My 800th review! "End of the World" batch 12.21.12. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Pours a frothy, 2 finger white head with excellent retention. Beer is a clear orange-goldenrod. Lacing is thick, layered and stringy with great cling. Phenomenal in every aspect.
Nose is intense citrus, pine with a sappy hop presence and some cane sugar to finish things off. Nice and clean.
Opens citrus, pine, cane sugar and a light hoppiness. A slight astringency at the start that mellows into some sap hop bitterness. Middle is more citrus and grapefruit with a bitter finish and a hoppy, fruity aftertaste. Really balanced.
Light bodied with ample carbonation. Lively but smooth in the mouth and warm and aggressive going down. Finish is slightly messy with a lingering aftertaste. Hides the ABV exceptionally well.
This is just a very well crafted, all-around solid IIPA. Great look, clean nose, balanced flavor profile and an excellent feel. I'm glad I got the chance to try this one.

Served from tap into a shaker. Poured a golden yellow with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, grass, grass hop, citrus hop, and spicy hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, grass hop, grass, onion hop, and spicy hop. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. This one had a pretty big explosion of hops going on here while still managing to be refreshing. There was quite a nice balance here as well. The aroma is quite inviting and the flavor has just enough hoppy resin in it to remind you of the style it falls under. A really well done brew that I would definitely have again.
Serving type: on-tap
