My 100th logged review!

I have a bias against local brewers often. I don’t know why, but dammit, some are making pretty good drinks. Robots are Cool by War Horse. DDH NEIPA with Citra, Mandarina, and Moteuka. 9% ABV. Canned 02/12/20. Grapefruit nose all day from a foot away. Thick creamy head, one might call pillowy. First sips are bold but not overpowering grapefruit, sweet like a red grapefruit, no bitter pithiness. Slight mandarin orange in the middle with a tiny hint of bitterness toward the back. Lactose does well to keep it creamy smooth like a smoothie. Alcohol is nowhere to be found. Incredibly easy to take big swigs and down this 16 oz bad boy. Loads of lacing, head stays fully across the whole surface throughout. Really good. I guess I do like beers other than barleywines and stouts!

Another reviewer from a 2018 offering gave it a big ick, but they must have listened and improved the bejeezus out of it. 16 oz size is just right. I suggest you give it another shot!

Hard to even drink. They add lactose to sweeten it which I find completely unnecessary. Taste like sunny d and vodka. Would never recommend to anyone. Keystone light would be a better choice...
