Had a pint of this at Mill Valley Beerworks. Great place.

A - Very pleasant copper color, very impressive head retention. Kept a thin layer of foam through the ENTIRE time. Thick and creamy lacing left an imprint of off-white bubbles at every gulp. Nice.

S - great hop aroma that was consistent throughout. Pretty impressive how the smell of the hops pervaded with every sip.

T - great hop forward taste. Classic American hops. I experienced this beer as a more refined Hop Stoopid, and without the dried apricot presence.

M - smooth and creamy.

O - I have to say I really enjoyed this. Try it if you can!

Serving type: on-tap

Had on-tap at Rattle N Hum Earlier tonight in NYC.
Reviewed from notes.

This beer pours a nice copper color. There is a finger of creamy off-white head resting on top. The head has good retention, and there is a sheet of sticky lace left behind on the glass. The nose has a nice piney hop aroma. There are also some smells of tropical fruit and some caramel malt. The taste starts off with a bit of sweet maltiness and nice piney hop bitterness. There are some fruit flavors present as well. The malty backbone gives this some nice balance, but it is still definitely a hop forward beer. The finish leaves a bit of lingering hop bitterness on the palate. It has a medium body and good carbonation. It goes down easy, and it has a bit of an oily feel to it. There is some hop bitterness that lingers on the palate for a minute. The drinkability is good here. It goes down easy and the flavor is quite nice. I think it could use a little bit more hop flavor. Overall, I enjoyed this one and I definitely think it is worth trying out.
