this is totally over the top, but its awesome. a highly fragrant and oily resinous monster of an ipa, one of the better hoppy beers i have had from these guys really. denser than many but not new school hazy in appearance, with an orange honey color to it and not much head from the can after it has a moment to settle. the nose is straight tropical fruit, pineapple and tangerine and mango, even a little sweet in its oiliness before it goes a bit vegetal and bitter, but super fresh and attractive. some light grain sweetness here, its not too much and it provides nice balance and a little body, for how bold the hops are here, they arent out of proportion for what this is. huge guava and pine resin here, almost sticky as i drink it, and a definite honey note, floral and fresh, springy and for how robust it is, its not that heavy. fresh and complete spectrum on the hops, nicely bitter at the end, and just a really great recipe, on the edge of absurdly hopped, but they have built a good enough beer around all the hops that they work. 4 hands has been on a serious roll lately, and this one is next level!

With the most coveted hops on the planet at their disposal, there's really no other way to showcase them any more properly than in a big and juicy IPA.

Ca$h Money pours with a burnish orange tint against a surprisingly clean backdrop. As a creamy, cottony froth builds, so do the radiant citrusy fragrance. With hints of tropical, orchard and exotic fruit character, its first sip greets the tongue with a lush candied sweetness, redolent with honey, caramel and fruit punch.

And as the sweetness relaxes on the palate, the mouth becomes awash with fruit. Pink grapefruit, tangerine, nectarine and honeydew precede more esoteric tropical blends of pineapple, mango, kiwi and passionfruit. A tinge of lemon and a nod to lemongrass herb and the flavors pull together seamlessly.

Medium-bodied and semi-dry, the beer retains just enough malt sweetness to keep the fruit impressions seemingly branch-ripe, plump and teeth-churningly tangy. Dangerously refreshing and highly drinkable, the ale closes with billowing bitterness on the back palate with waves of citrus peel, fresh herbal grassiness, and resinous pine in after tow.

Draft tulip at Links Taproom.

Hazed saturated orange, looked nearly opaque but the lighting was dark so it was hard to tell. Compact head of off white foam that left behind a thin lacy collar on the opposite side of the glass.

Pungent aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Mango, orange, grapefruit, papaya, a nice cocktail blend.

Taste is intensely resinous and moderately bitter, though also intensely fruity and fairly easy to drink. Juicy orange, grapefruit, and mango, undercurrent of pale malt sweetness, dries up quickly in the finish though. Medium bodied and smooth. Really nice stuff, glad to have tried this.

Poured out a clear, copper color with a small, tan head of bubbly foam. It smelled of citrus, grapefruit, mango and pineapple It tasted of sweet caramel, citrus, grapefruit and bread crust. Spicy bitterness adds balance. It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale.

Welcome back to New 4th Hands of July Beer Sunday (Week 697)! I have been awaiting this entry for a couple of weeks. I have finally gotten to the point of looking at my backlog that serious action is being done. I have been running through a LOT of beer by dint of reviews/ratings/check-ins, but there is nothing quite as satisfying as a brewery horizontal (same brewery, lots of different beers).

From the CAN: "Pairings[:] Sharp Cheddar[,] Charcuterie".

Man, I totes dig these food pairings! I was poised to attend the Culinary Institute of America (C.I.A.) outta high school, but between circumstances, finances & blown chances, I enlisted inna Navy, instead. No regrets & my recruiter did me a solid by steering me away from being a cook since, as he put it, some of those stew burners are so brain dead, they actually have to occasionally be reminded to breathe! It was true & I would have probably ended up swallowing a bullet. As it was, I eventually landed in Supply as a Storekeeper (SK), doing repair parts supply as opposed to retail sales (although I did some of that, also). Some of my fave moments were as a Mess Crank & being able to stand in when the cooks (MSs) were short-handed. My gig is & has been baking, but of late, I have been relegated to slow cooker duty.

Onward! It is still hot as the jungle around here & I need a beer. It beCAN with a Crack! of the vent, followed by a slow, gentle Glug since I do not feel like dealing with a potential mess. Once deCANted, an in-glass swirl lifted both my spirits & just under two fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, tawny head with decent retention that left nice lacing as it waved bye-bye. Did I mention the heat & humidity? F**k! Color was on the cusp of Gold or Amber, so I asked The Gelt Gang of Mammon, Midas & Croesus for their opinion, but they were so spent from today's P/K World Cup FT games that they fanned me on. OK. That laves it at solid Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was a pungent mélange of CANteloupe, honeydew, peach, pine, the tropical suspects of mango, passion fruit, papaya and guava plus a honey-like maltiness and some fiery alcohol that went up my nose & lit my sinuses up. 8=O I need this! Phew! Mouthfeel was medium, but I expect more in & from a DIPA. The taste was like a liquored-up fruit cup! Ha! I am doing a gig as a day-to-day substitute teacher & sometimes, I will get leftover fruit cups in goody bags or as leftovers. This was like a vodka-infused fruit cup! Just a fruity medley with a big alcohol burn! Yeah, I've been drinking all day, but this was a revelation! Damn, but this was good. How CAN I parse out all of the sweet, fruity flavors for you? Let's start with the ones from the Nose & add white grapes, pear, peach, apricot & maybe a maraschino cherry. ;=) Forgive me on the last one. Do you like fruit salad? Do you like alkeehaul? If you said "YES!" to both, then you will did this little number the most. Finish was hot & dry, but still fruity. Phew! Getcha some & meet me inna alley, cat! It'll make you purr like a kitten. Meow!

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. No obvious bottle dating.

Crystal clear appearance, with a very fascinating dark chestnut brown and orange body color. Plentiful carbonation with pin head fine sized bubbles, a little fast rising as well. Head is a creamy off white and just vanilla white color, with thin tiny bubbles and also three to four fingers tall. Very big and budging with island puck and thick clumping in it's makeup. Giant thick clingy chunks of lace as well. Real unique color, excellent head presence, just full of win here.

Aroma matches a nice mix of hop but more malt caramel qualities of sweetness. Hop angle burried, indistinct with maybe a slight bit of wood and mild earth tones. Slightly juiced but also could be syrupy as well. Comes off as firstly as a malty dipa so far.

Sugary palate and mild hop angles show the expected aromas off. Sweet caramel and mild floral and earth qualities. Soft bodied with an almost taffy like texture, but also syrupy feeling as well which provides a strange balance. Mild soft bodied malt sweetness which comes off as a thicker amber ale pleasantry, maple syrup, mild molasses as well.

Hop angle on this is not getting it done in the imperial realm, and actually comes off as more of as moderate sweet imperialized malt amber. Decent beer, but not going to be hanging out with the best of the Imperial IPAs realm unfortunately.
