Purchased as a six-pack from a Marathon for $11.99. Poured into a nonic pint glass.

L - Pale, yet hazy orange with a half-finger eggshell head that dissipates after a few minutes.
S - Pine, freshly-cut grass, and citrus rinds. Juicy. Faded notes of pineapple and papaya. A hint of underlying matzo.
T - Pineapple, pine tar, and a general juicy citrus backing. Grass. Grapefruit around everything. Oat on the finish.
F - Medium carbonation with a clean finish. Very dry.
O - A very laid-back IPA. Despite it being a noticeably good IPA, it didn't leave much of an impression on me. Beautiful artwork on the can, though.

What a great beer. Pours, not too hazy, but just right. Nose is juicy. Head and lacing are beautiful. Ever so slight powdery feeling that I always seems to get with the haxy’s.

CAN: 12 fl oz pull-tab.

"Double dry-hopped hazy pale ale." 5.5% ABV.

Mellow, emphasizing what I've heard the kids these days call a "green" hop flavour. Mild hop oils. Vague citrus. Melon. I wouldn't call it juicy but it's got a fruity flavour to it - something cool and refreshing and close to lychee but not lychee. Papaya maybe? Balanced and enjoyable, with pale malt (and probably wheat?) giving it its approachably neutral backbone.

Certainly drinkable. Its hop profile doesn't dazzle and most days of the week I'd sooner drink a fresh bottle of Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale, but this is well worth trying.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned February 4th 2020.

An opaque but glowing light lemon body color, with a supper rich creamy filling bright white head of three fingers. Very fine bubbles in the head, with ring lacing, and a creamy island retention volcano. Settles real slowly looking like a great IPA.

Aroma is straight up big pineapple tropical hop notes. There's also touch of green herbal sweetness of hop in here as well making for a real nice balance between hop leafy aromas and slight sweet tones. Neutral malt and yeast presence making for an excellent hop showcase.

Palate seems to lay back and take it easy. A pretty simple malt backbone, but could flirt with a wet quality. Still the base flavors come through, but not as grand. Light touches of pineapple and almost chalky herbality on the palate. Fairly fruity finish but a hair hinting wet as well. Slightly hinting perhaps at some dryness in the aftertaste too.

A great sensing Pale Ale is merely just a good one, and that's not a bad thing at all. Thinking this as an IPA makes for some downplayed quality, but as a pale ale it fits.

Funny how a nose can misdirect. The nose is a bit acrid and funky but the taste is luscious, fruity and mildly hoppy with plenty of ripe tropical taste in a great package of taste.

I don't get the name of this beer...May e they just couldn't think of anything g good...but I'm loving the beer itself. Pours hazy like a NEIPA with a big creamy head that leaves lace all over. Nose is big for a 5.5% beer with citrus and bubblegum. Taste is pretty full for the ABC as well. Not really NEIPA in flavor, but has a solid bitterness and juicy flavor. Kind of a classic PA flavor with a little tropical, which I wasn't expecting after the nose. I would drink this all the time if it was available. Really solid all-round for a pale ale. Excellent.

Look: Hazy golden yellow with an inch of finely bubbled foamy head. Good retention, visible lacing.
Smell: Smells like tropical fruits, pineapples, mangoes and tangerines. Plenty of herbal notes also.
Taste: Sweet and fruity with a lingering pithy grapefruit finish.
Feel: Feels full and clean. Carbonation is fine and plentiful giving the beer a pleasantly dry finish.
Overall: This beer fills a different niche. It is a hazy American Pale Ale. Haven’t come across a lot of beers that identify themselves this way. I liked it. I will buy it again. If fact, the more I drink it, the better I like it.

Following up from a Mystic Mama. Let's compare.

L: Pale straw. Completely opaque. Carbonation and lacing are... present.

S: Big tropical citrus hops. Malt+yeast is a little sweet and tangy.

T: Tastes great, like there's actual papaya. This is a traditional pale ale (Not IPA, nor American IPA) with dry-hop properties.

F: The hops flavors are on the front palate. The difference between Mystic Mama and Who Cooks For You is this doesn't leave resin all the way to the back palate (which is the entire point of dry-hopping). Finishes dry and fairly clean.

O: These hops are great. The malts are good too but who cares? Who Cooks For You provides a much more moderate buzz than Mystic Mama. I'd pick one over the other based strictly on how functional I plan on being.

This brew may become my go-to dry hop (previously Shorts Brut IPA)
