Bottled 11/19/12

Part of the "Beers of Fame" list that I'm keen on ticking.

Served in a newly acquired DC Brau jar glass.

A: Poured an almost clear, citrus orange color, with only a slight bit of haze. The head was about 1.5-2 fingers and behaved like soap scum on the glass.

S: Pretty piny, but not too ridiculously floral.... much more resiny and bitter than anything.

T: Yep, just like I remember it: Bitter as hell, with a very subdued sugar component. This one gives the standard grapefruit a run for its money.

M: Like is stated, bitter, and with very little malt backbone (although for the hophead, that's probably a good thing). The head, much less lacing never subsided, even after several minutes. This one had more in common with krausen than the actual finished beer product.

O: Lubricant for the true hophead engine in all of us. My teeth are now stained with hops!
