A: A moderately hazy, unfiltered looking dark golden beer that produces a good head stand when poured. The two finger of off white head is made of rocky foam with very good retention.

S: A huge citrus hops nose with pineapple, lemon, resinous pine and a dry hopped herbal aroma dominating. There is a medium-low caramel malt sweetness and some low floral alcohol notes there as well but this is all about the hops.

T: An aggressive hops bitterness with a strong citrus hops flavor and enough malt for support. The hops flavors match the aroma with pineapple, lemon and some pine. The malt brings a low caramel flavor but the balance is pretty bitter. The aftertaste is of hops bitterness and lemon.

M: A medium bodied beer with a medium-strong level of carbonation. There is a moderate alcohol warmth on the palate although the alcohol is fairly well hidden overall.

O: We have a hophead winner here, this one makes my short list of awesome beers I've met this year. An aggressively bitter beer that showcases citrus hops but remains balanced and doesn't get harsh.

Thanks to ChadMc3 for this one. Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a hazy orange-gold color with about 1/2 inch of off-white head that had good retention and better than moderate lacing.

A blast of pine hops hit the nose first, with solid citrus hops right behind them. There was a low, but noticeable, malt profile. On the tongue, the pine was smooth in the front, mixed with the citrus in the middle and had a sharp citrus bite at the back of the palate., The low malt didn't offer much of a counter point, and the bitterness lingered at the back of the mouth.

The body was a bit fuller than typical for the style, but wasn't heavy at all. Drinkability was very good, especially if you're a fan of bitter IPAs. Overall, a pretty good brew, one that would be in my regular rotation if it were local to me. A must try if you see it.
