To be honest, I have no idea what I am getting myself into with B. Nektar Meadery Evil Genius. It’s a hybrid mead-IPA.
Hardly any color. Just a hint of yellow distinguishes it from water. Although, because of how clear it is, it’s fun to watch the bubbles constantly float to the top of the glass. Aroma is very inviting with a mix of sweet honey and citrus hops.
Flavor is very unique. Loads of sweetness from honey and grapes, counteracted by a hit of hops. Interesting finish, as well. Lick your lips and get a hint of sweetness, but the bitterness and dryness from the hops lingers.
Quite tasty. Bonus points for creativity, cleverness, and the label.
