@moderntimesbeer Sky Party DIPA. 8% With Galaxy, Nelson, Citra and Amarillo hops.
I may not be fond of their widely distributed beers (shelfies if you will), but Modern Times brewery only releases continue to impress. This one is no different. 8% hazy with Galaxy, Nelson, Citra and Amarillo? Come on! Brewed in Portland, this one is picture perfect in the glass. Straw pale yellow in color and thick and murky in appearance. The nose is amazing with strong notes of pears, peaches, HOPS and oranges. Absolutely delicious smelling. You know when you take your first sip of a beer and immediately think you should have bought more? Yeah, this is one of those. Full bodied, creamy, fluffy, puffy and gritty in the mouth, you can tell right away this one is special. Totally in love with the mouthfeel and you just want it to roll around in your mouth to prolong the swallow. Peaches, apricots, mangos, tangerines, pineapple and gooseberries make love to your tongue with just a hint of dankness and a kiss of pepper. There is no sign of any alcohol and it has a nice final hop punch on the way down the throat. It’s juicy, it’s hoppy, it’s slightly bitter and it’s really frickin’ good stuff. I hate to compare beers, but the color, mouthfeel and hoppiness on this one have me thinking I’m drinking an Electric beer. I can’t pick up the glass fast enough once I put it down to take another sip. I’ve had a little run of not so great beers lately, but this has righted the ship. Wish my fridge was loaded with this one. Wow. So well done @moderntimesbeer.
