Extra from SwillinBrew. Thanks, Gil - this was a great bonus! Split with a buddy pre-gaming for a trip downtown to see a hockey game.
Golden orange, nice snow-white head.
Smells like heaven. Nice blend of peaches, oranges, pineapple, and other tropical citruses. Wow, the anticipation is killing me!
Tastes like heaven. Almost perfect. Malt takes a back seat, but is there with a little toast. The star of the show is the over-the-head smash from the hops. This is brilliant! I'm getting a ton of grapefruit and orange, plus the bitterness hits on a few peaks before subsiding. Guiness dudes, say it with me, This is brilliant - BRILLIANT!
Mouth is good, not great, but good. A touch too sharp, but the right consistency and feel going down.
Drinkability is great for a stronger hop bomb. Sure it wrecks a little havok on the pallate, but it doesn't leave me dried out or over-stimulated. I loved this world class beer!
