Poured from a growler into a tulip, large, foamy two fingered white head, medium amount of carbonation, is a nice bright gold color, looks very crisp and very clear.
The aroma is a hop heads dream with maximum amounts of citrus in the nose followed with some floral, a little pine hint, and some spicy notes. The taste...ahhh...pucker up! Maximum hop flavoring with relatively few malts to bring the hops into check, the malts here are way off in the distance on the palate to almost non-existant, they are running away in terror from the massive IBU's. The taste starts out as a grapefruit overload, then morphs into a bit of faint spiciness, and finishes semi-dry, massively bitter, and with huge lingering citrus. As I work through the glass, the rich, foamy head sticks to the sides of the tulip glass.
This a medium bodied beer, exhibits medium amounts of prickliness on the tongue. This is far and away one of the most lopsided, unbalanced, and obnoxious beers I've ever had... which is probably why it's one of my favorites!! I really love this brew and it's not for the faint of heart.
Serving type: growler
