Really great homerun from this local brewery and something that was literally just bottled!

A strong deep gold pours from the bottle and forms a thick, soapy, white two finger head. Classic IPA burnt orange and a great looking beer.

I get a ton of sweet fruit on the top followed with a touch of pine. Tons of fruit here and it really dominates the hop profile.

The taste is slightly sweet on top followed by bitter pine flavors. There's a slightly passionfruit/kiwi/general tropical note that really makes this great. As it warms theres a very sweet malt profile lying underneath and my only qualm with the beer is that this is a bit strong. Still a really, really great IPA.

There's a certain thickness here that permeates and makes this beer come off heavier than a lot of easy drinking IPAs but it still turns out delightfully.

Finally something I love from Big Muddy. If this is the direction they are headed, I will happily be there for the future. At five bucks a bomber you cannot go wrong with this awesome, delicious IPA.
