look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, pine, citrus. Taste is very aggressive hops, citrus, some pine sand resin, a touch of alcohol. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a good beer, and I like my hops, but this one was just a bit over the top for me. Consider my palate wrecked.

Really hoppy initial taste with a bite to it. It kind of tastes like Lagunitas sucks mixed with stone ipa. Pretty bitter. not bad
