Two 12oz bottles courtesy of the Arizona legend Tayner.
One of those bottles poured into a Four Peaks pint glass. Man I love branded glassware.
Smell, Wow. Big citrus hops with piney hops thrown into the mix.
Taste, is there malt in this brew? Big citrus and piney hops dominate. A firm malt backbone though keeps this beer in check. Aromatic and Crystal malt keeps this beer balanced and lends mucho complexity. Very forthright hop presence keeps smacking my taste buds around, while the sweet malt tries in vain to reign them in.
Overall, I don't know how to sum this up. Big citrus hops combined with a firm malt backbone. Pliny? Dreadnaught? Leatherlips? I'm sorry, but for the ABV you don't stand a chance. I'm adding this as a permanent "Wants". Wow is all I can say. Kudos to the brewers for masking such awesome hop presence.
I have a new favorite IPA. Sorry Leatherlips and Finest Kind IPA.
