My cousin got a small keg of this and put it in his kegerator. Let's just say I owe him huge. Since then I've also had it from a can, and both ways are about the same, although on tap is what I'm reviewing, and it's a bit better.

Nice red coloring with a thin head which disappears quickly.

Smells like a bucket of hops. Seriously, it's like I jumped into a pile of them.

Taste is wonderful. Lots of grapefruit and maybe a touch of pine. Quite good.

Really coats the tongue with hop residue. Almost sticky feeling, but in a good way.

This beer is very drinkable, especially if it's hot out.

Serving type: on-tap
