Pours a honey orange color. Clear with low carbonation. A vigorous pour produced about a fingers worth of foamy head which in turn receeds quickly to surface film inside a foam ring. Good lacing.
Hops are definitely the main event here with aromas of pineapple. Citus hops follow. This is the best part of the beer.
The taste is balanced nicely with a solid malt backbone. Sweet malts and honey make for a very sweet tasting beer which you'll need for this is guite a bitter bite. Hops have a taste of citrus and floral but there not very aggressive.
This is a bitter beer with the flavor of the hops being in a secondary roll.
With everything going on with this beer it presents itself as being thin and even watery.
I would expect a fuller beer.
Finishs dry and bitter with the bitterness lingering well into the aftertaste.
A big bold beer with a big bold alcohol presence
that would limit the amount one could drink at any one sitting.
I like hop flavor more then the just hop bitterness so personally I would like to see the flavor raised a bit to complement the bitterness and sweet malts.
A good beer not stellar.
