Bottle courtesy of OHLRangers. Thanks Ed!
Pours a clear dark gold in color. There's a very nice inch of white head that forms on the pour. This quickly recedes to a frothy film after a few minutes.
Smell is beautiful, pungent, juicy hops. There's some subtle light malts behind it, but make no mistake this is a hop forward beer.
Taste is huge, juicy, citrusy hops. I could get lost in this beer. Absolutely beautiful in almost every aspect. Incredibly bitter in the mouthfeel. This is a full on assault on your mouth. No sign of the abv until you finish the bottle. I could get ridiculous with this beer.
This is an incredible beer. If I wanted to be picky, I would prefer a more chewy mouthfeel. But that is absolutely splitting hairs. This beer is outstanding. Hopefully this comes back again, because when my last bottle is gone, I may just shed a tear.
