Crucial Taunt was the first one we opened. This one struck us as a flagship beer for The Veil, so we decided to make our initial impression off of it. The beer poured really well. Nice and bright and clear with a great fluffy bright white head. I’ve read some descriptions of this beer giving off fruity hop aromas but I was hit with pine and juniper, which was not what I was expecting to smell. It was a wonderful surprise. The beer then had an acidic first sip, not sour, just acidic. It smoothed out to a really well balanced IPA hiding the alcohol of this double IPA at 8%. Then the beer finished dry, which rushed the next sip to my mouth. Overall a really nice beer. On the inside I was a little jealous I had to share it.
