Appearance: Pours a hazy amber color capped by two fingers of foam; decent retention and a fair webbing of lace is left behind

Smell: Biscuity and citrusy, with grapefruit and tropical fruit tones

Taste: Just a hint of biscuity malt and then the grapefruit and tropical fruit flavors take over, dominating the middle and the finish

Mouthfeel: Light bodied (somewhat aqueous) with moderate carbonation

Overall: Love a 4% beer packed with a big hop bill, particularly when it is citrusy rather than just a bitter assault

Thanks, jonallen, for the opportunity

A- pours a hazy blonde with thick white head.

S- very floral aroma backed by a caramel sweetness.

T- intense bitterness dominates with only a slight reprieve granted by the caramel malts.

Mf- light bodied and maybe slightly over carbonated.

A better than average brew, plus when you buy a pint figure eight donates to a local charity.

A nostalgic story about the name of this beer, named after a difficult climbing route in KY's Red River Gorge, where I also grew up hiking as a kid.

Bright high clarity orange, thin layer of white foam that recedes fast to a skim, a collar of lace around the edges.

Pungent C-hop aroma at first, very orangey, resiny, with a touch of dankness. Seems to taper off in intensity fairly soon though, but what's there is nice.

Flavorful, some dry resiny pine and citrus peel hop character, medium bitterness, dry grassy finish. Clean and light bodied, which is what the brewer says they were going for. Touches of caramel, not overly sweet, the bitterness rolls through early and lingers into the finish. Very easy to drink, and the bomber disappears quickly. Tasty and well put together, would drink again.
