Poured from a bottle, drank from a seidel.

A: A rusty red colour. Clear, but with plenty of carbonation flowing upwards. Aggressive white head, with sticky intricate lacing down the side of the glass. 4.3

S: Powerful citrus primarily, rich rich hops, sweet but very clean smelling. Quite flowery and delicious. Pure hop deliciousness abounds, and not much else. Which is okay with me; it smells amazing. 4.65

T: Alright, I get that it's a mega-hop beer, but this is a bit overboard. If you've ever eaten a hop flower, this is a toned down version of that. With that said, the hop overload is nicely complimented by a sweet caramel aspect. Not bad. 4

M: I'm burping flowery hops, this is so awesome. A tiny bit astringent, but an excellent mouthfeel. 4.9

Overall: Fantastic, super hoppy, it does what it set out to do fantastically. 4.4
