Poured into my tulip. A beautiful copper color with some sediment at the bottom of the glass. Nice frothy thick white heading that left lacing all throughout the tasting.
Smell is insane you get a flash of the greener hops along with the heavy fruity notes,mango,papaya,pineapple. The nose reminds me alot of Hopslam.
Taste is sublime.Very much like the nose. Heavy fruity hop notes,slightest of caramel sweetness and high sugary alcohol that hurts the cavities.Slight boozey feeling towards the end. Citra hops are in full force here.
Mouth is very alive on the palate with excellent carbonation.A little syrupy but in no way a hassle.
A beautiful sweet treat. This will round out my top 3 IIPA's of all time. IF anyone can ship cases I will be willing to trade. Thanks to shir0043.
