I imagine this is what it would be like to get punched in the face by a hop. The pine needles stick in the aftertaste. But the caramel malty stuff balances, and you certainly catch that 11 percent ABV

Rich sweet & sticky malt profile makes it sweet & full bodied up front. Drier would make this great.Then the intense hop bittering in the mid palette & finish. Hop flavors are primarily tropical fruits, orange and pine. Some grassy & pith notes in back.
