Hey guys, a few of us have debated in the past weeks re: Immodest being THAT good, some think it's great, some not so much. Apparently, a few think that it could be a "Heady killer" (not sure why, there's room for plenty great beers ) so I put the two through it last night to see for myself where they stand in relation to each other. Bad news right from the start as Immodest was almost 4 weeks old and Heady was a few days fresh. Yikes... However, the bad news for Immodest stopped there. There were two of us who scored it higher in smell, taste and feel. What Heady reaaaaally had going for it though was its drinkability. I understand why they drink cans of this stuff like Coors Light in Vermont, no detectable alcohol, super easy to drink. However, the strong, malty presence in Immodest provided a stronger and more tropical smell, more balanced taste and better mouthfeel. Bothe we're very different and just having those two, if this was a blind test, I could've easily been convinced that they were a notch apart, i.e. one was a regular IPA, the other a double, or even one a double and the other a triple (would have to have more iterations to properly compare). So is that a bit of a knock on Immodest, feeling "boozier"? It is, however it just balances the whole thing out quite perfectly. Now, of course, your mileage may, and likely will, vary. I think that in our constant search of hops, Heady provides one of if not the best profile out there, but there was no malt to speak of (at least when comparing these two) so it's hard for me to say it was as well balanced as Immodest. So there you go, lack of malt for one, a bit boozy for the other, so both are bound to be overtaken. On a hot day chilling outside, I'd reach for the Heady. A cooler spring evening, I'll go for the Immodest. Twist my arm while asking me which one I prefer though... Cheers!
