4.39/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

So I had this at the Brewvival at the end of February and despite my drunkenness immediately realized this was the greatest beer at the festival (and I had several, from top breweries, which I never considered Brooklyn one of). I remembered it as a tropical fruit like citrus hop bomb!

Ok, ok, I've had this twice since (once on tap, freshness unknown, and now the bottle I drink from as we speak, freshness date is August 2014.

A - Pours a nice clear copper with a finger of off white head with nice retention and nice lacing. Looks fairly light but not watery by any means

S - Smells of citrusy fruits like grapefruit, lemon and orange but also sweet tropical fruits. Hoppy sweet fruit smells. Call me crazy, but i get strawberry like aromas here.

T - Minimally piney for the initial taste/split second then citrusy and sweet (i can only describe as tropical, passion fruit/pinapple/lemon and that damn strawberry again) hop flavor. Strawberry/blackberry seed type flavors at the finish, rather dry and tons of sweet fruit lingers.

M - Medium body, well carbonated, a breeze at 8%+

O - Not the holy grail i experienced at brewvival but still some fantastic sweet fruit/citrus bomb. Lots of lemon, and i still cant get over the strawberry characteristics - I know, i must be the only one.

Serving type: growler

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Decent head, but minimal lace--a couple of spots. Greenish, dark gold color. A bit hazy.

Dry caramel and floral hop are the predominate aromas.

Dryish pale malt start. The biting hop and the warming alcohol come on quickly when swallowing. Long lasting aftertaste with good balance. Smooth, rich body with a dampened level of bubbles. I'd love to try this one in a flight of excellent DIPAs. I think this one would do well.

Serving type: bottle
