On tap at Whole foods.

Brushed bronze body. Presented with a very scant, light tan head.

Aromas of every hop aroma imaginable. Citrus, tropical fruit, spice, pine and everything in between. Onions and some caramel. If you wanted hop essence Ina jar, this is it.

Wow. I have never had a beer that went from biscuity, caramel malts to floral hops, to citrus, to pine, to onion, to bitter as hell in a single sip.

Wow, again. Super complex, as far as hops go. So many flavors. Definitely need to be a hop fan for this, but if you are, you won't be disappointed.

375ml bottle wrapped in green paper. Picked up from local liquor store that just got it in this week. Poured into CCB snifter.

A- Pours a dark slightly reddish mahogany brown. About a quarter finger of white slightly foamy head that recedes fairly fast to leave a little bit of head, but not much. About average carbonation. Leaves very nice spidery lacing.

S- Caramel malts, citrus hops, grapefruit, a little bit of lemon, a tiny bit of booze, etc. A little bit sweet and citrusy. About average aroma strength.

T- Bitter/citrusy lemons, a little bit of grapefruit, caramel malts, a tiny bit of honey. Definitely very bitter but balances well with the lemon taste.

M- Medium bodied, average carbonation, well balanced, goes down easily especially for it's bitterness and high abv.

O- I was a little bit skeptical about this beer since I don't like beers that are overly bitter. This beer was definitely very bitter, however the bitterness was balanced very nicely with the lemon flavor. The 9.6% abv was also very well hidden. Overall not sure if I'd pay almost $15 to get a bottle again, but definitely a nice experience. I recommend trying it out.

Poured from 375ml bottle into a duvel glass.

A: pours a rusty brown ruby/amber, with a massive, slightly carameled puffy white head, that dissapates slowly and leavs an absurd amount of lacing... Wow...

S: deep resinous pine, tropical citrus, mango, grapefruit, and caramely malt backbone... Touch of sweetness.... Smells hoppy as nuts, especially as it warms they really come out.

T: as expected, a hop bomb! Sweet, slightly burnt caramel malt backbone, assaulted by chewy resinous pine, and loads of citrus hop notes, very bitter, very delicious, loads and loads of hop flavor, just what I was hoping for here.

M: bitter... Medium/heavy slightly slick body, lightly syrupy but not to much so, it reminds me if drinkin hop resin, that coats your mouth and goes to town on your palate. Long bitter aftertaste.

O: an awesome beer! Just be prepared for a very bitter, very hoppy experience, as should be obvious through the name of this beer. Loads and loads of deliciously bitter hop aggression!
