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.

Lightly hazy orange with slow rising carb trails. Compact layer of white foam, some minimal lace around the edges.

Pungent aroma of passionfruit and tangerine, tropical and citrusy. Amarillo is pretty classic, though this seems more exotic than I remember in other single hopped brews.

Taste is lightly sweet at first, full of fruity hoppy goodness. Passionfruit, tangerine, grapefruit. Pale malt middle, fairly light feel for a DIPA. Slightly sticky on the lips with a light residual resinous bitterness. Overall easy drinking and better than a couple others in the series.

A: Darker shade of yellow in color. Clear. Forms a moderate sized head. Good retention. Lots of lacing.

S: Aroma is fairly citrusy, but more like a "dry" citrusy as opposed to a "juicy" citrusy. Grapefruit, orange zest, vegetal spice. Maybe a little bit of green grass.

T: Taste is similar. On the drier side of things. Grapefruit, citrus pith and pale malts. Mildly spicy (hop spicy, not yeast spicy). A little orange and just a touch of resiny pine on the back end.

M: Medium bodied, but a bit light for a DIPA. Bitterness is fairly restrained as well for the style. Medium carbonation.

O: Good stuff. Not mind blowing, but definitely good stuff. And a bit of wheat and you've got yourself an Imperial Gumballhead.
