22 ounce bomber, "express delivered" from my buddy Beenken straight from the brewery less than a week ago. Many thanks to Matt for picking these up for me!
A: Pours a light shade of golden yellow with a frothy white head on top that formed that "pancake batter" bubbles in the middle that I like.
S: Wow. Huge nose of citrus, mango, and a hint of grapefruit. Pungent, potent, delightful hops dominate the nose.
T: And at the first taste, this beer does not disappoint, but rather lives up to it's lofty reputation. What is most surprising is just how "light" this beer is, it's not at all thick or heavy.
The hops dominate here. The malts stay waaay way out of the way. And the hops here are artistically rendered. It starts with citrus notes and perhaps some flavors of mango. I even pick up on a hint of Lemon. Then grapefruit and dry-hopped bitterness ride in like a wave to carry this beer to a finish line. Just exceptional.
M: Light and bubbly, this beer finishes with a good tongue-coating of hop oils.
D: Incredibly high. This beer sings my favorite song: hops. It's light, smooth, and full of hoppy flavor. Highly repeatable.
