Thanks, Bill!

Was lucky enough to get a bunch of beer from Bill (and Kristine) when I saw them on a recent work trip. Wasn’t expecting that and I hadn’t brought anything myself. So stupid. Should’ve brought some Mcilhenney crowlers for their pregame. Anyway, I didn’t know going in if this beer was a New England IPA or a West Coast IPA. Burial’s website description was “There is no peace, where the aimless fail to roam. And the minds of living souls demand the guiding light. Made with Epiphany Craft Malt Barley, Oats and Triticale. Double dry-hopped with Mosaic, Vic Secret, Cashmere, and Strata.” A little later than my 60-day rule to review (and really preferred 30-day rule), but pretty close.

Poured a semi-hazy medium yellow color with 3-to-4 fingers of rocky white head. Could seem some bubble streams coming up along the sides of the glass. Almost perfect spiderweb foamy lacing. Almost perfect foamy retention. (Sight - 4.75)

The Vic Secret and Cashmere stood out in the nose. Also melon, green vegetable, tea, herbal, lime, lemon, pine, hints of Mosaic, floral, grass and black pepper. Smelled a little better out of the can. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste was about as good as the nose. In order got Vic Secret, Cashmere, melon, green vegetable, mint, herbal, tea, lemon zest, lime, black pepper, dank pine, grass, floral and hints of Mosaic and Strata. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. (Feel - 4.00)

A solid IPA overall. Very good. (Overall - 3.75)

Picked up a single from The Blue Door Bottle Shop 10-20-21 for $5.50. Canned 21SEP2021; consumed 12-26-21.

Beer poured light orange with a very nice white head with the original pour.

Nose is nice, of tropical and citrus hops that are not super pungent.

Taste is a nice light malt base that fuses nicely with peach, orange and mango yeast strain and hops. Finishes with a touch of rind bitterness; 6/10 on my scale.

Mouthfeel is very light and refreshing.

Overall another really nice NEIPA from Burial!

16 oz can, dated 21Sept21, into THAT! NE IPA snifter.

Juicy medium yellow with a finger of stiff white head leaving slight lacing as it recedes slowly.

Aroma of grapefruit juice with emphasis on grapefruit peels, and a little bit of orange juice. Some pleasant herbal grass and sweet spruce are in the mix, too.

Flavor is actually somewhat absent. It's easy drinking but it lacks flavor. It starts with baking soda water, followed by mango and red grapefruit, then some lychee, a little bit of banana, more water, and then it fades off on sweet orange peel and light orange juice. Herbal bitterness tickles the tip of the tongue after the swallow.

Feel is soft and smooth, but has loads of alcohol heat. Carbonation is appropriate though busy, and it leaves a slightly starchy resiny juicy feel clinging to the cheeks. 7.5% is felt in its entirety.

Overall, five years ago this would have been one for the books. Nowadays though there are better juicers, and while I'm probably being a picky beer enthusiast, this one just doesn't stand out enough for me. It's like If you mixed a can of Drekker and Trillium together, which are flavorless and flavorful respectively. I've got other Burial beers to review, but this was the only IPA. It's a fair start. I will finish this can no problem, there are no flaws or oddities, I just wish it was amplified x3.

$4.99 a can, wouldn't buy again at that price.
