Extreme bitterness like nothing else. Strong floral and some bitterness from the rye. High carbonation and lacing. It will pretty much blast your palate if you are a fan of the extreme hop bitterness. I got it as an individual bottle and not sure I could do six of these. Worth a try

Dark amber in color with a heavy chill haze. Poured with an off-white foam.that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Ripe pineapple and grapfruit aromas with a sugary sweet and light spiciness and rye bready notes toward the end. Medium bodied with a resinous feel in the beginning turning creamy smooth after the rich carbonation rolls through. Intense ripe pineapple and tropical fruit up front that transition to pine hops through the middle with a touch of spicy herbal hops near the end. Despite the incredible hop bitterness a sweet caramel malt backbone manages to contribute. Finishes with a long lingering pine hop bitterness with a bit of malty sweetness beneath. Super hoppy with a nice variety of hop character.
