A tribute to the metal band Nuclear Assault, this Double IPA is bright and crisp with a combination of citrus, peach and fresh cut grass on the nose. The flavors combine tons of lemon and grapefruit peel from the hybrid hops and is rounded out by sweet caramel notes.

330ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Looks:Clear straw golden honey colour with a thin ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; One finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Good sticky lacing with active slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and fruity Ale malt, with strong mangoes, strong peach, passion fruits, tropical fruits, floral, fructose, spices, light pine, biscuits, lemon and fresh grass.

Taste: Mid to strong sweet full Ale malt, with caramel, strong grapefruits, strong citrus peels, floral, sugar, spices, herbs, strong pine, resins, dry biscuits, very strong lime, very strong bitter hops and sharp grass.

Body: Full body. Very slick and oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Rich Ale maltyness in a thick and slick background. Very immense grapefruit and peely citrus dominate with an undertone of caramel. Flowery with strong sweetness well balanced by loads of hoppiness. Very piney and oozy. Herbal spicy with very strong lime to round. Overbearing but nice!

Hoppiness: Strong mangoes, strong peach, passion fruits, tropical fruits, floral, spices, light pine, lemon and fresh grass in nose. Strong grapefruits, strong citrus peels, floral, spices, herbs, strong pine, resins, very strong lime, and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is very strong for a lasting, very high astringent sweet-bitter herbal malty finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Piney citrusy and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one's hoppy kitchen sink approach has a very pleasant tropical fruity aroma, rich maltyness, and powerful hoppiness in grapefruit peels, lime, herbs, pine and resins. It's domineering, but all in a good way for us hopheads. Recommended!

Great IPA! Not very flowery and more on the bitter side, but anyhow a good mikkeller.

Bottle from Pezinská pivná pumpa.
Post apocalyptic survivors report. No big deal. No radiation, some citruses in aroma. Taste radiationless, hops and vanilla. Okay, but missing the big hit.

Westchesterco (2205) - mclean, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2017
