22oz bomber received in a trade with JustinQ thanks!
Appearance Pours a tawny caramel to russet orange and is quite cloudy no doubt from dry hopping. The crown is 1 finger, white, shows little retention and some lace.
Smell: Candied pineapple, tangelo orange, mango, and a touch of candied grapefruit, both bready and caramel malt, and a noticeable alcohol tinge.
Taste: Same as the nose but the hop bitterness and alcohol presence dominate which buries the subtle tropical fruit aromatics produced by the hops. I'd give it a 3.75 if I could so I'm rounding up a bit.
Mouthfeel: Thick side of medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: If this beer was fermented at a cooler temperature to control the alcohol presence I'd be happier with it. If the flavor was more like the nose it would have potential. It's still a good "over the top sting your palate winter type triple ipa" though.
Serving type: bottle
