Had on-tap at Barleycorn Asheville. Served in a pint glass.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Resilient, randomly patterned lacing.

S- Big juicy hop aroma that's musty and dank. Slightly sweet smelling.

T- The hop flavor is decidedly grassy and not very in-your-face but the bitterness is definitely there and lingers a good while. Decent malt backbone to balance that's a bit bready and sweet. The ABV isn't incredibly noticeable.

M- Pretty sharp and dry with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- I wouldn't necessarily call this a "death by hops" beer but it's certainly assertive and the malt provides a near-perfect balance to the aggressive hop content.
