On tap at Parker Pie. Served in a short pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange. Big white head. Laces very nicely.

Smell - Light citrus. More grassy hops, but the malt is more dominant. Bright fruity sweetness, presumably from the honey. Kinda smells wheaty.

Taste - It's got a grapefruit and pine hop flavor, but the malt is again the centerpiece. Sweet and doughy. Bright fruity honey flavors, too. Finishes with a strong sharp grain flavor, which I guess is corn.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Well carbonated. Kinda sweet, but not offensively.

Overall - It's pretty good, but not the usual hop dominant profile I'd like.

Pours gold with a small head.
Nose shows lychee, hot alcohol, corn-like industrial notes, pine and peach.
Harsh flavours too with more solventy alcohol and the corn notes. Some light sweet clean malt and a fair whack of pine and grapefruit.
Body feels a bit watery. Very warming.

Half pint. A: Pale golden, very hazy, large head, moderate retention, lots of lacing. S: Lots of mango, some molasses, quite medicinal. T: Very sweet for an IPA, fruity, molasses, substantial burn. M: Fairly crisp for abv, smooth, moderate carbonation. O: Decent, drinkable beer, a sipper but I get the feeling they tried too hard.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Best before 31/12/2014

A - A very hazy golden staw yellow with a 3 finger fluffy white head. Looks very appealing.

S - Citrus, lemongrass, honey, very little sweetness. A soft scent of hops.

T- Hops, slight hints of lemon and honey. A long hoppy finish.

M - Creamy, light and smooth. Not too much carbonation.

Overall, I thought this was a very good beer. This is the second one of these that I've enjoyed both. I would prefer a little bit of a heavier mouthfeel, as this is very light, but the carbonation is spot on. I really enjoy IPA's this time of year, and at 8.1% this imperial version hides the alcohol well, which makes it very easy to drink. Not overly complex, but very drinkable. Would definitely have again.

A-Pours a copper color. Thinner, off white head. Not much lacing.

S-Balanced between sweet and hoppy. The hops are candied citrus, softer tropical fruits and maybe some grass. Caramel and fruity malt.

T-The hops take over more here. The yeast is estery. Also some caramel and even a spicy yeast flavor. The hops are of sweet, candied oranges, melon and peach. Also fairly grassy.

M-Medium bodied. Booze pops up slightly and heats the cheeks. Medium carbonation. Bitterness isn't excessive.

O-A tasty, unique triple collaboration. First sip was more impressive than any. The entire pint started to lose its luster with me just slightly. Still an above average brew.

A collab with cigar city and grassroots and theses guys I've never heard til the other day so interested that's for sure and pours a dirty golden honey hue with a rocky capped three finger head and clingy lacing everywhere,the smell is a nice mix of tropical fruit salad and a spicey maltiness quite nice,the mouthfeel is medium bodied and moderately carbonated,the taste is quite crisp and zesty with big tropical fruit salad notes,zesty lemon and finished with a mix of spicey malts and paw paw and overall nothing out of this world but tasty,sessionable and well worth a taste just beware of the ABV as it's so well hidden cheers.
