Picked up a 22 oz. bottle from The Quarters.

This thing is a hop bomb, pure and simple.

Pours a deep, burnished gold color with a moderate white head. The aroma is strong grapefruit.

Excellent mouth feel. Very strong hop taste hits first; you can taste grapefruit, maybe some lemon, but the hop bitterness is almost overwhelming. I could not taste any malt elements in the brew. Slightly astringent on the finish.

I'm not a big fan of hop bombs, but I'd drink this again. I'd be interested to find it on tap at the La Cumbre pub.

Thank to Joe for splitting a bottle!

Pours a fairly clear burnished gold with minimal head and not much of a cap. Smell is tons of onions and pine, faint mint, with some sweet tropicals backing it all up. Taste follows wonderfully. Love the bitterness on this beer. Intermittent, sweet tropical fruit interrupts the bitter hop/onion flavor. Just a hint of booze warms your bones. Mouthfeel compliments the flavors, completing a spectacular drinking experience. Had this just a couple days after Sosus, and a couple days before King Sue. This one wins. With a full nelson. Boom.
