Way too fruity, not enough hop to it.

22oz bottle into a tall tulip

A: Pours a dark golden, slightly amber color with two fingers of fluffy head. Good retention and great lacing.

S: Very strong hop aroma, even for the style. I get piney hops followed by dank, resiny hops and a touch of citrus. A touch of bready malts come through, but there is not much of a malt presence here.

T: Really odd. A nice bitterness comes through with much more caramel sweetness than I anticipated from the aroma. An extremely strong hop flavor comes through, balanced citrus and pine. The hop flavor is unbelievably strong - I don't think I've ever had such a strong hop flavor in a beer - I'd imagine the 15 minute addition is very, very high.

M: Medium thickness for the style with appropriate carbonation.

O: The hop flavor in this beer kills anything else that might have been good in this beer. It is intense - much higher than I've had in any other beer. It certainly got better as I kept drinking, but I drain poured a significant part of the bottle.
