There is no born on date, so it may be difficult to tell how accurately I am tasting this beer. There is plenty of hop character here to handle a bit of loss from age though.

Any homebrewers here? Take a hop pellet or two and pop it in your mouth, you practically have a hop wallop. Huge, bitter hop nose and taste. Pretty awesome. Fresh cut grass, citrus, etc...

A typical golden, haystack, translucence that is common with these strongly hopped beers, as to keep a simple malt bill, and allow the hops to shine... a la Pliny the Younger.

As for drinkability this is a tasty and fun brew, but I myself won't go much more than 2-3 of these, and I love the idea of a beer that tastes like hops in my mouth... although I can feel my mouth going numb here!
