Pours a cloudy, golden amber coloration with a small, fluffy head. Smells of biscuity, slightly caramelly malt and tropical/stone fruit hops, with notes of papaya and peach. Taste is a poor balance of biscuity, slightly caramelly malt and fruity, floral, musty hops, with tropical and stone fruit notes of papaya and peach, as well as a certain, rather unpleasant musty, rotten undertone and solvent-like booziness. Finishes quite boozy and bittersweet, with some musty, rotten hops lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

I was rather looking forward to this, as FrauGruber usually do Triple IPAs particularly well, but unfortunately there is something seriously off with this one, which might be a batch issue, as I've noticed dramatically different colorations for this on untappd. I actually suspect that this may be very slightly oxidized, not quite enough to become truly disgusting and papery, but enough to feel musty and stale, with a certain vinyl, solvent undertone as well, which kinda amplifies the booziness of this. While some fruity notes of papaya and peach remain detectable, they just feel stale instead of bright and juicy. Drainpour.
