Beer Review: War Mullet

Reviewing the War Mullet from Three Floyds Brewing Company out of Munster, Indiana.

Score: 96

Tap pour from the source, served in a footed beer glass and enjoyed on 04/12/14. Review is from iPhone notes.

Appearance: Pours a translucent tangerine yellow color with a thin layer of white head that settles to a foggy cap. Crazy lacing and retention. 5/5

Smell: The aroma is an orange/tangerine/grapefruit-forward citrus explosion, with a resiny fruity hop character and touch of earthiness. Absolutely awesome. 4.5/5

Taste: Juicy and bitter fruit and citrus flavors -- grapefruit and orange, with an earthy bitterness. Lingering earthy hop and orange rind flavors. Not an overly intense nor scorchingly bitter palate wrecker. Starts off with a nicely sharp bitterness that quickly mellows, but lingers. Has a nice underlying sweetness with a little fruity mustiness. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, low carbonation. Bitter with an underlying sweet juicy maltiness with lingering fruit character. Oily on the tongue. 4.5/5

Overall: Another home run hoppy beer from one of the midwest masters of hops. Seek this one out with confidence.

Cost: $5 for a 10 oz pour.
