Very smooth and hoppy. Good medium body and finish. Hoppy and great depth of flavor.

Sometimes this fluctuates depending on the year, but always very good! profile - March 11, 2013
Piney, fruity nose, foamy white head with nice lacing, resiny, slick mouthfeel, strong pine notes blended with a citrusy yet bready body. Great citrus hop character in the back of the throat that leaves you wanting more. Lives up to the hype, easily best glass of beer I've had. On tap at monks 3/11/13 after a 3 hour wait.

Brown sugar/ Belgium sweetness, light hop taste, light crispness. 2013 brew

Pours to a thin, sub-one finger head from the tap. Beautiful orange color, with good carbonation. Smell: citrus, tropical fruits, some booze. Taste: start tropical, moves beautifully through the mouth and ends with only a moderate hop bite. The boozing as can't be detected until there is a warming feeling in the throat. Silky smooth mouthfeel.

Super fresh hop smell on the nose. Reminiscent of fresh cut grass. Extremely smooth however hop bitterness masked by sweet notes. Great beer but would rather drink others at the same price point.

Beautiful smell. Nice and light. Piney, floral, bright and cold. Bitterness and hops all the way through. Nice mouthfeel of hops but not metallic at all. Hell of a beer. A triple to the definition of the class. Hops grow a bit sweeter as it goes. Not flashy, but what a beer. Delicious

Amazing! Huge hop bouquet, perfectly balanced, no alcohol burn. Deep, rich flavor. Not too bitter. Best beer I've ever had. Closest is Stone Enjoy By.
