Bottle artwork and associated writing is some of the best in the business. Tells a tale of a man, Mr. Hop Wallop, and how he is basically the man...
Appearance- Black Hills Golden. A warming, inviting hue that procures the ideal idea of "Beer". Crystal clear clarity with a wonderful glow. Quickly vanishing head with average lacing.
Smell- Piney, citrus-like, and pungent. Tickles the nostrils with a bitter bite noticeable through the nose. One of the strongest scents I've ever encountered.
Taste- Maltiness tries to break through with no avail. Hops, Hops, Hops. Warning: Unless you like some heavy hops, stay away from this beer. One of those beers that is memorable just because of the kick in the teeth you get. Citrus and pine are incredibly strong. The malty backbone does just enough to mute them into some semblence of a great beer. Very earthy, very floral.
Mouthfeel- Possible perfection. Lingers through the sip just long enough to leave you with an wonderful memory of the taste as the beer quaffs your thirst. Heavy enough to carry its own weight, but light enough not to be filling.
Overall- This a a great beer. I'm thoroughly impressed with this beer. Victory did it right with this one; Thank God its a year-round beer. Also, thank God I live in PA and had to buy it in case form... 23 more little pieces of heaven for this guy!
