08/28/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Just a taste. I have my doubts on this one. Not too hoppy - I can't abide aggressive hops - but there was a very heavy mouth feel that kind of slapped me going the other way. Not necessarily a deal killer but not something I'd use to home in on a sweet spot. Maybe in another time & another place the heavens will be in a more beneficially alignment, but for now...not so much.

I arrived and asked for a very hops and layperson gourd on the subject, I took this wonderful punch! Pity that access the region is restricted and expensive, but worth the shipping! I think everyone has to prove; then come talk here!

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Burnt orange, caramel colored body. The tan head is thick and foamy, leaving sticky lacing on the glass.

Aroma: Floral, spicy, and very peculiar. A musty, yet sweet note of honey coats over everything.

Taste: Warm alcohol comes through immediately, while the first note to hit the taste buds is a rather odd musty note. Fruity florals and earthy woods play a part, too. Sweet malts and perhaps the cane sugar come out in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied.

Overall: A bit of an odd one, this. Can't quite identify some if the strange notes at work.

Quick note: Most like a poor knock off of Enjoy By. Tasty but lacking in the flora/grapefruit aroma and not as malty sweet. Well balanced for the style.

600ml bottle served in a tulip glass.

A: Pours an orange to amber color with 3 fingers of a white foamy head with medium retention. Thick lacing left on the walls of the glass.

S: Very hoppy. Floral and earthy hops, with a hint of brown sugar, probably because of the rapadura. Some booze, passion fruit and citrus. Sweet fruitiness. Caramel malts are also apparent on this brew.

T: Hoppy bitterness, slight sweetness upfront which is quickly covered by the hoppiness. Alcohol shows up a little more in the palate. Orange zest, grassy, with a strong malt character.

M: Medium-bodied, with nice carbonation. Creamy with a boozy and grassy aftertaste.

O: Another great beer by Colorado. Usually I prefer more full-bodied Imperial IPAs, but this isn't by any means a bad beer. Interesting mixture with rapadura, and I love the fact that the malt has a strong character, they are not fully covered by the hops, like in other IPAs.

Picked this up in Jenks, OK USA...

So far everything else from these Brazilian Bad asses has rocked, hoping for the same...

Pours an effervescent amber with 3+ fingers of cream colored head. Near perfect head & lacing & stays effervescent

S: Ugh, some vegtal stuff up front, onions & grassiness. Orchard fruit as this warms, recovers a little bit

T: Rich maltyness, honey crisp apples, white grapes, grassy & lemony grassy hops mixing with a bit of honey malt & booze up front. Some woody hops as this warms, more orchard fruit & much dryness & a little leafy hops. Finishes super-fruity, a bit dry, & a faint crispness, plus leafy hops

MF: Thickish mouthfeel for the style, slight carbonation, doesn't skew hoppy.

Drinks alright, but not hoppy enough for me. I got to think the journey & possibly age, affected this. This is the first on from this brewery that has fell short for me, so I would try again, if knew it was fresh; or is it the sugar they used??? This didn't really thrill me
