Bought a 6 pack (rare for me) at Bottles on the East Side. Decided to have 2 of these in a row. Why not? Sat. night - home alone watching playoff baseball and a horror movie later.
Poured into a Caesar's Palace bomber glass. Nice copper color, somewhat thin head and solid lacing. Right away I can tell I'm going to like this due to the strong piney aroma. The smell carries over nicely to the taste - there's also a profound bitter kick that lingers for quite a while. I recommend sipping this slowly to allow the complex hop flavors to settle in.
Overall a great effort from CEB. A 'hophead" kind of beer. This should take over Hurricane Amber as their flagship beer. I also recommend touring their brewery if you happen to be in the Newport area - always a good time.
