Very excited to try this one and thanks to BA MaltyLareau (Dave) for getting this out to me to sample. This is the one that I think might end up right there w/ Heady Topper.
Pours a golden in color w/ a 1 finger white head that produces medium amounts of sticky lacing. Aromas of heavy pear, mandarin orange, pineapple, and mild pine. The flavor was of big pear/pear juice up front, leading into pineapple/mango/melon, and finishes w/ very mild resinous bitterness (almost non-existent). Medium bodied and finishes very clean and juicy. High drinkability on this one due to the juiciness, very refreshing.
Overall/Verdict, awesome, extra juicy DIPA from this tiny brewery. One of the better, if not the second best DIPAs I have had the pleasure of sampling next to Heady. This beer lived up to my expectations and is only a notch below the great Heady. Despite being similar to Heady in my scoring this beer is quite the different animal, where Heady is a dry grapefruit bomb this is a juicier pear bomb. In the end, this single hopped beer really showcased the massive pear flavor that can be derived from Mosaic hops.
