Celebration drink this. Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a large snifter.

A solid pale, orange juice color. Very hazy and full of cloud. Just less than a finger thick head with good retention. Good enough lacing on the sides. Some minor bubbles. Totally opaque.

Aroma has almost every hop note that i have ever noticed - ok not every but almost all. Earthy, herbal. A lot of flower notes and good amount of grapefruit. It is like a sap coming out of hops.
If you take out this wonderful and enticing aroma that reminds a lot of hops it could be mistaken for grapefruit or orange juice.

Flavor is just awesome. Hits hard with citrus and earthy notes. A lot of herbal character in the beer. Grapefruit is abundant as well. Malt in the middle but the ending is super bitter. Excellent bitterness overall as such. Justifies its 100 IBUs. Very well hidden alcohol. Seems like i am drinking some kind of citrus juice. Bitterness is palate wrecking. So make this your last beer of the day/night. Hurts the tongue not very severely mainly due to controlled carbonation, but the bitterness is still huge. Aftertaste lingers on forever. A bit piney towards the end.

Feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very slight alcohol warmth. Excellent brew for a hop head like me. Some oily and resiny touch.

Go for it. It is big and bold. You won't be disappointed.

Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Smell is earthy, bready, buttery, slightly citrusy. Taste is also buttery, lots of pine, some orange, some mango some apricot, thick texture with a nice bitter bite. I'm a big fan of all things Floyd's but I would rather grab a dreadnaught any day, this is a great beer, very intense thick buttery hop profile. This been lives up to the name, worth a try for sure
