> A crazy cilantro and fresh bell pepper IPA that tastes better than it sounds

[ Bottle ][ RBWG Afterparty Day 1 ][ 22oz ][ RBWG Globe ][ Free ][ 2/6/14 ]
>> Thank you NeilsenRatings for the wale. Full haze orange pour. Dank bizarre hop nose: bright Habanero, fresh yellow bell pepper, fresh garden, cilantro, mild apple. Taste is green bell pepper, cilantro, bright vegetables. Normally these descriptors would sound disgusting, but this beer is pulling it off. Whatever hops these are, they are totally whack .

Bottle at RBWG 2014, thanks! Pours a near clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has notes of dank grass with a bit of pine and a light grain backbone. Flavor is more dank with bitter pine and grass as well as and earthy grain backbone.

Bomber thanks to Schlais. Pours clear light orange with a small head that fades quickly to a ring. Aroma is like dank Nelson hops with some onion. Tropical fruit, melon, grapes, onion, citrus. Taste has a light sweet and bitter balance. Fresh dank tropical hops mostly with some onion, white wine, kiwi, and spice. Fizzy and oily mouthfeel. Pretty good but the onion taste is a little strong here. And Iím very surprised this is listed as an APA. Should definitely be an IPA.

Clownoisseur (199) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Pours a nice golden color, 2 finger white fluffy head and sparkles int he glass. Aroma is of tropical fruits, pineapple, melon and some nice piney/earthy notes too. Taste is nice and balanced. Best of the XHops I have had yet. I like the floral/fruitiness of the hops, but this one has a nice bitter, soapy bite in the tail end. Rounds things out very nicely. The mouthfeel is very nicely balanced too. Not overly sticky or resinous, but definitely a juicy beer.

22 oz bottle shared by NielsenRatings I think. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have spicy hops, some earthy, and onion (although I donít know I would have said that if I hadnít read the reviews), grass, pale malts.

Bottle with thanks to Pepsi! Pours crystal clear orange with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is pine and spruce forward, like walking through an evergreen forest, complete with dank wet leaves. Flavor is lightly sweet and light bitter, dank, but not harsh. Medium body, oily mouthfeel and a fair amount of bitterness in the far finish. Interesting.
