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

Picked up a bottle in Durango, Colorado. I couldn't locate a bottle date or Best By date. Took the risk because I've been wanting to try Brazilian cerveja artesanal.

I get a big, foamy head on the pour that resembles soap bubbles at the sides, and a cloud at the top. Lace is plentiful. The body is copper and slightly cloudy.

There's a big grapefruit aroma on the nose, but it does smell slightly oxidized. Citrus prevails here and not much else.

Quite a loop I'm thrown for on the taste. The cane sugar offers an instantly noticeable and distinct, earthy sweetness that completely defies my sense's expectations. The big whiff of citrus I get as the glass approaches my nose takes a back seat. There's still some grapefruit-like hops, but they are taking a bit of a backseat on the flavor. I get some caramelized sugar and some caramel.

There's still plenty of bitterness to this IIPA, but it is tempered by the sugar. It's pretty unique, as I can't think of another beer like this. The body is medium but still drinkable and there's a long, bitter finish.

I call this a well-made beer with a unique twist that I'm always searching for in a beer, particularly an IPA. I'd drink this more often if it were available.
