Drake's Hopocolypse

A:  amber colored and completely clear.  What small head dissipates to nothing.  

S:  strong hop aroma.  Quite a bit of citrus & floral but also a decent pine presence.  Others agree on pine.  One comments it smells of cat urine...but in a good way.

T:  in the taste the citrus is more present.  It is quite bitter on my mouth and throat.  It ends with a bitter dryness that is a little puckering.

M:  smooth in that it is cask ale and the carbonation is low.  Bitter at the end.  ABV is present though.

D:  a really nice treat out of the blue.  The last firkin or keg of this beer for the year with the brewer introducing it.  I'd drink again, nice local brew.

Serving type: cask
