22oz bottle poured into a globe.

A: Clear golden color with hues of orange. One finger’s worth of bone-white head settles quickly. A scraggly ring of lacing and some small spots remain.

S: Pureed mango, pithy white grapefruit, pineapple, mandarin orange. Perhaps hints of passion fruit. Very subtle ester component. Doughy malt base with a touch of caramel.

T: There’s a dank, resin and hemp seed type of bite right at the front, but it mellows out very quickly after that. Mango, white grapefruit, mandarin orange, pineapple. Even keel of bitterness. Oily and leafy. Dough and caramel contributions from the malt. Easy and playful finish of tropical fruits and a receding bitterness.

M: Medium bodied. Full with a slight weight. Moderate level of sharp scrubbing carbonation.

O: It isn’t the most memorable DIPA, but it’s tasty and it scores high marks in the drinkability department. This isn’t the type of beer that is out to win the hop-nuke pissing contest- it’s more about relaxing and having a few, maybe letting it sneak up on you a little more than you should. It’s a refreshing approach. The easy finish is particularly appealing.

No date on this. But wanted to try it anyway...

A- Completely clear. Darker golden color. Seems thick - slow moving bubbles. Not much carbonation, but decent fluffy head.
S- Pine, light grapefruit, has the familiar Mosaic blueberry aroma I'm not quite sure I'm a fan of. Smells a bit sweet, I feel like this will be a little heavy on the palate. Cherry aroma as well, almost like candy. Pretty good, not my favorite aroma though.
T- Super sweet. The aroma didn't give anything away as far as faded hops, but this may have faded. Fairly malt forward. Bitterness and some warming alcohol going down. This brewery does not date their bottles, which is a detriment. I can't say I particularly care for this. The hops I do get are again cherry, almost cough drop-like.
M- Way too heavy. I'd call it medium full. Very low carbonation. It's probably technically barely acceptable, but it's frankly way off what it should be.
O/D- Not my favorite DIPA. If I knew it was old I wouldn't even rate it - but since it's not dated, it's fair game.

Appearance is a hazy light copper with some golden edges. There was a finger of fluffy white head that stuck around for a long time and left thick layers of lacing on the glass. There is the distinct essence of grapefruit on the finish. There is a touch of sweetness upfront (probably from the malt) and the finish is mildly hoppy.

This is a very drinkable IPA that will go down easy and then sneak up on you when it is time to get off the bar stool.

Three heads
Too Kind IPA

Pours a deep gold with a copper hint.
Nose of tropical fruits and orange creamsickle. A bit more herbal features are also present. Sappy and resinous to the taste, lots of citrus rind flavors. Mild complimentary bitterness for a beer of this strength. Medium bodied, smooth creamy feel. This is light for a double IPA of its size. Quite drinkable, crisp, damn tasty , could be a staple.

Wow....probably the best IPA I have had from a NY brewer!! Kudos to Three Heads. The beer poured a clear orangish color with thin white head that is leaving some lace. The smell has fresh hops that is more heavy on the pine than citrus. The taste has a decent sweet malt throughout the drink, with fresh hops present. The mouthfeel is full body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a tasty beer and I must thank my bro in law!!!!
