Bottled 4/28/11, consumed sometime early May. Reviewed from notes.
A - Pours a clear honey color with a frothy white head. Good retention and wonderful lacing.
S - Aromatic piney hops, very floral, and light citruses. Quite the handful of hops here, as expected. Very inviting.
T - Well balanced combination of malt and hops, but the hops are definitely dominant. Delicious hop profile that's full of citrusy notes like grapefruit, pineapple, and lemon. Nice pale malt backbone. Finishes bitter and dry. Slightly sweet.
M - High-medium body with a prickly medium carbonation. Slightly sticky.
D - Very drinkable, even at 8%. I'm not sure what's left to say after over 2,000 reviews that hasn't already been said. This is an all around wonderful beer that I strongly wish was available to me locally.
