“Take a trip to the outer limits. Excessive Machine, a huge hazy orgy of excess, where too much is barely enough. Brewed with unreasonable quantities of malt, jacked up on brewer’s sugar, then triple dry hopped with exorbitant amounts of Mosaic, Simcoe and Strata creating opulent layers of juicy tropical fruit, pineapple and passionfruit laced with dank resinous notes. Nothing succeeds like excess.”
Appearance: Hazy pastel orange with pastel yellow highlights. Nice thick haze going on. Two fingers of well retained head creates a fine lace down the glass.
Aroma: Oh wowsers it’s like a big boozy fruit salad.. the fruit profile coming off it is intense! Tonnes of pine resin and weedy herbals, dried coconut, peppery spice, juice concentrate, frosty fruits, mixed berries and one last thing we can’t quite our finger on. It’s best described as dank!! Just all sorts of danky goodness.
Flavour: Like a mirror image of the aroma: ripe and fleshy stone fruit, citrus, pineapple, guava, passionfruit, dank weedy herbals and pine. Some malt sweetness showing up too…really magnifies the sweet tropical fruits and subtle candy notes. The fruit salad character surges in to the slightly dry and pithy finish and hangs around for days!
Mouthfeel: Dense, smooth, chewy and luxurious. Medium-full body, mild-moderate CO2. The 10.2% ABV provides a bit of warmth but it’s generally well behaved for its size.
Overall: That’s a big (and we mean big!) statement from GP. Our only criticism would be that it borders on a cloying sweetness but in summary it’s a dangerously drinkable beast that’s sure to put hairs on your chest.
