Served in a pint glass at Beer Run in Charlottesville. From notes. Reviewed 1 February 2012 (last night).

A: Nice head fades fast. Clearish orange; great lace.

S: Lots of citrusy hops and fruity malts.

T: Fan-freaking-tastic. Huge, fruity flavours; loads of hops; bitter, tasty fruit. Indescribably good. Seriously, I'm not even going to flesh out my review of the taste because it wouldn't do it justice and I'd rather drink another glass than sit here reviewing it.

M: Excellent. Firm, malty, and delicious. The aftertaste is wet and full of fruit.

O: One of the all-time best beers I've ever drunk. I absolutely love it. Highly recommended. I will drink again and again wherever I can find it. If you choose not to...Heaven help you.
