Pours copper. Short, thick, white head that fades slowly. No hop cone.

Smells pine, malt, earthy.

Tastes doughy and caramel malt. Pine, pepper and light citrus. Finish is dry with light pine linger. Medium to full body and smooth lower medium carbonation

Well any bottle with a hop cone in it gets a minor boost in the appearance category, so cool. Other than that, usual copper color, small white head. The aroma would have been better if it was more diverse. Pretty much that standard bitter grapefruit thing going on.

Taste comes around, bitter citrus and grapefruit, malt bill restrained, a little sticky. Best thing it does is hide substantial alcohol.

Exceptional IIPA - was surprised with the whole hop cone even after reading the disclaimer. I've had this on tap and growlers before and loved this beer! I think the hop come is a funky marketing scheme but I like it if it's consumed fresh! Love O'so!!!
