Notes / Commercial Description:
Master Master Shredder Shredder is the double dry-hopped version of our beloved flagship IPA Master Shredder. This one came out insane! Probably our favorite Master Shredder variant yet. We know y'all are going to dig this one. Incredible aroma. Dank, fresh orange peel, grapefruit, slight onion(in a good way).

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: pours a nice orange with deep straw hues. a finger or two of a white head with good retention. leaves behind a big frothy lacing. completely hazy and opaque.

Smell: strong citrus, strong resin hop character. more citrus with grapefruit this time. some tropical fruit comes in. some weak maltiness comes through.

Taste: opens with some strong hoppiness. lots of grapefruit, orange juice, more tropical fruit. some citrus zest. really low key malt character. bready and slightly musty wheat.

Mouthfeel: a little bit of softness. good moderate bitterness. low carb as per Veil beers but it is nice with the beer.

Overall: a great slight variation on an already great beer. I wish they would stick to dry hopped variations rather than fruited versions. I love the pure hop bite that the double dry hopping adds to the beer. all the great flavors with a little bit of an extra pure hop resin character.

This beer pours a very hazy golden orange with a 2 finger, foamy white head that reduces to a half finger cap that sticks around for the entire beer. There are some chunks of webbed lacing as well.

Smell is the definition of a juice bomb. Orange, grapefruit, mango, pineapple and dank citrus pith all explode out of the glass.

Taste is the same. I've drank some of the softest and juiciest beers around, and all of them have a little bite on the finish, but this one doesn't. It is literally like drinking a glass of carbonated juice start to finish with not even a trace of percievable bitterness.

Feel is sooo soft and juicy with moderate carbonation.

Overall this beer is excellent. Definition of a juice bomb. I prefer a little bitterness on the back end of my IPAs, so I guess that is my only knock, but still incredible. A lot of breweries are trying to copy the TH style, but honestly in a blind taste test this would fit right in.

EDIT: This can is 3 weeks old on the nose. After reading some of the other reviews I don't pick up on bitterness or green earthy onion at all. I know Grimm recommends drinking their beers at 3 weeks for maximum juiciness, maybe The Veil is the same. Because this beer is the absolute definition of a juice box to me.

16oz can poured into a tulip glass, canned about 10 days ago

A- pours a murky golden orange color with a one-finger foamy white head that reduces to leave some lacing behind

S- smells of orange peel, citrus pith, onion, grass, garlic & mango

T- clean and citrusy up front with notes of orange peel & grapefruit. Mid-palate brings notes of onion, grass and resin, clean finish with more citrus on the linger

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp dry finish

O- clean and citrus forward, easy drinking
