Nitro pour @ Bar Gernika Boise ID. Served in a tulip snifter.
A: Attractive hazy orange colored body, with great head from the nitro and epic rings of lacing on the glass.
S: Muted at first, but there is a decent amount of tropical fruit and orange character buried along with some sweeter malt notes, possibly caramel.
T: Floral sensation of overripe fruit; peach, mango, tropical fruit, some orange/orange peel, some caramel in a malty backbone that shines through the hops. Bitterness is low for a DIPA.
MF: Smooth body, lower carbonation but creamy from the nitro. Tough to judge the heft with the nitro but its fairly medium bodied. No alcohol detected.
O: A more balanced offering for a hop-forward beer. Definitely decent, but not really memorable.
Serving type: nitro-tap

Got this at Whole Foods in DC. Release 78. From notes.
A - Poured slightly dark gold and bright. Good carbonation with two fingers of thick fluffy off white head. Great lace rings and a half finger of retention.
S - Citrus, sweet syrup, pineapple core, sweet malt.
T - Booze up front, prickly pineapple, sweet fruit, pine resin, alcohol was a bit much.
M - Good carbonation, medium to full body, boozy resinous finish was a bit harsh.
O/D - Too much for me. Possibly too old but the booze wasn't hidden at all and it makes it harsh with the hops. Hard to finish.

22oz bomber with no date. it's hopulent release #66, so after i look it up i find out it's a year old. that's why it was so cheap.
crack it open and smell the dank vegetal scent of a hop cone's armpit. see the unfiltered goodness and foamy head. taste the boozy hop juice, and wish it were fresher.
