Notes from at the Armsby Abbey on 8/11
A - Cloudy straw with a nice one finger head with a TON of lacing. This was crazy I've never had a beer with this much lacing to it.
S - Smells like what one would expect. Floral hops.
T - Very solid bitter. Nice and hoppy with lots of citrus rind taste.
M - Low carbonation resulting in a rather heavey feel.
D - Really good dry hoppy finish. Extremely drinkable really making you want more with each sip.
Serving type: on-tap

Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Cloudy golden-yellow pour with a two finger foamy white head with decent retention and great lacing. The nose is herbal and grassy with hints of lemon, grapefruit, subtle yeast, and straw. The taste lives up to the name with loads of bitter hoppiness along with hints of grass, lemon zest, white pepper, grapefruit, and subtle caramel sweetness. The mouthfeel is light bodied, sharp and tangy, with a refreshing crisp, bitter, dry finish. Overall, this was about what I had expected, considering that I had already had the XXX Bitter. Extremely bitter, but quite drinkable and very refreshing. And you can't beat the price for a beer of this quality. Wondering why I waited so long to try this.
