Crucial Crucial Taunt TauntCrucial Crucial Taunt Taunt
Notes: Crucial Crucial Taunt Taunt is the double dry-hopped version of our beloved flagship Double IPA Crucial Taunt. Clocking in at 8%(as usual) this is hands down the most aromatic double IPA we have ever produced. Almost 7.5lbs per BBL of hops, this monster has a never ending flavor profile. This is down right insane!

L - 2-finger dense, yellowish head atop a murky orange body.

S - honey, candied orange, papaya, pineapple.

T - tropical fruits with honey-like sweetness. Somewhat dirty, bitter middle. Moderate bitterness. Moderate-low sweetness. Low booziness.

F - medium body and carb.

O - tasty, but prefer the original’s lack of sweetness.

On tap, pours the usual orange haze. Smell and taste are like a white grapefruit bomb, with some dank and catty notes. This is a truly great hazy IPA, loved it.

Pours the usual NEIPA haze with an average head. Awesome and lively aromas of berries, peach, apricot, papaya, and mango. Flavors are woodsier and more bitter than expected but with a pleasant floral sweetness on the back end. Crisp and prickly carbonation, reminiscent of Trillium's hoppy offerings.

85/100

Pours a hazy golden. Looks no worse than your typical hazy IPA. Smells a little funky. Kind of pez like citrus character on the nose. It's a very one note mandarin orange taste. There isn't anything negative to say about the actual flavor, just that it is incredibly boring. There is literally no complexity and I would argue that it is insanely boring.

Cloudy dark orange with two fingers of antique white head. Heavy webbed lacing.

White pepper, orange, cream, mango, pineapple and papaya in the nose.

The same tropical and citrus flavors coupled with some cream and vanilla, and then grassy bitterness in the finish.

Creamy, slick feel with great, lightly fizzy carbonation.

Very tasty. Great use of Citra in this with an amazing creamy feel.

Orange pour, smaller head. Big Pine resin and citrus aroma, dank, onion, spices. Mango and citrus up front, giving way to a massive dose of pine resin, orange peel, grapefruit pith, lighter cracker malt. Fuller body, lightly spicy but immensley dank aftertaste.
