Notes/Commercial Description:
This IIPA, the latest addition in our hop-highlighting NvU Epic Battle series, has a bright, fresh hop aroma, and a subtle bitterness, that has us all talking about how crushable this is. (DISCLAIMER: Please do not actually crush beer while still in bottle and cap is still on. It will hurt…not that we know) Drink early, drink often.

22oz bottle into Duvel tulip. Batch 330-332.Thanks again Pidzik12. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours burnt golden with a very dense and creamy looking off-white head that took forever to slowly fade a thick greasy film.
S: Huge citrus notes of orange cream sickle, sweet tangerine juice, and lightly bitter grapefruit rind. Creamy smelling with a slight bready pale malt backbone.
T: Follows the nose with dominating orange and tangerine juice, orange sherbet, and grapefruit. The finish is sweet and juicy, with fruit nectar, tons of grapefruit peel, faint lemon zest, and a touch of evergreen mint and pine. I get a slight hint of the bready malt base poking through the hops as well. The aftertaste is bittersweet, lingering, and a touch rough around the edges from the booze. There’s an overall leafy and green herbal quality, perhaps tea.
M: Medium full body, very low and slick carbonation, smooth, oily, greasy mouthfeel. The booze is slightly noticeable but not hot.
O: Very good. Drinks really well albeit slight rougher than other high ABV dipas. Very very good. Thanks Paul.
