A big thanks to Jonathan who has come through with some ridiculous generosity as of late! He's a saxy dude!
Poured from a bottle into a snifter. The beer is light gold in color with good clarity. A white crown of foam adorned the pour very well and receded to a slight ring that remained atop the beer throughout. Lacing grabbed the glass as the liquid level fell from persistent quaffing.
The smell of this beer is something to behold! Honestly, if you are reading this, put "Smell an Exponential Hoppiness" on your 'bucket list'. You won't be disappointed. Dank as all get out!! I love that! If I could give it a 5.5 out of 5, I would.
The taste compliments the smell quite nicely with crazy hop flavor. Sweet tangerine, grapefruit rind, weed, some pine....it's all here. A noticeable smooth sweet malt base supports the hops nicely and dangerously hides the 11% ABV.
The mouthfeel is quite smooth and medium bodied. It is damned surprising that I get virtually NO alcohol heat from this beer. None!
That hidden alcohol contributes to this dangerously easy drinker.
I suppose it had to happen to me at some point. A straight 5-oh, I mean. This beer is quite incredible and needs to be had by anyone who considers themselves a hop head.
