This review will be similar to my Blind Pig review because these two beers are very similar.
Large, white soapy head on a bright, golden body,
Smells of piney, resiny, grapefuity goodness. There's just a touch of malty sweetness, but you really have to look for it.
Super hoppy bitterness. I don't know how Vinnie does it, but this is more hoppy than any other beer. Not balanced in a good way.
Clean, dry, crisp. Just the slightest amount of sweetness.
It's amazing that an 8% beer can be so dry, but PtE does it amazingly well. This, along with Blind Pig, are the perfect examples of the style.
