Bottle found at Khourys Liquor in Las Vegas, NV. Poured into a snifter.
Appearance- it's a dark orange honey color. Not much head, but creamy looking.
Smell- it has a resin type sweetness, malt notes, a bit of forest like hop note...not very strong of a hop smell. Surprisingly not heavy on hops which I thought would be prevalent.
Taste- taste is definitely hoppy. It evolves into a few stages of bitterness- a orange peel type of bitter, then grassy, then a medicinal almost quality and leaves a lingering back on the throat bitter. That's the only time I taste a bit of the characteristics I smelled. The front has a mild sweetness left on the palette while the back contains the bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel- Theres mild carbonation in the front which is fine and helps the hops flavors develop. I am not too sure I like the after effects of the sip...the back of the throat bitter is really lingering in an unpleasant way. It's almost stuck to the back of the throat making it feel dry yet wet from salivating at the same time.
Drinkability- Hrmm...? Share this bottle with a friend perhaps. I don't really find this to be very pleasant enough to even finish my half. It's wrecking my throat and mouth without much enjoyable payoff.
I am impressed that there is a "drinkable" 1000IBU beer, however I am not sold on it. There are other mean hop machines out there I'm happy with thats easily attainable. Glad I got one, but this is one for the "I've had that!" list and not to be bought again.
