ACBF pour

A-Palate Mallet pours a darker orange color with a minimal, white head.

S-A heavy scent of hops. It's got the textbook citrus and pine combo but it also has some tropical fruit notes. Pungent hop aroma.

T-Bitter grass, orange, grapefruit and pine. A little bit of peach as well as some leafiness. Caramel and bread malt that isn't exceedingly sweet.

M-Bitter and dry. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Lingering flavor. Medium to full bodied.moderate carbonation.

O-I enjoyed this beer a bunch. One of the more memorable beers from ACBF. Nothing that hasn't been done before but they still did it right.

Poured a white lacy head...the nose is beautiful...amazing pine grapefruit pineapple with a strong banana peel finish. very smooth slight alchohol finish. Not very bitter and well balanced. I only wish I could get this stuff in a package store!!! This is a must have beer

On tap at 2 Bros. Pours a murky burnt orange color with an inch of head. Tons of lacing. The aroma is sweet caramel malts, bread, and some spicy and herbal hops. The taste is the herbal and spicy hop bitterness upfront. Floral notes as well. Toasted bread with some lightly toasted malts, peach and caramel. There is a lot going on here but it balances out fairly well. Spicy bitter hops at the finish with a good deal of pine. Mouthfeel is a bit on the heavy side with a lot of carbonation. Slightly boozey tasting. Overall, a solid Imperial IPA I look forward to buying some cans of.
