My brother gave a bottle from his six pack, thanks. Poured into a standard pint glass. Dark orange red color. Thin white head. Not a lot of carbonation or lacing noted. Smell is up front with pine and citrus. The flavor is certain hop forward. The trio of hops used certainly is potent. But it's not overwhelming, which I enjoyed. There was a sweetness from the malt that gave a nice counterbalance to the tartness of the hops. Pretty smooth on the palate for such a hoppy beer, over 7% no less. You could tell that this beer was brewed with a degree of finesse to be able to achieve this level of retrained assertiveness.

Poured into a snifter after a long crappy day.

A: Clear amber with a creamy, half finger head that leaves a few bubbles in its wake. Minimal lacing.

S: Floral, piney hops, bananas.

T: Follows nose. Smooth, not overly bitter. Grapefruit. Malts. A slightly bitter finish, but I didn't mind.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: Really nice. Would drink again. I see why this one's such a hit.
