On tap @ my house! I was lucky enough to score a 1/6bbl for the kegerator thanks to Corey @ Rozi's. On tap and kicking ass!!
Off the tap into my Founders snifter. Pours a brilliant copper orange color with great head an lacing. A bit darker than some DIPA's but wonderful and technically perfect.
Smells of mangoes, pineapple, and orange courtesy of the citrus hops. Great caramel candy malt backs it up. Well balanced in it's extremity.
Taste is awesome. This is a better batch than the one that hit bottles last year. The malt is less sickly sweet. Instead, it has a wonderful mango, peach, and pine hoppy bitterness backed with caramel and slightly toasty malt. Superb job this time, boys, I like the new recipe. It's been tweaked just perfectly.
Mouthfeel is sticky and slick. Nice carb but the body is just a touch too heavy for my liking.
Drinkability is good. I can put a few down, but I need help with this keg. Anyone want to come over this weekend and lend a hand? All you can drink ;)
