A: Slightly hazy orange golden apperance with a decent white foam head. Good lacing inside the glass. Medium level of carbonation.
S: Holy Hop load! Lots of hops and citrus notes, with the everpresent element of pine. Some sweet sugary notes mixed in as well. Very much like Two-Hearted, but pumped up to the next level, so to speak.
T: I had trouble putting this one down. Bitter hop oils attack the mouth, with a mild, yet present buttery malt note. The hops continue their trek and bloom into a citrusy sweet finish with a hint of green pine. Wow. Very little indication of the higher ABV.
M: Medium to full bodied. Dense, yet not choking. Oily and a touch syrupy. Nice.
D: Dangerously good, even at 9.3% ABV. This one will creep up and whack you over the head with a hearty dose of alcohol. Watch out.
Notes: A very good hoppy ale. One of the best i've had. My only complaint is the crappy limited production. This really should have a longer production run, if not year round availablity. What can I say? Larry Bell has one of his biggest hits yet, and it's gonna be gone in no time! That pisses me off, but in a good way!
