Botteld. Clear amber color, frothy/creamy head. Piney, floral and peachy hop aroma, notes of strawberries too. Round maltiness with some medium dark caramel malt flavors, slightly toasted. Quite heavy bitterness with resiny bite that lasts forever. Medium body, slightly oily texture and smooth carbonation. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium amber, sparkingly clear color, tall, persistent mustard color head.
Intense herbal nose.
Full body, dense flavor concentration, balanced mouthfeel if you can tolerate this much bitterness, lingering palate.
Very bitter, dry but not completely so, bright acidity,
Assertive flavor of grapefruit, herbs,
Extreme beer class, I like it, but would welcome more sweetness, with the risk of making it less distinctive.

Bottle. Wow ... big time dry-hopped mushiness ... chewy, masculine and bitter-forward, as much as a beer can be. This is a beautiful beer all the way around ... perfect visuals ... rich orange/amber, frothy big head. Both the aroma and flavor is piled with layers and layers of oily hops. Outstanding.
