Notes: They say a moment of damnation waits for the ones who walk in shadows. But hell, why say a prayer for a path never walked. Its quite righteous to follow the soul's intrepid battle with doom. Triple dry-hopped with our finest crops of Galaxy and Motueka hops.

Pours a cloudy light straw color, looks milky. Abundant foamy white head lasts a long time. Sharp citrus aroma; I get lemon and grapefruit. Great hoppy citrus flavors, has a light dose of bitterness that lasts on the finish. Good carbonation. 7.4% abv is not noticeable. Overall an excellent IPA.

4.14/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy murky pale golden color with orange hints only a small creamy colored head but it does lace well.

Aroma is tropical mango, passion fruit light citrus smoothy like only a light herbal like bitterness in the nose. Definitely a fruit smithy nose.

Taste is like the nose but had more bitterness then you thought it would. The fruitiness is still all there mostly tropical with citrus underneath. Has a nice light herbal bitterness to round it out.

Mouhfeel is big medium smooth creamy carbonation.

Overall pretty solid hazy IPA, about what you would except from Burial.

A: Pours a milky murky medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate bright yellow + pale orange + apricot + peach colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy sudsy foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized patch of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy tropical/mango + tropical/passionfruit + citrus/grapefruit + citrus/lime + herbal hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + pale + wheat + oat malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + pale + wheat + oat malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy tropical/mango + tropical/passionfruit + citrus/grapefruit + citrus/lime + herbal hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving moderate lingering citrus + herbal + tropical hop flavors.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Moderate amounts of creamy soft/fluffiness mid-body with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a very pleasant creamy soft/fluffy mouthfeel. Enjoyable with tons of Galaxy hop flavors and aromas along with a lighter contribution from the Motueka hops. Great citrus + tropical + herbal hop flavors and aromas. Definitely would grab another of these.

4/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Canned 9/8/20; drank 9/17/20 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange/yellow appearance.

A violent pour yielded a nice white head; a thick curtain of lace.

Orange citrus, lemon & dry grass notes in the nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel.

Grapefruit & lemon flavors up front; dry grass & faint booze heat notes on the finish.

An above average NE IPA; not among their best, but certainly worth a quaff.

Can (7/12 Release)

Opaque milky orange with a small head that initially plasters the glass with lacing. Aromas of hoppy dankness, passion fruit, pine. Tastes like Galaxy juice...all kinds of tropical fruit: mango, passion fruit, apricot, and greater grapefruit and lime citrus presence. Extremely hoppy, not overly sweet. Creamy feel, dry and drinkable. Real good...
