Look - fantastic thick hazy orangish yellow with great foamy skimming
Smell - so tropical! Grapefruit mango pineapple
Taste - still great citrus grapefruit pineapple taste with lots of resin but very juicy, very slight mango
Feel - medium full body with a lighter carb
Overall - just a tropical fantastic beer

Canned 1/19/21; drank 2/20/21 @ Hannah & Kensers.

Opaque orange/yellow appearance.

Orange citrus, grapefruit, mild cane sugar & faint ganja notes in the nose.

Medium thick, sticky mouthfeel.

Orange citrus & tangy grapefruit flavors up front; table sugar & dry ganja notes on the finish.

Above average, but Burial is capable of more.

Perceptions are just that. When working with the loaded taste of Citra and Simcoe hops, Burial Beer's Imperial hazy IPA can be seen one of two ways: 1) They're killing it with maximum juiciness and fruitiness in a taste that's rarely seen in the beer world, or 2) Leaving a malty balance to rival the hops are a death sentence to this brand of beer.

Regardless, Perceptions of Carnage pours a pale but firmly hazy goldenrod with an inviting creamy white froth. With a slew of intense aromatics drifting about the nose, teasing with citrus and herbal radiance. Malty to taste, its the common starch of pastry, dough, poundcake and honeysuckle that defines the beer's creamy sweetness.

While the cereal sweetness stews on the middle palate, the grain character is quickly overtaken by the hops that shed their juicy and branch-ripe character of tangerine, mango, passionfruit and pineapple; but then developing into a sharper and more herbal flavors laced with white grapefruit, lime leaf, tea and lemon pepper. A late developing bitterness trends resinous and spicy with strong suggestions of cannabis to frame the beer's final taste.

Medium bodied and creamy from start to finish, the stronger hazy IPA finishes with botanical gin-like qualities and with the sprucy bite to match, trailing into a medium long, bittersweet aftertaste that simply won't allow the hops to shine to their fullest potential. Not exactly carnage, there's definitely some damage done.
