Very clear copper pour. Medium white head with some lacing. Super floral hop aroma with lots if citrus as well. It smells like putting your nose in a just opened pack of hops. Taste is like "hop tea." Very bitter. Floral and citrusy. Like sucking on a lemon. Freaking awesome for a hop head.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy amber color with white head. Big fruity hop aroma with citrus, mango and pineapple. Big hop forward taste. Starts off a citrus then a caramel malt middle then BOOM! Huge pine hop flavor and massive bitterness. The bitterness lingers on the palate. This is the most bitter beer I’ve had in a while.

Pours a hazy, dark burnt orange with a reddish hue. Has a frothy cream colored head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Very good looking beer. Aroma is packed with big hops, pine resin, faint notes of citrus. Taste is intensely bitter. Beer coats your whole palate in a sheet of bitter hops. I had this beer a couple years ago and I don’t remember being this intense. Finish has a bit of citrus rind and molasses to it. Mouthfeel is full and well carbonated. Overall this beer is very good for what it is. Definitely not for everyone.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
1pt 6oz bottle poured into a tulip pub glass. Initially, bread, chalk, and caramel aromas come off this one, but the bread and chalk disappear leaving the caramel as the primary aroma note. Sweet fleshy fruit (mango primarily comes to mind) comes through as well with a nice floral hoppy crescendo. An undertone of blueberry muffins comes through as it warms. It pours an effervescent, clear honey orange color with a swiss cheese, light, but creamy head that sticks around throughout most of the drink and leaves behind an abundant, splotchy lacing. The medium-high, but smooth, bitterness is balanced nicely by a medium malty sweetness - the two weave in and out throughout the palate. The full body is oily, and a bit stick, with a fairly low carbonation. It starts out with a floral and resin note which turns to citrus fairly early. It doesn’t take long before a raisin / fig quality dominates the palate. It finishes with a nutty with a light, mellow resin dusting. By the beginning of the aftertaste, this mellow resin turns to a strong pine note with an earthy / gravely feel to it. The longterm aftertaste is a thick and chewy toasty, pine, and caramel combination. Surprisingly (and dangerously) drinkable for a "hop bomb."
