Very hazy pour. Opaque. Couple of fingers of head. Great retention, lacing follows.
Huge aroma. Mango, orange, pineapple and passion fruit. Dank. Bread/biscuit malt seeps through for balance.
The taste doesn't veer far from the aroma. Biscuit grains are more pronounced. Tropical hop profile bursts in the mouth but is slightly subdued compared with the aroma. Smooth, fruity, mildly dry finish without much bitterness. Balanced though.
Medium body with light end of medium carbonation. Still enough mouth feel to hold up the beer. Complex hop profile.
Aroma just doesn't go to 11, it goes to 14. Easily my new favorite beer for the "new profile" of American IPAs. Still can't believe the neighbor brought me back a six pack from his vacation not knowing what he had. Enjoy!
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver.'" - Jack Handy
