Lead-filled SnowshoeLead-filled Snowshoe
Notes: This double dry-hopped West Coast IPA is packed with Simcoe, Mosaic & Citra. Loads of Simcoe in the boil allows this beautiful hop to showcase crazy notes of sticky pine. The dry-hop addition of Mosaic & Citra add a spectacular depth of tangy citrus, dank hemp and ripe tropical fruit to round out this bitterboi.

3.87/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a clear medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate pale golden yellow + honey colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy light beige head that reduces to a large patch of finger thick film covering a little more than 70% of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of herbal + citrus/grapefruit + tropical/mango + gooseberry + citrus/grapefruit pith hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of bready + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of bready + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of herbal + citrus/grapefruit + tropical/mango + gooseberry + citrus/grapefruit pith hops which impart a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively crisp upfront with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Drinks pretty easily with well hidden alcohol and a pleasantly crisp mouthfeel. Enjoyable though the herbal hops are a touch stronger than the other hop flavors...detracting from my overall enjoyment of this beer. I like the West Coast aspects of more aggressive bitterness and lighter sweetness.

3.85/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. TI poured with a half finger high white head that left lots of lacing on the surface and down the sides of the glass after it died down.
S: Moderate aromas of herbal hops are present in the nose along with notes of gooseberries and hints of mangos.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of flavors of herbal hops from start to finish along with underlying notes of gooseberries, mangos and alcohol. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The drinkability of this Imperial IPA is somewhat detracted by all of the flavors of herbal hops and the notes of alcohol in the taste.
