From notes on 1/16/14

Lite ruby in color. Very clear, no particles. Strong hoppy smell. Earthy aroma. Very bitter. I know you can only taste bitterness to 80 IBUs, but this just seems so much more bitter than others I've had in that range. Earthy flavor. Hops also come through. Hops and bitterness are noticed throughout you’re mouth. I like it. This really will wreck your palate.

Pours burnished golden orange. Half an inch of off-white foam head.

Smells like raw, bracing pine, an acrid pungent citrus, and a hint of smelted grapefruit.

Taste is just hop wrenching, with a big bold pine needle slurry mixed with citrus rinds and a bunch of bitterness. No real malt presence.

Good. Probably best green flash beer I can think of. Nice bubbly mouthfeel to lighten it up.
