A-Gold colored....white lace...white head....good carbonation level.

S-Kind of an odd, musty aroma at first....maybe some overripe (rotten?) tropical fruits like papaya and mango as well....

T-There's some overripe tropical fruitness to this...candied like sweetness...hint of floral like hops....low on the bitterness.

M-Slightly sour on the finish....medium to full bodied..

O-Doesn't taste like an IPA. It's drinkable but for the $ I spent on this bomber it was not a wise purchase.

Pours a dark amber color with one finger of head that had good retention before settling to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass.

Aroma is not that appealing. Has a bit of a antiseptic, bleach, band-aid smell. Smells like the brewery after cleaning. Once you get past that initial smell, some nice malty aromas come into play. Not much for appealing hop aroma.

Much better tasting. Hoppy and bitter but plenty of malt sweetness to balance things out. I pick out citrus and tropical fruit, with caramel and dark fruit from the malt. Finishes on the slightly bitter side with a lingering grainy aftertaste.

Has a bigger body for a beer of this ABV level. Also well carbonated which is slightly surprising for an Excelsior growler.

They backed off the IPA claim and for good reason. Good balance of flavors. Now if they could just do something about the aroma. Like all of their beers, it is flawed in some way.

Serving type: growler
