What a great hazy IPA. A truly excellent IPA. This beer pours with a vanilla - yellow color and a delicious citrus aroma. They say pineapple, but if so, it's very diminished. But it doesn't keep this beer back from greatness. Excellent hop profile and robust mouth feel. There is a little grapefruit to this, but it's not overwhelming.

12oz can poured in Duvel tulip. Picked up from the grocery store. Typically part of a $10 six pack mixer but they rang up an individual for me for $2. Best by 09/01/19 printed on the bottom of the can. So this still has 4 months of freshness in it.

Appearance - Perhaps the most opaque beer I've ever seen. Beer is the same color as the can. Off-white head up top, and a creamy/tan orange body. Never seen an IPA that looked like this before. Decent stick and lacing. 4.5

Smell - That typical IPA grass but softer with a faint, round sweetness to it. 4.5

Taste - More or less what I expected from the appearance and smell. Though it is less sweet than I would have thought, and the hops are more forward than I would have thought. Still more rounded than a typical IPA. Has a bit of a grapefruit bitter aftertaste, which actually isn't very pleasant. 3.75

Mouthfeel - A bit more astringency than I was both expecting and hoping. 3.75

Overall - Enjoyable. Less than the sum of its parts. Wouldn't turn it down, but wouldn't go out of my way to buy it again. Interesting and unique, but more of a fun experiment than a 'eureka' moment on this recipe. 3.75

12 oz. can:

Pours cloudy yellow. A thin head leaves thin lacing down the glass.

The smell is primarily of pineapple and grapefruit.

The taste is of pineapple and grapefruit with medium bitterness in the finish.

It has a juicy, creamy body.

A well-made brew. They took the style and put their own spin on it, and it worked out great. A little more bitterness than usual for the style lingers, but in a good way. Very easy-to-drink. A SW twist on a NE style IPA (that still stays within style). Very enjoyable! (Almost gave overall a 4.0, but I bumped it up a notch.)

Pours a cloudy dirty straw color. Smell is grapefruit, lemons. Smells like a fruit stand. Taste is nice blend of fruit. No one fuiit is stronger than the other. Lemons, oranges, grapefruit, cantelope, honeydew. Slightly more bitter than others.

Marble's seasonal, I think. Had to try it while I was visiting.

Pours a turbid orange haze.
Light aroma, some pineapple juice. Smooth, mellow, juicy. This is good.
