange body with golden hues beneath the velvety white head, which dissolves quickly but maintains a consistent, sticky lacing around the glass.
Generous pine and citrus hops float from the glass including grapefruit or pineapple followed by a nice balance of sweet malt.
The flavor is similar with a more lasting malt profile and a tasty, tongue coating hop resin that includes the citrus and pine notes previously mentioned.
Medium to fuller in body with medium carbonation and a lingering resiny finish.
This is a nice balanced beer and the 9.2% abv is buried in here. The hop bite is nice and offset by the sweet malt towards the back of the tongue. Well done.

A: not much head, nice lacing though. Dark amber in color
S: maybe I'm a bit congested or something but I don't get much on the aroma.
T: very good. This is an interesting beer because the initial taste is boozy with raisin flavored like a Belgian double or something but then you get that hit of citrusy hops which finish with an intense and excellent bitterness. Good.
M: nice. Light and then bitter finish is very pleasant
O: this is a solid beer...interesting because of the booziness while still maintains hoppy character
Serving type: on-tap

The pour was a nice typical high IBU orange hue. The head lasted but only a few seconds.
But there was no question about hops here. Lots of different hops all coming out at once.
Once I got past the aroma, my first sip verified what my nose was saying. It was a nice dry bitterness, grapefruit, pine tar and citrus spices. But then, what else? that was it, there wasnt anything else. I wanted some malt to balance the bitterness, but with this beer, I just got bitterness without any roundness .
Even though this was a mid range IBU (70), the taste presented itself as being higher, but without a lot of the typical high IBU styles.
So, I walked away from this one with mixed emotions.
