Pours a hazy golden peach, which clears up as it warms. Small white head does not much retention and leaves some lace behind.

Raw hop aroma of pungent herbs, pine, grass, and mild citrus. Very strong and a little must. Faint malt lies behind the hops.

Hops are what this beer is all about. Herbal, leafy, and lots of pine kick in first and remain throughout. Very earthy and raw with sappy sweetness and citrus twang. Some bready sweetness attempts to balance to no avail. Notes of fruit and cider towards the finish. Finishes bone dry. Tastes as if someone was angry - "You want hops? Here, here's your hops!!"

Light to medium in body - way too thin result in a rough and raw feel on the tongue. Crisp, a little coarse and grainy. The hops are a bit too much, definitely unbalanced, overpowering and unpleasant at times. Not undrinkable, but I could not finish the 12oz bottle. Not a fan.
