look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Smell (4.50) - super fresh. Huge floral notes. Sharp smell of hops. I can almost taste the bitterness.

Appearance (4.25) - golden brown and slightly hazy. Creamy white head. Not much carbonation going on. Fantastic lacing.

Taste (3.75) - as the names hints, lots of hops. It's quite bitter but not as off he charts as something like hopstoopid. Floral notes are a definite. Bright overall character. Some slight caramels going on.

Mouthfeel (4.25) - crisp. Exactly how I would want this kind of beer. Good levels of carbonation. Abv is hidden pretty well but comes out in the finish.

Overall (4.25) - great beer that will definitely satisfy any hop heads out there. I think it lacks in the taste department but chances are that's just because of the overwhelming bitterness.

Serving type: bottle

on draft at beer study in chapel hill. into a tulip. 3 day old keg.

pours a dark copper color with a big head. massively hoppy aroma, wow this is fresh! taste is more of the same, a huge hop bite and amazing grapefruit flavor. definitely fresh! medium bodied, mild carbonation.

overall superb. 3 days old so it rocked. love it!

Serving type: on-tap
