Sampled thanks to RedwoodGeorge and his most Excellent trade!
Pours a mildly hazed orange gold beer with not much head formation.
Smell is loads of pleasant fresh hops. Lots of pine and grapefruit scents. Additional scents of lemon, eucalyptus, mint, black pepper, and cardamom. A super pleasant smell in the same class as Three Floyds Dreadnaught.
Taste is wow perfect! Light malt sweetness with abundant hop flavors. Flavors of lemon, wood, pine, pineapple, black pepper, cilantro, oranges and probably 20 more things that I can't name. Basically this is the IPA that they serve in heaven!
Mouthfeel is very good.
This is heavenly to drink! There is only one other beer in the same class as this; the much loved Three Floyds Dreadnaught. If you have the opportunity to try this by all means quit your job if you have too and DO IT!
The only possible problem with this beer is that every beer you drink for a week after will just not come close to it.
