Enjoyed a single bottle poured into an English pub glass. I quite enjoyed this brew's bigger brother Twice As Mad Tom (see that review) and this one has many of the same charms. These guys have a pretty unique take on IPAs. A light golden yellow color with several inches of billowing white foam, this beer's aroma hits you with a ton of rich malt that almost evokes plums as opposed to the more typical caramel or toffee, mango and papaya spear tropical notes, sweet ripe smoky pineapple, and orange/tangerine rind along with some pine sap. Smells tropical yet rustic at the same time. Tastes like a classic Centennial hop bomb, with some orange juice, overripe peach, pineapple, white pepper, and vitamin tablet with aggressive pine that builds and builds as you go. Perhaps less sweet than Twice As Mad Tom but still massively tropical and piney, with the citrus and floral elements downplayed compared to many other IPAs. The malts make me think sweet graham cracker and a little campfire marshmellow (cool, a smore!) and like Twice As, this brew manages to couple pungent hopping and darkish malts particularly well. Semi-chewy body, a little prickly on the tongue, with a moderate degree of carbonation. Finishes long and wet, with lingering citrus, spice, and medicinal pine flavors as a calling card. Recommended to those who like their IPAs tropical, resinous, and a tad smoky.
