My second growler ever and my first growler review. I took a whiff straight from the growler at first and it felt like I was bitch slapped with sharp, bitter, tangy hops. I really flinched at it. Anyways pour is a massive erupting foamy off white head. Took me a few minutes to nearly fill my Duvel tulip. Body is a rich amber between sunny orange. Smell is a bit more subdued in the glass lol. Smells of sweet, spicy, grassy, pineapple and tangerine hops. One of the sweeter more citrusy IPA's I have smelled with a earthy/grassy twist.
The grassy bitter hops is quite sharp upon the first drink and heavily bitter in the aftertaste but not in a bad way. Sweet pineapple/grapefruit with a sugary twist make a fairly brief and sudden appearance in the middle. I know IPA"s are supposed to be a bit aggressive on carbonation but this may be just, just a tad too much and there is a noticeable alcohol burn but pretty subdued for the gravity. Someone once compared it to angel tears but I think it is what Chuck Norris tears would taste like if he cried.
Serving type: growler
