Smelled very crisp from the moment I opened the bottle. High-hop beers always seem to have a "clean" scent cutting right through any flavors I may have had in my mouth recently. The beer was a deep gold with a just-barely-offwhite head that lasted quite a while and laced firmly to the glass. On my lips I can taste the plant-like sweetness that I dislike in a beer like Dogfish's 120 Minute, but it immediately gives way to the biting, fresh taste of hops (wish I knew my hop varietals a little better). I can taste a citrusy flavor at the top of my mouth (but it's not oranges... maybe grapefruit? I don't know--I don't eat grapefruits). The beer fills my mouth without being too heavy or cloying, and the alcohol warms the palate quite a bit. Aftertaste reminds me of white grape juice with some of the sugar removed.
I really enjoyed this beer and will definitely buy it again.
