Retired (no longer brewed)
Notes: These are fragments from the sheen of a once untarnished verity. They are the jagged particles of visuals once perceived to be. And we now know them simply as a refuge for forgotten dreams. Triple Dry-Hopped with hand-select Citra, Azacca, Centennial, and Galaxy, and finished with Centennial Cryo.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Completely opaque pale orange-yellow, big dense white head on top.

Aroma: I'm not getting too much here. Some hop citrus flavors appear.

Flavor: Very good. Dried pineapple, lemon zest, bitter orange, guava.

Palate/Finish: Nice smooth consistency, not light-bodied but not thick. Velvety. Finishes with dry orange pith and grapefruit.

Overall: This is a great beer. Very picturesque of the NE style, in flavor and appearance.

A: Pours a milky murky medium bright yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate pale orange + pale golden yellow + straw yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized patch of thick film covering a little more than 50% of the surface of the beer surrounded by a large patch of slightly mottled very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy citrus/grapefruit + tropical/mango + citrus/lime zest + citrus/lemon zest + tropical/pineapple + floral hops over the top of moderate aromas of biscuit + pale + oat + wheat malts with a light amount of sugary sweetness.

T: Upfront there are just shy of moderate flavors of biscuit + pale + oat + wheat malts with a light amount of sugary sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy citrus/grapefruit + tropical/mango + citrus/lime zest + citrus/lemon zest + tropical/pineapple + floral + citrus/grapefruit pith hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away fairly quickly leaving light to moderate citrus hop flavors lingering.

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

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasantly creamy + soft/fluffy mouthfeel. Enjoyable with big citrus + tropical hop flavors and aromas. Good but not as great as some of the others that Burial has produced.

3.92/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Canned 8/18/20; drank 8/29/20 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange/yellow appearance.

A violent pour yielded a big, noisy off-white head; a thick curtain of tree-rung lace.

Lemon, table sugar, wheat & cream notes in the nose.

Creamy medium thick mouthfeel.

Lemon & table sugar flavors up front; wheat & cream notes on the finish.

Not Burial's finest hour, but this is drinkable & above average. Not one I'll track down again, though.

3.94/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a heavily hazed, lightly murky-looking appearance, milky orange-yellow with a short-lived, white head.

Smell: Citrus fruits, peppered mango, pineapple and flower petals stirred up with a rustic, raw grain goulash.

Taste: A little sweetness, with a breadiness infused with creamy, gluey wheat and oats. Lemon-lime juices, tropical fruits with some mulish herbal accents cut the paste and get things back on track. Medium-plus bitterness adjoined to some warming alcoholic hints. A little chalky, fruit jellies cut by some drying alcohol and bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not bad.
