Mostly clear copper in color, with light carbonatin and a thinnish off-white head that lingers and laces the glass. This beer is dominated by a juicy, orangey hop aroma w/ hints of pine, accompanied bysome light caramel notes struggling to make themselves noticed. Firtst thing noticed in the mouth -- wow, this is pretty damn hot in terms of the alcohol. The hops are very piney, with some sharp grapefruit character as well.
Sweetness is big also, and swells in sugary presence as the beer warms. Eventually, the alcohol cools off (though perhaps its just my taste buds getting numb) but never drops completely off the radar. Fairly heavy in the mouth, and the sparse carbonation doesnt help. Overall, this is an alright beer, though it could definitely do with a little "time-out" before drinking.
