Pours a medium amber in the tall glass. Plenty of foam and a lively carbonation on the tongue. A hint of oil in the mouthfeel.
The massive blast of hops is a surprise. Huge aroma of piney pitch and something flowery. Enormous resiny flavor. Well, this is totally hop-centric, with endless flavors of all the Major Hop Groups-- resins, pine, grapefruit, lime peel, and ends up feeling like chewing on the stringy pulp of an unripe mango next to the big seed. Sharp and hot with oils. Tastes more alcoholic than it is. After the lush splash of hoppy aromatics, the bitterness takes over and leads you down the dark alley further than I care to go. But for sheer hop flavor, I see the attraction. Just let me off the bus.
From the 16 oz can bought at Jubilation Fine Wines in Albuquerque.
