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.

Pours a cream, three-finger head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Murky amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy clove nose, flavor some grapefruit hops with hints of caramel. Lingering bitterness. Pricey at $7.75 for a 500ml bottle from Bert's Better Beers Hooksett NH. Bottled 1/4/2014.
