My goodness, is it possible for this beer to be even sexier than the Eastern Goddess depicted on the wonderfully artistic label? Short answer-YUP. And here's why...This brew simply explodes out of the glass. Honestly, from a good 2 feet away I can clearly pick up juicy, candied grapefruit and tangerine rinds on a bed of sticky, wet, dank grass. And buddy, that is a heavenly scent for any lupulin-lover. Come on AXE, make a body spray that even comes close to this and you will have yourselves a whole new market open up. That juicy, dank goodness percieved by the nose faithfully carries over to the tongue which is simply not ready to wrap itself around the multitude of orgasmic flavor components presented by the first sip. WHAMMY! It is simply a rush of pungent, resinous, citrusy ninja warriors that race through your mouth, tossing ninja-stars of bitterness at your teeth, gums and tongue. But then the Yakuza show up and lay waste with thier malt-spewing submachine guns; about 30 rounds per second if I had to guess. What a riot! BUt almost as quickly as it starts, it is finished, with both parties slipping back into the shadows with suprising grace and nobility. If that poorly structured metaphoric scene didn't make much sense, here is the utilitarian translation: this is a magnificant beer that is brimming with everything an IPA drinker could want while remaining incredibly drinkable pint after pint. I should know, it is on-tap right now in my kegerator. Yeah, I ain't going to be too productive this week. Thank you again and again Avery, and please keep this beer in your portfolio.
