T- Dank hops, grapefruit peal

Reviewing Sapping Mammoth, an IPA collaboration between Maine Beer Company, out of Freeport, Maine, and Half Acre Brewing Company, out of Chicago, Illinois.

Score: 96

November 2014 bottling served in a Half Acre tulip and enjoyed on 11/23/14. Although this was available locally, I snoozed on picking one up, so a shout out is in order to my good buddy Derek for sending me a bottle all the way from Maine!

Appearance: Pours a largely opaque, but clean-in-appearance marigold color with two-plus fingers of soapy head that settle to a thick layer atop the glass. Unreal lacing and retention/cling that sticks to the sides of the glass in what appears to be perpetuity. Lovely, fresh looking IPA. 5/5

Smell: The nose is bouquet of juicy citrus and tropical fruits mixed with dank pine - pineapple, mango, grapefruit, orange, and tangerine! A hint of black pepper too. A little resinous malt lurks in the background. This is my kind of aroma; reminds me of something particularly Vermont-y... 4.75/5

Taste: A bitter and juicy pineapple grapefruit explosion hit the tongue and linger past the finish! Mango, a little spice and a nice resinous malty splash on the finish. The grapefruit flavor lingers nicely past the swallow. This sort of tastes like a citra hopped Stigel Radler IPA. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, nicely carbonated. Nice, light malty sweetness to balance out a mild bitterness. Very juicy on the palate. Although I wish it had a little more viscosity, the lighter body of this beer makes it dangerously crushable. 4.25/5

Overall: Better than Dinner, almost as good as this year's batch of Beer Hates Astronauts. If you can find this while it is still fresh, I highly recommend picking up a bottle.

Cost: $7.99 for a 500 ml bottle.
