Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Uanof on 04-12-2014

The recent unearthing of Titanoboa was, for many, the most exciting fossil discovery since the T-Rex. A 48 foot snake that ate crocodiles with no effort deserves to have a beer named after it. After 60 million years in hiding, Titanoboa has been reborn as a triple IPA with 10 different hops added at 10 different times in the brewing process. The different additions create an aromatic and flavorful hop experience meant to counteract the bitterness. Featuring over 5 lb of hops per barrel, this is our most complex beer we have done to date and is truly the bigger, meaner brother of Gigantophis. Ideally served at 50 – 55°F.

Golden-amber, with a lacy head. Tropical fruit aroma. Leans toward the sweet side. Medium low carbonation and medium body. Lots of malt and lots of hops to balance. More earthy with the hops imparting a fair amount of bitterness but little in the way of aromatics.

Chilled 22 oz. bomber into 33 cl tulips.

Look- clear deep amber with a hint of red. Pours with a finger and a half of off-white head that falls to a cm or so of foam that hangs around. A few globs of suds cling to the glass, but I wouldn't call it lacing.

Smell- Floral, light citrus, some booze and honey. More pungent and piney as it warms, along with a more pronounced nutty aroma. Reminds me of Cigar City for some reason.

Taste- Surprisingly and intriguingly complex malt mixes it up with the hop bite. Nougat, vanilla, lemon pith, clover honey. Fades to apricot and a touch of booze. Aftertaste is like honeyed spruce tea. I mentioned honey a few times - while it's sweet-ish, it's not overly so. More vanilla and nutty malt emerge as it warms.

Mouthfeel- Full, medium carbonation. Warm, a touch boozy but not offensively so. Easy drinking.

Overall- Well, I'm surprised. They put a lot into this beer, and it shows. Well above average, not a stupid hop bomb like most Triple IPAs- lots of flavor and complexity, on par with some of the better barleywines I've had but distinctly American. Definitely recommended.
