Did someone say six-hundo??? A big shout out to Kevin, who will be missed as he ventures out away from Kentucky and back to his homeland. One great BA and friend he is, especially for all the beer he has helped me consume, this one included. 12oz. bottle poured into a tulip-style glass. It pours a deep copper, almost light mahogony color with two huge fingers of foam. There's a generous portion of lacing left clining to life on the sides of the glass. The smell is something of awe. This just doesn't smell good for beer, it smells better than almost anything that's ever crossed my nose. It's that awesome. Lots of juicy hop aroma, sticky and sweet. It's perfect, really no other way to describe it. I won't even bother going on. The taste isn't fair behind. A slight sweetness moves over the tongue just long enough to make its presence known. Then's it's all hops from here. Floral and piney, all coming together. Not overly bitter, just a great hop flavor that lasts on the palate, creating a breathtaking finish. The mouthfeel is fairly thick and chewy. Yum yum. The drinkability is phenominal for a 7.5% brew. What a great way to spend my 600th review. A great beer from a great friend. I can't thank him enough.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint mug, this is a reddish amber beer with a smallish but persistent head. Good malt aroma with a pleasant underlay of grassy, piney hops. Flavor is really good, with plenty of malt backed against high bitterness that tastes of citrus, fresh-mown grass hoppiness. Nice big body, but not overly heavy. Light esters finish out the dry end.
