Straight off the bat, I'd love to say that I really enjoy this beer.
It's a great rendition of the style has amazing drinkability and is just absolutely a joy to drink.
I matched this one up with a Olde Worlde Rocky Patel Maduro cigar. They really went well together and balanced out the flavors nicely.
Upfront layers of sticky malt sweetness with hints of chocolate and coffee. Luscious dark fruits with infused tangy citrus hop zest. Rich tobacco and leather near the finish. Ends with some toasty infused nutty richness. Very pleasing.
I really enjoy this collaboration. From 3 dominating West Coast hop bomb geniuses. Surprising, and inventive to say the least. While some may say this needs a bit more thickness on the mouthfeel, I think it displays an enormous amount of complexity and drinkability. That a heavier mouthfeel would otherwise dwindle. So on that note, I would without a doubt recommend this one for a change of pace from your normal hop bombs.
