Appearance - This is almost brown in color with a nice reddish hue and a lasting, off-white head.
Smell - The monster pine perfumed the entire pub. This almost has to be dry-hopped as the resin just flooded the nostrils. You have literally no chance of smelling anything else in this beer as the hops just completely dominated this nose.
Taste - The killer pine is just as strong at the taste as it was at the smell which I didn't think at all possible. This is a hop-lover's dream but for the more even-handed taster the lack of malt balance sticks out like a sore thumb.
Mouthfeel - This was just barely medium in the body and flat in the cheeks. I don't look for a lot of carbonation in this style but I would say that this was undercarbonated. The finish was predicatably bitter.
Drinkability - I really enjoyed the strong hop profile here and it definitely delivered on its name, but the complete lack of apparent effort to balance this ale I think was a big mistake. Hop addicts maybe won't be able to get enough of this beer but anyone looking for a well-rounded drink will be sorely disappointed.

A - Darker golden/red, some good head and lacing.
S - Hops, hops, & more. Citrus and grapefruit come to mind and so do a DIPA, some what bitter with a malty backbone.
T - Taste is super charged hops and bitter after taste (I like it), with some pine resin/wood back ground. Grapefruit and citrus also come through, again reminds me of a good DIPA.
M - Medium carbonation and some bitter bite/aftertaste, this is a drinker for the hop head.
D - Drinks great for hop heads, pretty heavy taste and overall great cringe/bite. I could have more than a few if I was in a IPA mood. Might be a little over the top for the miller/bud crew.
