look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a rich clear amber color. Thin one finger off white head that fades to a quick ring. Some lacing.

Distinct piney, earthy and citrusy hop aroma. Orange and grapefruit comes to mind. Balances along the sweet pale malts.

No wonder this beer is on all the "top" beers lists. It's damn near perfect. Tons of hops bitterness. Piney resin and grapefruit citrus blends well with a sturdy malty backbone that gives it a sweeter taste that wasn't expected the first time I ever had this. But the flavors work together so well. That even the hops aren't that overpowering. By now I'm used to this beer and it's become something I look forward to every February. It's like Hopback Ale on steroids and it's simply a powerful and deliciously flavorful beer.

Medium to full bodied. Smooth on the palate and perfectly drinkable. Crisp, yet a dry bitter lingering finish.
