krystalweizen-The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus and bananas. Then some bready flavors of wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.
Pours a hazy bright orange hue with a thick creamy white head. smells heavily of hop resin and tangerine peel. sticky sweetness up front with a big citric fruit presence. some coriander flavors meld in the middle with the malt back bone which is whisked away by a big dosing of piney bitterness. very clean finish however flavors are layered to present a unique flavor profile leaving a tangerine like aftertaste on your breath.
The beer pours a light orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of resinous pine, with some sweet candy notes also thrown in. I also get a bit of toffee and biscuit malt in the aroma. The flavor is very similar. The pine and resin notes are very apparent, but there is also some juicy orange citrus thrown in for good measure. The biscuit malt is also present and keeps the bitterness in check, although it is definitely present. The hop flavors are very bold and are very well done. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. An excellent Double IPA.
Chocolate dominates the front end, with a bit of alcohol coming through (surprising); after the swallow, a bitter, roasty flavor appears and leads to the coffee-influenced finish

Extreme bittering patterns and massive flavor oscillations are the new normal.
Big in body, alcohol and IBUs, this drinks more like a hop barleywine (but not a hoppy barleywine). As a beefy beer it does its job well as its tastes and smells pretty good and is surprisingly drinkable, too.
