Clear, light amber on the pour with a thin white head that shrinks back to a sticky film.
Big hop aroma, all pine and citrus. Thick, sugary malt smell underneath. Inviting. Mouth is watering now.
Nice hop flavor right off, malty and with a hint of diacetyl, then a lasting piney hop bitterness on a dry finish.
Light-medium bodied, clean and moderate carbonation. Maybe a wee thin.
I enjoyed it. At 4.6 ABV, this is an excellent session brew for the hop hungry. Sure it's hopped to the hilt. Some like it, some don't. If you like SNPA or Dogfish 60 Minute, I'm betting you'll like this. Just as full of hop flavor but a little less of a meal.
Thanks to Hustlemuscle for sharing.
