When I got this beer, there wasn’t much hype about it. Since then, it’s almost impossible to find on shelves. I first heard about the brewery when I was listening to “Steal This Beer” podcast, so I was excited to bring this one home.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A pithy explosion of aroma and flavor, beyond hazy, and loaded with Mosaic and Citra to the point of stickiness.”
Random: I would love to try this one on tap.
The beer poured with a finger and a half of white head that was incredibly thick. It took forever to dissipate and left some lacing on the glass. The body was bright yellow and very hazy, as expected. There wasn’t much carbonation visible due the amount of cloudiness the beer had. The nose was strong with fresh grapefruit pith and peel. It had some grass and a touch of a green, herbal character as well. There was a tinge of mango too. The taste was incredibly juicy. It had lots of fresh grapefruit juice and pith up front. It had a generous amount of tropical fruit with mango and pineapple with pine hops at the end of the sip. The alcohol didn’t make an appearance at all. The body was on the thicker side with a lot of carbonation. It had a lengthy, but sticky finish with tropical fruit. This beer was truly outstanding. I had no expectations for it when I picked it up, but I went through the four-pack ridiculously fast. If you see this on the shelves, grab it. You won’t be disappointed.
