Served in tulip at Three Floyds on June 13, 2011.
A: Pours mostly clear pale amber with no obvious effervescence. White head collapses quickly, but leaves sticky sheets of lacing on sides of tulip.
S: Juicy, fresh, pungent hops. Overripe peaches, nectarines, sweet tarts. A little spiciness. Malts? Forget about it! Palate, prepare for utter destruction.
T: Some sweet, steely caramel malts on front end of palate. Unsurprisingly, fruity/hoppy notes strike quickly and hard, reminding me of a triple IPA (think Double Crooked Tree), something I've described previously as hop detergent or hop liqueur. Not as bitter as I expected, but make no mistake, this bad boy is hop-forward. Some spiciness and earthy notes, too.
M: Medium-heavy body and medium carbonation. Super creamy. Bubbles fill mouth.
O: I'm stunned this is only 8.5 abv. It is a leviathan of a beer. Little beers that drink like bigger beers always rate well for me, but this is almost too much. Still, really well done, although drinkability is definitely below average.
Serving type: on-tap
