Ominously named but bright in nature, Burial Brewing simply kills it with a collection of hop that span Citra, Galaxy, Idoho 7, Sabro, Incognito and Citra Cryo varieties that are piled high on a New England-styled Imperial IPA.

With a visually dense, hazy and matte finished gold, the pastel opagueness soon floats a creamy ivory froth. Off of that rolls a generous perfume of candied fruit, citronella and general dankness. A creamy sweetness of cereal, agave and honeysuckle frames its early taste.

But that complex hop bill steals the show as the ale rolls along the middle palate. Bold citrus flavors of orange, grapefruit and lime mingle with more tropical fruits of pineapple, passionfruit, mango and papaya - each seemingly dried and condensed in their sweetness. Trending juicy with peach and cantaloupe, the hop flavors seem to hold no end. With a slight turn to bitterness, the late taste is botanical with verbena, tea, spruce, cedar, lemon grass and hemp.

Medium full in body, Apparitional Disintegration has a high flavor reward with the juiciness of hops, but its lack of dryness and balance has it cumbersome on the finish. A long and pastry-rich sweetness extends with fruit peels, herb and heft.

Can from Brewery Sept 2020

Uber overripe fruit (mango mainly?) coupled with heavy burnt synthetic material (-previous reviewer calls it peanut butter ... to each his own!). It’s an extremely rich IPA, not a term commonly used to describe a haze bomb. It’s sweet but actually more rich than sweet. I can’t decide if I like it or not. I suspect this will be a pretty polarizing beer.

Canned 8/31/20; drank 9/12/20 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque yellow/orange appearance.

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

Peanut butter, pine & mild orange citrus notes in the nose.

Creamy, medium thick mouthfeel.

STRONG peanut butter flavors up front; mild citrus notes & faint booze heat on the finish.

I'm a Burial fan-boy, for sure, but this one missed the mark completely for me. A peanut butter bomb that doesn't really resemble much of what I'm looking for on an IPA.

A: Completely opaque yellow-orange with a finger of DENSE white head.

S: Mango, citrus spice.

T: Citrus pith, orange rind, pineapple, various other ripe fruits. So bright and delicious. Alcohol is well-hidden.

M/F: Creamy, velvety, very smooth. Finishes with bitter orange rind.

O: My first Burial beer! This is so well-made! The only thing I can compare it to is one of Great Notion's IPAs. Super juicy and balanced, and creamy. World-class IPA!
