4.25/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served in a snifter at Harry's Hofbrau.

A: No head. Deep, ruddy auburn. Translucent, and gorgeously so.

S: Huge astringent hops. Smells like weed or whole hop cones. Fresh hopped? Pine, tangerine, grapefruit, and bitter resin.

T/M: I love it. Resiny, yes, but interesting, hoppy, and compelling. Good carbonation keeps the mouthfeel spicy and sharp, and the finish is pleasantly bitter. Honestly, this tastes like a slightly less intense Hoptimum with a healthy dose of spicy rye and slightly more sweet. I heartily approve.

O: If you see it, dry it. Dry and bitter, but thoroughly enjoyable. Would have again and again. I hope it's bottled some day.
