Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2007
4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bright red orange color, little head, lightly hazed...
Big hoppy nose, vibrant grapefruit, orange, and mango, fresh, flush, fruity. Niceness squared.
Taste it, a bitter, fruity blast...more of those same found in the nose, blasted upon the palate. Full-bodied, long finish...very full in flavor, very long bitter, hoppy, fruit-drenched finish.
Big malt, too, to match the extra-hoppiness, but just enough to match the extra-hoppiness. Not stronger in alcohol, though, a mere 5.5%. The IBUs are ungiven, but it feels much bolder and hoppier than the previous, much-admired Centennial PA.
I loved that one. I love this more...almost as good as Masala Mama...maybe?
