On tap. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head leaving laces. Fresh and flowery hops in the nose. Medium body, very fruity and flowery with an extremely hoppy and dry finish. Bitter indeed. The driness makes this beer highly drinkable. 200910

Very hazy amber beer, decent cream coloured head. Palate is dry and a little crisp. Rich deep orange peel marmalade, pretty bitter. Not much else going on. Finishes dry and minerally with a long long bitter finish. Aggressive and lacking balance but as I love hops - pretty drinkable.
