I had this beer on tap and I don't know what else to say other than I think that this is one of the best IPA's ever made. I reviewed this as a bottle but honestly that didn't prepare me for how much better it was on tap.
A: Golden, perfect, foamy head. Lots of lacing.
S: Amazing bouquet of hops, with a slight sweet smell.
T: Best I've ever had, bar none. There is no other DIPA that tastes anywhere near as balanced as this one. It is literally the perfect combination of all those great IPA flavors we know and love - bitter, grapefruit, sweet, sour, flowerey. As far as flavor, I'm sure the famous Stone Ruination would overpower this beer in terms of sheer hop content and power, but I would literally take this any day over the ruination. It is lacking absolutely nothing.
M: Low carbonation = smooth, smooth mouthfeel. There is literally nothing offensive in here. If you wanted to, you could straight up chug this, as it literally has no indication that it actually contains any alcohol, but with a nice mouthfeel like this, you'll want to swirl it around and let it warm up and enjoy every single drop.
This is the highest review I have ever given any beer, but it is deserved, in my opinion.
Serving type: on-tap
