Big ups to DrDogBeer for the chance to try this one via Growling at the moon. Served in the S.A. Imperial Pilsner glass that accompanied the growler
A. Golden/ amber body with fantastic white head that lingers and leaves a nice lacing around the glass the whole way through. the way I'd picture the perfect IPA to be
S. A variable hops explosion. Hops, Hops, and more Hops. Citrus and spice. Almost reminds me of the fantastic aromas of Nugget Nectar.
T. Hops and a tingly grapefruit rind type taste on the front leading into a smooth malty type finish. A true joy to drink. no harshness at all even with the 7.0% ABV. alcohol is unbelievably well hidden.
M. Very good mouthfeel, smooth and full
D. For a beer with this ABV, Drinkability is insane. I could try to session this, though you'd probably have to drag me out of the bar in an inebriated state. Extremely drinkable.
I've tried the two hearted ale, hop devil and many others from the style. This one can hang with all the IPA big boys. In fact, this will Probably take a lot of the heavy hitters from the beer style and open-handed pimp smack them down. I only wish I had more access to this as it was one of the most enjoyable beers I've had in a long, long time.
Serving type: growler
