A hazy amber color with a small head. There was some nice lace.
Citrus and pine hops aroma. Some sweet malt.
Big grapefruit taste. A little pine. White bread.
Nicely hopped, good beer.

From the 16.9 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on April 18, 2014.

Cloudy, medium amber pour with a modest off-white head.

Check out those floral and perfume hop aromas on the nose. They're penetrating! Some buried roasted malt but mainly hops.

The body is in the medium range but it is also kind of chewy in texture.

The first couple of sips are hopped to the max. It does have 106 IBU's. But it seems to mellow as it goes along and warms up. But the hops penetrate the senses and the taste buds with the malt notes taking a distant second...or even third or fourth.

From a 32oz growler poured 3 days ago.

Pours an amber color with a smallish head, large bubbles with only small bits of lacing.

Smell has a wet hop aroma with a light pine aroma, fairly strong caramel malt backing on the nose.

Taste is a fair mix of malt and piney hops, neither of which is overly strong but balanced, carbonation is on the low end but not flat, decent breadiness.

Pours a cloudy dark gold with clingy, thin white head. Great lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus are mild, but present. Nose has a nice bready malt as well. Beginning of the sip is a nice big explosion of resin pine, never too harsh mid-sip, suddenly balanced by a nice malt backbone with a hint of sweetness in the smooth finish. Really enjoyable. I've also only got about 50 pages left in the also enjoyable namesake novel right now, so not coincidental i picked this up.
