This beer is truly a total tongue attack; astringent; pungent, resinous, and aggressive. Pours a slightly hazy, deep orange color with a good sized, slowly sinking head and strong lacing. Nose is all hops: tropical citrus notes come out big-time, followed by resinous and floral notes. Malt is nearly undetectable. The same is pretty much true for the flavor: it’s a bitter assault, with not only citrus but a somewhat more dominant resin, pine, and floral aspect. Also some pith and aspirin. Not a ton of subtlety and certainly not much of a malt presence.

Medium to slightly full-bodied for the style, with medium carbonation. Somewhat hefty mouthfeel seems appropriate given the huge and bold hoppiness. As others have said, this isn’t the most drinkable beer; it’s both alcoholically strong and bordering on the extreme (well past for some) in terms of hopping. Puts me in mind of Surly’s Abrasive, which I think is perhaps a slightly better beer.
