Had a real hard time getting this beer. A friend hooked me up with 1 can from his 4 pack.
My expectations were really high to finally try this. Split it with my brother who was also trying it for the first time.
Poured into a pint glass out of can.
Grapfruit and citrus hop aroma jumped out of the glass which was awesome.
Taste followed the nose extremly hop forward, which was to be expected. Citrus notes stood out the most to me. Hard time tasting the malt. Very fresh with extremly long aftertaste.
Overall, I was not that impressed, maybe because my expectaions were too high. Still a great beer, especially if you love this style. Need to try directly from can.
For what it is worth my brother absolutly loved it.
Edit: Tried a second time from the can.
THis time I purchased straight from the brewery so the freshness was insured.
This beer is very good, I think having it in a glass and getting it third hand had effected it the first time.
It is easy drinking for such a hoppy beer, I would almost call it juicy. Really kicks ass.
