A fairly gentle pour generated a big foamy white cap. Lots of carbonation streaming up. Head lasted a decent amount of time before settling into a quarter inch blanket on top of an awesome copper orange beer. Lots of citrusy hops on the nose not much from the malt bill. Smells awesome. Taste is great. Lots of hops but no overpowering bitterness. This isn't a beer about power as much as it is about balance. I feel like its limited availability gives unrealistic expectations. Taste the beer not the hype, and this [email protected] is tasty.
