Bright gold colored body; thick, dense, white head; lots of fine carbonation gently rising; sticky clumps of foam on the glass. Fruity aroma with citrus and pine resin notes; lemon; sweet caramel. Soothing biscuit and caramel malt flavors that quickly give way to an intense hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body; chewy; residual sugars add to the body while the huge hop presence and ABV makes for an overall dry finish.

This beer delivers on its stated aim to deliver a huge hop bomb. Bitterness and aroma dominate yet there is a nice, subtle balance brought to play with the grain bill. A must try for hop junkies...

Served from 22oz bomber

A — Pours a light and clear yellow color, there almost appears to be a tinge of green around the edges as well. Thin white colored head doesn't leave behind the greatest lacing ever, but not bad.

S — Smells of lemon and pine needles, almost artificially lemon forward, quite zezty.

T — Tastes like the nose, extremely bitter, notes of lemon, pine, earthy and medicinal.

M — Quite astringent and dry, no real lingering sweetness.

O — OK overall, would actually like to see the ABV a bit higher to bring up some character.

Pours a two finger clingy lightly yellow-tanned head over a cloudy dark apricot liquid. Smells pink grapefruit, pine, pith, baby aspirin, and over-ripe oranges, orange sherbet. Tastes hop bitter just dominating over malt sweet, hop flavor, and fruity esters. Bitter is grassy rough edgy and mixed with mildly sharp carbonation and clean alcohol sting. Hop flavor is sharp pithy, drying grapefruit, and ends very earthy and dank. Esters are peach and guava. Md in the mouth and moderate carbonation. Over all drying and woody, not particularly enjoyable.
