A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a bright color and a cloudy consistency. There was a big, foamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A very hoppy aroma, with a lot of citrus and other fruit on hand as well.

T: Tasted of hops (though not as much as you might think), some malt, caramel, pine, citrus (grapefruit), pineapple, and a tinge of grassiness as well. This is an incredibly robust and complex flavor that is completely focused and easy to like.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a somewhat slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is one of those beers that actually lives up to its reputation. An excellent piece of brewing.

Poured into a pint glass from bomber

A-Clear copper color with huge head after a slightly aggressive poured thick lacing covering the sides of the glass

S-Very aromatic. Pinapple,mango,orange, grapefruit, some floral overtones

T-Much like the nose. This brew packs alot of flavor. Juicy citrus hops. Not very balance but if you like juicy hops this should do it.

M-Creamy thick for the style. nice slick coating of the mouth

O-this was the perfect beer for the moment. the smell and flaovr just exploded for me.. Very drinkable as the alcohol was well hidden.
