COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This tawny-orange ale immediately assults the senses with the character of hops from the Pacific Northwest. An aroma that combines grapefruit pith and pine resin foreshadows a strongly bitter beer. The flavor is spicy and juicy with citrus dominating over honey and floral notes, then giving way to a dry, chalky bitterness. The almost sweet finish is accentuated by the strength of the alcohol.

hotstuff (5233) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Rated on 11-02-2016. Bottle-Release #37. The appearance is a medium sized semi-fizzy off-white head that is mostly lasting throughout my rating, transparent amber body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, pine hops, grassy, grapefruit, spicy, tropical fruit, and caramel malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, pine hops, spicy, tropical fruit, bready, boozy, caramel malt, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel of this beer is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium-full bodied. A very good beer with a moderate bitter, hoppy aftertaste. The flavors blend together very, very well making this a beer that is worth trying and a beer that I would purchase again.
