16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 10/24/2018. Over carbonated can, but probably the intent? Pours fairly hazy/cloudy pale golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with amazing retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts the whole glass. Thick creamy soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Amazing appearance. Aromas of lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, watermelon, apricot, red apple, gooseberry, white grape/wine, citrus peel/zest, wood, mint, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/fairly earthy hops and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, watermelon, apricot, red apple, gooseberry, white grape/wine, citrus peel/zest, wood, mint, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, watermelon, apricot, red apple, gooseberry, white grape/wine, citrus peel/zest, wood, mint, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/fairly earthy hops and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Very crisp/clean finishing. Moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. High carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Light lingering resins/rinds through the glass. Minimal warming alcohol for 5.9%. Overall this is an excellent brut IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/fairly earthy hops and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and pretty refreshing to drink with the moderately drying bitter/carbonated finish. Not aggressive at all. Feels like mostly El Dorado/Nelson. Very vibrant and fairly juicy/dank/earthy hop complexity; with a nice clean pale/wheat malt backbone. Zero residual sweetness with the crisp carbonated finish. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. They definitely nailed the Champagne aspect of this one.
