Bottle from a trade with GilGarp. Thanks!! I've been fortunate enough to have this awesome beer several times, the freshest being a 7 day old bottle I had in Seattle. This beer is best when experienced in the first 3 weeks and goes SIGNIFICANTLY downhill at week 5+. Keep that in mind if you're trading for it!!
Appearance: This beer pours deep golden color with a touch of orange. Poured into my Stone Levitation tulip, a two finger head dissipates into nice lacing and a ring that sticks around.
Smell: Smells like a hop field at harvest time in the hot sun. Floral and tropical with nice citrus too. An incredible nose - only Hopslam does it better IMO.
Taste: Amazing hoppy bliss. Tickles my tongue and refreshes without compromising anything on taste. WOW. This is just world class in every way! A crisp light malt bill provides just enough sweetness to compliment the pineapple hop flavor. This is to die for!!
Mouthfeel: Silky and sexy, just enough bubbles to make it dance in your mouth. Slick and resinous without over-doing it on the oily feel.
Drinkability: Could crush this all day. One begs to be followed with another. - difficult to do when you're in OHIO, but this is easily the most drinkable top 50 beer out there IMO. It's sooo good - must trade for more soon!!
