Pours golden/orange, medium head.

Smell of pine is very strong, some citrus.

Taste is off the charts, lots of bitterness but balanced well with citrus. A little boozey on the finish. Very fresh and surprisingly refreshing for a TIPA with 11%.

If you love strong IPAs, with tons of booze and citrus bitterness this is it. Doesn't get much better than Hop Shortage. Tastes even better from the taproom! This beer is slightly better than Simtra in my opinion, seems more balanced.
