batch 7 thanks to the Coppermine Pub
super nice and clean white head, sticky as hell bubbles cling like an ex, dark straw and crystal clear, just a trace of bubbles floating up, the head fades out pretty quickly, nothing much to look at...
hop cone. (period)
jeezus, pine sol bomb
flash bang of alpha almost to the point of acrid-ity, the malts exist but man are they fighting for air, you can also pick up a touch of the alcohol, really nice hop nose but sort of one note-ish
incredibly full mouthfeel, coats the tongue, all the mishaps in the nose are not problems here, this drinks really smooth but yet does remind you at the end that the ABV is right there, the bitterness is nice but not killing my taste buds, subtle carbonation with the weight really just makes this too damn silky, I really am reminded of when I first tried Ruination but this is much smoother but just as deadly, this really has a backbone to support the ABV and ridiculous use of hops, this keeps drawing you back in.
sometimes beers are reputations only, this shows some really nice maturity in craft, there is some ways to go to a perfect brew... but man alive just the drinking phase of this one is damn skippy.. meaning? don't pass this one up, stone could by all means just sit on their ass, but they don't, and I respect that. They keep coming up to bat.
