4.09/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

The beer pours a darker, golden orange, almost candied brown in color. As the beer pours it forms a nice head of small, off-white bubbles that stick to the sides of the glass and create a blanket of lacing as the head mellows down to a half-a-finger’s-width in height. In body, the beer is clear of particles, with just a light haze and a darkness that slightly obscures the other side of the glass, while still remaining transparent. On the nose, the beer is hugely dank with light fruity and resinous notes touching the sides of the smell. The Citra hops come through loud and clear on my nose, with an earthy dankness, while the Galaxy hops give some stone and tropical fruit notes. When agitated, distinct mango scents burst on the nose alongside light pineapple and nectarine notes. Malt is mellow beneath the beautiful hop smell, providing a nice caramel scent and some slight saltiness. On the tongue, the beer tastes nicely bitter and fruity, yet dry with a light, herbal saltiness on the back of the taste. In flavor, the beer begins as light tropical fruits with a touch of caramel malts, this moves into medicinal bitters, which are quickly buried beneath dank, resinous hops with a touch of mango and salt biscuit. The beer’s finish is properly bitter and piney, with citric grapefruit and touches of stone fruit coming through. In the mouth, the beer feels medium in body, with a little bit of jelling on the tongue. Carbonation is lightly prickly at first, but soft and smooth overall. The mouth is left nicely dry and arid, with a little bit of saliva on the edges and a good bitter resin coating the tongue. Overall, this is a nice sipping, heavy/almost imperial/double IPA. The dankness on the front of the taste is a little too strong for me, but it mellows into some nice complexity that make it interesting to drink. The herbal saltiness from the dank flavors is also a little off-putting, but again, the finish is smooth and interesting and has me coming back for more. Another fine beer from Pretty Things!
