Absolutely the perfect beer.
Poured into my tulip glass amazing amber color, with a thin quickly disappearing head that leaves a nice lacing as I drink this down.
Smell is amazing grapefruit, citrus, pine needles and a nice sweetness.
Tastes the same way it smells, there is an almost overpowering hop presence but the malty sweetness doesn't let it get to much, as the malt fades it leaves a nice bitter aftertaste.
The mouth feel is silky smooth and delivers the hoppiness to my taste buds.
I see how this was so mind blowing at the time it came out, almost created its own style that is often imitated but never equaled over the years.
I wish I could get this more regularly, my favorite beer of all time
