Drake's Aroma Coma

Wow! That was my simple remark after opening up American craft beer number 325: Aroma Coma by Drake’s Brewing Company. Nobody heard the remark as I was drinking the beer by myself but I did utter it.

Aroma Coma lives up to the name, easy. Of course, unless you don’t have a pulse, a beer like this has to be a hoppy beer. And damnit, it was. Tons of grapefruit, tropical fruits, and even pine come through on the nose. The taste doesn’t back done. Bitterness is there to begin as grapefruit pushes this up a notch. Pine is the main hop in the end that hangs out for a brief stay in the finish.

Each Drake’s beer that I have seems to get better and better. Those who live close are fortunate. Enjoy!

Aroma: 10 (25%), Taste: 10 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 9 (35%), Overall: 9.5

Useless Fact: Humans are only second to cats for having the dirtiest mouths.
