I poured this brew into a 20oz Otter Creek glass. The body is a really attractive honey golden color, and the head is frothy white, thick and sticky, and leaves a great lacing. Great looking brew!
I get a mix of pine and grapefruits on the nose. Loads of hoppy goodness in this one. Smells raw, fresh and aggressive.
The taste is piney and, again, grapefruity. Quite bitter. Aggressively hopped, but I could actually go for a little more maltyness. The brew seems a lit thinner in backbone than I would have hoped for, but the hops are definitely there. The aroma hops are there from the get-go and the bittering hops are prickly on the tounge at the end of the swallow. Then a bit of malty sweetness sneaks in there at the end.
Mouthfeel is nice, probably medium if I had to choose a thickness feel. Again, I could go for a bit more backbone.
Drinkability, despite it's agressive hopping and unbalanced nature, is pretty good. I'd buy it again!
