Loads of citrusy hops in the nose. Note of chouffe yeast funkiness ... very aromatic. Moderate body, light crispness with a long smoothness. Quite bitter upfront ... citric, heavy herbal and tobacco hop flavor. Tight doughy biscuity malt lays underneath, mild kiss of honey like grain as well. Slight warming alcohol with a ghost like tropical fruit. Hint of phenols. Orangey hop finish complements the dry malt flavor in the end. This is one of those epic ales that I will always remember and want to go back to. Right up there with XX Bitter yet a boat load more hops.
