Bottled July 2015, drunk early August í15 and again mid-January í16.
Great appearance, with a moderate haze to the lime-tinted bronze body. Large white head shows strong retention.
It was interesting to try the beer under a month old and then six months old. It may seem ridiculous to even bother noting its character at six months of age, but Iíd actually say that with the massive, massive amount of hops, acid/bitterness and yeast character in this thing, it didnít hurt to keep it (very cold fridged) for a while. Young the stuff is just a plethora of every possible hop characteristics; pineapple, wintergreen, dank marajuana, earthiness, pine, citrus. There is some definite yeast stink to it but the alcohol is fairly well-concealed (though a touch of heat, for sure). In the flavor, itís quite bitter, though perhaps not anything absurd for a DIPA. Lots of grapefruit, some grassiness, pineapple and tangerine. The carapils and C40 do add some toasted character, but itís not too much of an interference. Texture shows soft, well-attenuated maltiness and tight carbonation.
In the end, Iíd opine itís probably a bit better to give this thing a month or so to have the yeastiness and strong bitterness some time to fade. Certainly a well-made beer, though aggressive, as MBC hoppy beers are.

Thank you Mathieu87 & PriorL! 500 ml. bottle sampled @ ďMathieuís house cooling partyĒ. Bottled on 24.10.2015. Very hazy orange peach, little bubbles. Nose is very yeasty, big yeast & murky peach, apricot hop soup with doughy & dash sugary sweetness. Taste is sweetish dough, sugar, sweetish passion fruit sorbet, yeast & hop soup, sugar, herbs, quite yeasty. Sweetish yeasty & dough body. Comparable to the work of Trillium & Tree House, this is how the newest & hippest USA breweries make IPAís these days. People adore it but I donít entirely get these hop & yeast soup concoctions yet. This is one is not bad but too sweetish & yeasty for me.

First let me say this is a beer Iíve been trying to get for a while and so I am biased. Pretty good birthday beer. Pours hazy golden orange, like the inside of nectarine. Big gorgeous fluffy white head, lacing clings to the glass. Aroma is dank hops, orange, pineapple, mango, very minimal pepper note, peach, but lots of dankness and tropical fruit. Flavor is hop-forward, wow. Big hop bite, tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, pine. Light/medium effervescence, slightly oily. Gorgeous. Nice resiny bitter hop finish. This beer is exceptional.

Knowing this was in fridge I couldnít resist cracking right away. Yellownorange fine two finger head. Beautiful nose tropical fruits and a bit doughy. Tastes of melon, mango, pineapple, resin, dough, grassy and light hop bitterness. Creamy carbonation and lingering finish of bitter hops and fruit. Huge thanks to my cousin Jeff for bringing back from the homeland for me.

Bottle. Pours hazy bright orange with some white head. Nose is pineapple, orange, pine, tangerine. Taste is just as rich with some nice bitterness and malt sweetness. Great aftertaste. Great beer!

Smells like a tropical fruit smoothie and pours a perfectly clear golden-orange. Taste is dry, balanced, very hoppy. Lots and lots of strong fruit taste, but in a complex way, and it finishes surprisingly clean and neat. A near-perfect beer, and quite possibly the best thing Iíve ever had.

Bottle. Pours murky yellow with a thin white head that lingers. Smells exactly like grapefruit. Mild carbonation. Complex hop flavors superior to most. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
