Pours a beautiful copper amber with a generous head that quickly dissipates to a lasting tan lacing. The aroma on the ale is pure hops. Tons of citrus, grapefruit, lots of pine and dare I say a hint of coriander. It sips medium bodied and coats the palate in a very pleasant way. The flavor is all hops (as expected and anticipated). An ample amount of pine and grapefruit. Super bitter and dry with little to no balance. But this is the intention of the ale. Balance is not a need, necessity, or a want from an ale like this. It is all about the hops and this one delivers. Super bitter, but fresh and florally. Not a hint of the high abv. It's not a balanced ipa but it is Every thing it is meant to be. Not an ale I'd want to down daily but most certainly one that I'll look forward to enter every year.
