Best Quote During Tasting
It rhymes with "pajama."
Uh. I'm pretty sure it doesn't.
|Big, dank and juicy hops come out screaming with some sweet malts behind them. The hops are bright citrus with pineapple and some orange zest winning the title for most dominant. There's also some subtle peach behind those two as well. The malts are definitely sweet with some wheat bread and even pie crust notes.|
|The beer is a light gold with a thin, eggshell colored cap of foam that floats on top. The head recedes over time to a slick film with the edges sticking to the glass.|
|That's some big ol' juicy, alcohol dankness. The ABV is pretty big but at 10% it's expected to be there. The hops are bold and hit on every major hop category (citrus, resin, pine) with pine being the weakest of the three. The bitterness is quite big, too and while the malts try to keep them in balance, they lose pretty handily. The malts are definitely wheat bread and there is some toastiness to them as well.|
|The body is medium+ and the carbonation matches it nicely. It's sticky in your mouth and coats your tongue. The carbonation is not quite enough to rid your mouth of the bitterness before you take your next sip.|
|There's a bunch of stuff in this one that makes it crazy drinkable and crazy complex. The hops are huge, the bitterness is huge and the malt sweetness is huge. It's not something that I'd pound a few of but it is something that I would gladly drink all 16 ounces when offered. Solid beer by a solid brewery. Hopefully they'll make their way to STL soon enough.|
