Legend tells of a mythical "peak" that the human brain can hit after a beer or two - atop this peak all tasks flow with creativity and ease. Computer programs come to life, musical symphonies are born... and delicious beer recipes are created. We worked with the scientific geniuses from Equilibrium Brewery on an all Citra-hopped triple IPA that represents the precarious wonder of this Ballmer Peak. Pouring an eye catching golden yellow with a heavy milky haze, Ballmer Peak has an explosively aromatic nose revealing mouthwatering tones of mango nectar, pineapple slices, and vibrant orange peel. Ripe stone fruit flavors of apricot and peach build on the palate adding to a melange of tropical papaya, lime, melon and lychee. With a pillowy soft mouthfeel, pleasant biscuity sweetness, and rounded floral bitterness, Ballmer Peak is an open invitation to explore your own creativity.

Enjoyed 22 days after canning. Pours a murky mustard yellow color with a small white-ish head. Aroma's of dank hops, honey, juicy fruit, oats. Retronasal it's very dank, resinous, sweetish, onion. Flavour is moderate bitter with some honey-ish sweetness and dank hops. Warming alcohol. Medium bodied. Moderate hopburn. Long finish, somewhat dry, dank and moderate bitter. Could do with a little less alcohol. (Double IPA would have been just fine). Still very nice.

Nice pithy citrus. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Citrus and some oily notes decent.

Not bad. Super boozy, sweet middle, lingering bitter at the end
