I've had this on draft at brewery, and just had a bottle, review from bottle. I love this beer, when i first had a sample I thought, wow, as good as Hopslam. So finally they distribute this in bottles to VA and I could do a side by side, it stand right up there. Nice head, a bit of lacing, not no too much head. Golden color, a hint of orange.

The smell on this is amazing, beautiful hops but not over powering.

The taste, first taste the hops punches you in the mouth, in a good, way, them mellows out, then comes back for more. This is all in the first taste. It's got a bit of a heavy mouthfeel.

Overall, this beer is fantastic, I noticed as it warmed up, it got better and better, I would have one of these a day. Anyone who is a hop head needs to add this to their must try.
