Voraciously hoppy and not overly bitter. The Kind brings enormous aroma and maximum flavor. It's like taking a walk through a pine forest and ending up at a citrus farm. This beer brings joy to the world, one sip at a time.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a Stone Arrogant Bastard specialty glass. Probably around 20 oz or so.

A - really good head retention. three finger white frothy creamy head. still holding more then two inches in the head after ten min of being poured. hazy light orange, yellow like in color.

S - Smells like plastic or something, really weird... some mild pine mixed with citrus.

T - pretty balanced. mild lingering bitterness...getting a lot of pine...maybe im mistaking that plastic like smell as that. some mild citris here and there...and sweet malt to balance it. decent. nothing to rave about in my opinion. Slightly earthy and soiley. if your into citrus hop bombs do not get this.

M - slightly creamy and medium mouthfeel.

Overall. a decent beer, not great, not bad. average.
