Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Ruination pint glass. Moderately aggressive hand. Brewed on either 03/21/13 or 08/21/13. It's a bit smudged.

A: Fairly hazy, honey-colored body with a nice effervescence. 1 solid finger of off-white head with decent retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Citrus-forward hops, but not as overtly grapefruit as some others. Subdued piney notes. Light pepper. Light biscuit as it warms.

T: Juicy, but assertive bitterness, immediately and throughout. Light malt kicks in later, but certainly comes no where near overtaking the hops. Pretty dry, bitter finish. Great stuff. Grapefruit zest and dry pine feature most predominantly. Some hints of vanilla. No alcohol presence.

M: Moderate to lower carbonation with moderate body. Nice and appropriately full in the mouth. Slight creaminess.

O: The combination of hops really shines in this one. Nicely amalgamated into a well-integrated, and damn delicious, hop presence. Great balance with regards to the malt. Certainly bitter, but drinks superbly. This is a case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

Prost!
