The nose on this one is pretty nice. Shows good character without getting obnoxious and nice subtle tones that still give enough to keep it interesting. Flavor profile is definitely a palate wrecker as it's intense and rich and thick and leaves a lot on your tongue. But not so out there that its a laborious drinker. I can dig it.

Bottled on 12-11-12, poured on 1-20-13 out here on the east coast. Pours a pretty copper, small head,And lots of bubbles throughout. Smells very nice. Great smell with tons of pine and grapefruit. Wow on the taste. Huge bitter pine here--meets the level of Short's Huma--and balanced in excellent fashion with sweet citrus. Goes down with a sweet candy-like quality, with just the right carbonation. Medium mouthfeel, slight prickles. Right on for style and hit the palate wrecking they were going for here. Really like this one.
