it's been awhile, but a unfortunately good opportunities to review are few and far between. bought and drank Feb 2010 in Cambridge, MA.
pours a hazy, barely translucent orangey-brown golden -perhaps auburn.. reminds me of a fall day. slightly off-white head is substantial, but various size bubbles, looks not too dense, and dies quickly to leave quite nice lace.
spicy hop is on the nose, a bit of sweetness and some citrus. mostly powered well by what i would describe as a sweet green leafy hop smell.
good balance overall - heavy toward the hop end, of course, but in a great way. good sweetness (maybe a touch of pineapple?) balanced with strong green hop flavor in the middle and strong but not harsh bitter end. bitterness lingers substantially, but isn't uncomfortable. overall a bit too much fruity-sweetness for me, but that's being quite picky.. very good overall.
I generally have an issue with the mouth feel of beers, and I'd have to say this one is quite good. nicely carbonated, not too thick or thin,
I keep coming back, that's what counts! hides 7% very well, just enough lingering flavor to draw you back, but not too much.
