I was surprised to see that this beer poured a dark brown color. Had a medium head that fell quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The aroma is all hops - almost all citrus - with just a touch of dark malty sweetness in the background. The flavor was much the same, a touch of malty sweetness, but a ton of citrus and floral hop flavors and a lingering bitterness. The body was medium and the drinkability was good.

A- Great dark black with finger of head. Stellar lacing too.

S- This has quite the hop kick, for something I was expecting to be more malty and chocolaty. I'm excited to taste this.

T- The hop taste is great, with a roasty malty coffee blend to it as well. I'm getting a sort of spicy herbal taste to this, which is standing out for me. A slight chocolate taste is finally coming though the more I drink this.

M- Medium to thicker mouthfeel, good carbination too.

D- Very drinkable, I wasn't expecting all the hops, even though I've had the 11th anniversary ale, which was a while back though.

Pours a dark brown. Very dark with reddish hints. Tons of hops on the nose. Piney and grapefruit primarily. Hops hint first on the tonue. Pine first and foremost and then lots of citrus/grapefruit. Pretty impressive how hoppy it is given the darkness. Light and highly drinkable
