Overall: 13/20

It poured a hazy medium brown that supported a large light brown rocky head that was bellowing above the top of the glass. It dissipated at a rapid pace leaving just a little residue behind, although it was enough for some really excellent lacing.

The aroma was unusually complex with a mild scent of toasted malts, a nice dose of piney hops and an earthy yeast with hints of sweet fruit, honey and a nice citrus note.

The taste had kind of a sweet-acidic flavor with a slight fruity note from the onset. Then it slowly but firmly became extremely bitter with a nice strong hop presence and a touch of citrus at the end.

Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body and nice and dry in texture with a subtle soft carbonation.

Overall a unique tasting brew that was very enjoyable. A must try for a Hop Head.
