Pours a hazy yellow with a fluffly two finger head that fades to a cap leaving behind tons of lace. Hops galore is what can easily describe the taste. Tons of orange, citrus, and some chronic in there, no grain to speak of. Citrus and Pine hit the pallate first followed by the wonderful pine and resinous flavors of the hops. A bit of crystal malt sweetness comes in at the end to help bring the beer together. This may as well be an IPA, which is where my one complaint comes. With the huge hop aroma and aftertaste I’d like a bit more malt to balance the beer out. All together a very good hop forward beer, may as well be an American IPA.
