Very pleased to have finally had the opportunity to try this beer. No doubt it was on my IPA/DPA bucket list. Enjoying this bomber after some interesting meetings.
Not a great deal of head forms as I pour into y Charleston Beer Exchange glass. Bright Orange color with a thickness to the color. A few suds in the glass, but not a lot of lace left behind.
My GOD that aroma is thick in your nostrils. Resinous, Sweet, I can already tell it will be sticky just from smelling it. Tons of ripe and almost over ripe tropical fruit. Some sticky pine in the background.
First thought is about the sweetness that is so chewy and resinous. Lots o’ hops here. TOns of sticky sweet fruit as I thought. Lots of tropical notes at first then off to the pine forest. Some herbal notes late. I’d say the abv is tamped down by the sweetness, but I wouldn’t say it’s hidden. You can just tell this is a big beer.
Yep, this is a sticky resin bomb. Hop oils coat your tongue. Not for the faint of heart.
My God, this is a big beer. Almost bordering on over the top. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great... But it’s a mouth full.
I read the label and see there are Oak Chips used here. I’d never notice or mention this in a million years without having read this on the label. Even after knowing, I can’t tell you I sense their inclusion.
I believe that Duet (then Nelson) remains my favorite Alpine item. But this is a treat for sure.
