About Catalyst (Uprising Series)

This beer nears 100 theoretical IBUs. As such, you'd expect it to kick the crap out of your pallet and send you home to suck on ice cubes. Not here though. Brewed with Amarillo hops, the dominant flavor is grapefruit. It's very soft and easy on the tongue - really enjoyable. Somewhere around mid-pallet the grapefruit/pine/dank taste creeps in, just in time to keep the beer from being cloying or juice-like. The finish is where the bitterness finally hits you.
