Dacrza's rating

4.2
Dacrza (961) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 29, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Duvel snifter... OCCASION: drafting while draughting (reused pun, for draft number 2)--a big-bodied beer for a big boy draft!... APPEARANCE: beautiful soft orange with a steady, centered eruption of bubbles; thick, creamy head is staunch and off-white--yes, perfect... AROMA: the shock and awe of the IBUs is on display, with the majority of the scent of a pine cone slicing through an orange, mango and pineapple simultaneously into a hop bomb shish kebob; as advertised ...PALATE: creamy, stirring thickness with an immediate warmth that seers, then cradles the throat; balanced overall, with a reasonable aftertaste...TASTE: delicious citrus (plum and pineapple pervade) are unrelenting; the alcohol metes its energy out as the glass drains; the aftertaste of funky yeast is a little difficult to take pleasure in... not knowledgeable enough to construe the good news/bad news of the label’s CO2 hop extraction explanation, I defer to my senses and buy into its overt toasty malt/hop balance, mostly--not as much as Adrian Peterson being my #1 pick... OVERALL: this beer is BIG, blessed with a peripheral attractiveness and a substance that follows up reasonably on its initial promise...impossible to remove the hop from the teeth, like the Altoid of the beer world...worth the bomber and its relatively fair price tag...

6/25/17 (Chicago). 12 oz bottle poured into standard pint glass. Blonde clear pour, minimal white head or lacing, mild carbonation. Sweet pine, orange, malt and hops aroma. Very pleasant bitter taste, balanced with the sweet orange pine taste. Strong mouth presence, firm feel, nice drinking. Overall very good beer, glad I picked up a six pack!

[email protected] K, Kurvi. Slighty cloudy golden color, white head. Rich, sweet hoppy aroma. Aromatic hop flavor with sticky malts, hints of alcohol that linger in the finish. Full body, medium carbonation. Nice.

Aroma is caramel, piney, earthy. Taste is bitter, sweet, and piney. Texture is on the thin side for an imperial IPA. Brew has a great bitter finish to satisfy hop cravings. Easy to drink despite being 8% abv. Great price also.

I don't give a fuck what rare beer wants. It's beer buddy, not rate beer. Get their own fucking app and quite fucking with a good thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MaltOne (366) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Pours clear, light copper, with white frothy head. Aroma is strong citrus/grapefruit, with a little background farmhouse mustiness. Flavor follows the aroma with a the farmhouse taking a slightly larger role. Palate crisp and medium bodied - a big bright hop top with a chewy malt base. Overall very straightforward, balanced ale - very nice. While not complex, I could drink on a regular basis.

Gorgosh (494) - SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2017
Inte helt överraskande är det en ormgrop av humle vi har framför oss. Aromen är tropisk och blommig och tropisk och fruktig och tropisk och ja, rabblandet skulle kunna pågå ett bra tag. Smaken är desto mer komplex men kraftigt dominerad av en överdrivet hög beska som hänger kvar bakom öronen i nåt som känns som en evighet. Imponerande att i allt detta humlande lyckas gömma en så hög alkoholhalt i en skaplig maltkropp dessutom.

3.8
ttoadee (1483) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2017
Honey gold pour, finger of frothy white, nice lacing. Nose is woody with a light funky note, ever so subtle. Bitter. Middle is noticeable alcohol, some yeasty earthiness, peach, and cedar. Finish is bitter, semi dry, lasting.

3.7
jhamp9 (1835) - Corinth, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2017
Clear honey pour with a white head and sticky lacing. Aroma is citrus, dank, pine, and toffee. Taste is dank, pine, grapefruit rind, and a hint of toffee sweetness. Firm bitterness. Pine and dank aftertaste. Medium body.
