No one can deny the beer climate is changing. Extreme bittering patterns and massive flavor oscillations are the new normal.

cbfobes (2270) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at Dexters, pours a clear copper with a thick egg shelled colored head with thick lacing in the glass, the aroma had quite a bit of citrus and hops mixed in with the caramel and sweetness, the flavor has way more hops than I was expecting it to, huge hop and resin front end with tropical fruit in the finish, slick mouthfeel, nice stuff.
