Notes / Commercial Description:
There’s nothing quite like your first taste. Hop farmers are breeding insane new flavors—one sip and you’ll be hooked. To truly harness these new flavors though, you’ve got to dabble a bit and test them out. The new hop blend blew our minds, so for DABBLE, we’re taking our experiment full scale with massive loads of hops so everyone can experience it. Sabro provides an incredible coconut note, Cashmere brings a soft, delicate complexity, and Idaho 7 brings potency and depth. Dip a toe in—dare to DABBLE.

Beautiful beer with an incredible mouthfeel, very unique and intriguing aromas, but taste profile that doesn’t keep up.

Extremely hazy orange-yellow body with an off-white head that in its own was somewhat unnotewoethy but when swirled in the glass created a wonderful foam of soapy bubbles. Minimal lacing, however.

Incredible musty dankness on the nose, with big doses of tropical fruit, type citrus, and pina colada. Melon, white grape, and a bizarre but likeable key lime pie note that makes for a truly unique overall profile.

But the tongue doesn’t keep up. Certainly some flow-through notes of grape, lemon-lime, coconut, creamsicle, a little tart berry, and dank grass. But it’s not nearly as intriguing or harmonious as the nose, and could use a little more tropical fruit and a little less lemon. Still tasty, but it could have been epic.

The real all-star aspect is the feel, which is wonderfully creamy and velvety. Well carbonated, silky but not sticky.

This one pours a murky/milky dark straw yellow color. There was a wisp of an off white head that didn't leave any lacing. It has a good nose. A plethora of tropical fruit juices, with a bit of coconut. The taste is quite good. Similar to the nose, but a very subdued sweetness. A touch of tartness and bitterness. A keeper!

Look: a yellow-amber hazy color with a thick off white head.
Aroma: bright tropical notes with pineapple, mango, tangerine, and also herbal notes.
Taste: sure enough, coconut is there. The tropical notes are bright and mix well. The herbal elements are there but in the background. Medium bitterness.
Feel: Soft feel with prickly carbonation.
Overall: an excellent NEIPA. Interesting flavors in this one. Recommended.

12oz can served in a stemless wine glass. Dated 14 Jan 2019. Bought it at Captain's in Port Charlotte, FL.

Pours a hazy amber color with a small head and not much carbonation. Smell is fruit juice. Mango and passionfruit for sure.

Taste is along the same lines. This is a fruit bomb.

Mouthfeel is dry, medium bodied. Overall, I like this beer.

Coconut, mandarin orange and pineapple dominate the nose with this pale, cloudy DIPA. Head disappates quickly leaving looks like a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice. Mouthfeel is very fizzy and taste is orangey and coconutty. Interesting feel with this one being very active as it hits the mouth and them almost going to nothing within a couple seconds. Very refreshing and hardly any feel of yhe higher abv.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy pale yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of limes and melons are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of coconuts along with notes of limes and melons. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This was the first time that I had Sabro hops in a beer and I really liked the coconut flavors that they imparted to the taste. I would definitely try this beer again.

Serving type: can

Poured a cloudy orange body with minimal head and lace ring down glass. Mildly acidic aroma with no bitterness on hoppy aroma at all. Smooth, filling, clean, no bitterness, sweetness that is juicy and tropical with a slight stickiness on finish.

It looked good and smelled really good with a lot of pungent fruit in the nose, but the flavor came off like a pina colada and more often than not was too sweet for my liking. The sweetness hid the ABV well, but this went too far over the line as the taste negated what was a nice in the aroma. The brewery beer notes state that "Sabro provides an incredible coconut note", which it seems it does, but that got it off course in my view. Worth a shot if you like experimental IPA's or a pina colada (getting caught in the rain...).

This is a great IPA with a lot of strong positives. The only thing that keeps it from being even closer to perfect is that the herbal hops taste come off as a little medicinal which was just slightly off-putting. Other than than this was a very surprising brew. Much higher quality than its rankings.

Pours a very hazed amber with a tumb of ivory colored head. Some lacing, no head retention

S Necatrines, faint grain notes

T: Peaches, leafy hops, bready dryness & a little bit of orange up front. More leafy hops, peaches & dryness as this warms, just a little orange. Finishes dry, with juicy peach

MF: Medium body, light carbonation

Easy enough to drink, just didn't wow me

Pours a cloudy apricot color with a thick white head that falls away quickly but leaves generous lacing. Lots of dark floating particles. Aroma is brightly tropical. Flavor is sweet tropical fruit, honey and coconut. No bitterness. Feel is creamy, low carbonation. Overall a delicious beer.

A: Pours a hazy orange color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid DIPA that is quite interesting in terms of the hop combo. Easy to drink. Check it out

12oz can. Pours a hazy brownish orange with an inch of head. Some lacing. The aroma is pineapple, lime, orange and coconut. The taste is kind of pina colada-ish. Pineapple, lime, coconut, orange and peach. Medium body with a slick mouthfeel and moderate amount of alcohol heat. Borders on being too sweet but it works well enough.
