This is one of those rare beers where, as soon as you take the first sip, you start worrying about getting back to the store to buy more before they run out.
Pour was a ruby/orange with a tight head. Hops lose not time getting out of the gate with a warm aroma of citrus fruits. Up front a touch acidic awash with a plethora of citrus-oriented hops notes - grapefruit, tangerine and blood orange. A veritable fruit bowl of hops without any fruity-qualities to the beer itself. Mid-caramel malt shows up toward the middle, never trying to upstage the hops. Finish is lingering with a firm bittering. ETOH lends the barest touch of white pepper at the finish.
Highly hopped, but not for the sake of hopping itself - an excellent example of citrus-centric hops. If you see it, buy it.
