Notes / Commercial Description:
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. But are you crazy enough? Show those guys that are inching their way on the freeways in their metal coffins that the human sprit is still alive. Mosaic. Citra. Centennial. Columbus. Lots of barley. Touch of wheat. The sea swallows the Sun. And who knows if it rises again. Vaya con dios.

12 oz can, 01/26/17 on the bottom.

Pours heavily hazed, nice looking fine bits and mini fields of lace.

Tropical fruit nose, with soft notes of ripe pineaple and melon. Also picking up a minor oniony note.

Highly tasty NE style juiced up IPA, more of the same on the palate, ripe fruit, soft and yummy dank hop goodness. No onions thankfully detected on the palate. Well crafted and highly enjoyable....glad to have these Burial brews as new additions to local distro, here in NY state

A hazy, pale gold beer with a white head that leaves moderate lacing. The nose is filled with pine, grass, orange,grapefruit and some onion. The taste is slightly sweet with grapefruit pith, pine and orange. The beer has medium to light body and tongue tickling carbonation. Really nice version of a hazy IPA with a good balance of sweetness and bitterness.

Can poured into glass; nice carbonation leading to one finger head. Hazy, golden unfiltered appearance. Citra hops and fruits are apparent to nose. Medium body with easy bitter taste on palate. Very enjoyable-

Poured from a 12oz can into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head.

Aroma is bitter grapefruit orange and lemon peel. Delicious.

Taste does it's best to match aroma, but with a slight candy lemon undertone.

Excellent beer, both good to analyze and just drink.
