Dark gold to an almost shiny copper color with a fluffy cap of white foam. A very aggressively hopped and dry beer. Tons of pine from start to finish. Some grapefruit at the core but very clean and straightforward on being a hop buzzsaw.

12oz bottle in Long Beach. Not sure how a beer with Nelson, citra, simcoe can remain mediocre, but this one does it. Sort of oily hop tone meets a sweet caramel touched malt bill. Earthy. OK.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nose has strong overripe and spoiling pineapple. Some scallion or chive funk in the nose as well. Pine.
Mouthfeel is full and soapy. Palate has scallion and chive. Biscuits, graham cracker pie crusts and brown wheat toast. Hops are spicy, pine sap and then with a light lingering bitter mainly at the back of the throat.
Overall, hop forward with spicy, herbaceousness, with a toasted malty middle that is abbreviated then a strident bitter that is equally brief before fading into a citrus peel like aromatic bitter.
