A: Pours a straw yellow color with 2+ fingers of head that very slowly fades down to a nice cap that leaves great lacing

S: Extremely hop-forward, with grapefruit and citrus standing out the most. A little herbal as well, with a nearly non-existent malt presence

T: Starts off with the citrusy hops, which are still very grapefruit forward. Some herbal notes come out behind the citrus, along with a very light maltiness which is just barely enough to balance. Bitter throughout. Finishes with more bitterness and a hint of alcohol

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Obviously extremely similar to the original 2nd Anniversary beer, but it's slightly more drinkable. Definitely backs up the statement on the label that states that it's extra hoppy. The 100 IBUs are definitely right up front and in your face. This one will either get you hooked on lagers or extremely hoppy beers... not that many people aren't already hooked on the latter
