16oz, no date but fresh
A: Nice chill hazed orange leading to deep orange color. Nearly two fingers if fluffy off white head. Great carbonation. Leaving great lacing sheeting.
S: Wow. Really dank tropical dripping fruits: mango, papaya, over ripe peach, pineapple. Some of that mixture of hops and malts "orange marmalade" character. Some pine hints.
T: Big huge hop bitterness up front. Really astringent and sharp. Some of those sweet dripping tropical fruit flavors. Definitely mango and papaya. There is some sweet malts boarding on bready to back up the huge hop package. Finish is fairly dry. Lingering hop sweetness.
M: It's a large medium. Has some body too it.
Serving type: can

You have to understand going into the Heavy Machinery Double IPA is that its meant to be an ass-kicker. This is Austin Beerworks 426 Hemi.
When you pour it, it is straight bronze. Light white head. Beautiful bronze, tough to see through it, but not cloudy.
When you engage the sniffer, you are gonna get hit with lots of action. You get lots of malt, decent citrus, and booze. Your nose is not misguiding you... This is exactly what you are in store for.
Taste: Be ready. Malt and booze hit hard at front, citrus, hops, and a lil carbo will ride you out the rest of the way. The bitter from the hops really reveal themselves at the mid-point, right when the malt dies off. A profound amount of action is happening once its in the jowls. This is the beauty of this brew.
The mouthfeel is full. Its a full commitment. Its edgy, cuz you are taking in big malt and big bitter.
Please take the time to appreciate the complexity of this beer. Its a huge brew, but there is so much going on. Don't just pass it off as boozy, let it warm up a little and let the other flavors come out and blow you away.
