Picked this up recently at Gary's in Wayne as I hadn't had a beer from Westbrook in nearly five years. I love the Milkshake beers from Tired Hands and was a fan of this too, as they had quite a bit in common. Love the old-time feel of the label as it was on par with the dessert feel of this beer!

Not much of a surprise that this beer poured like a milky juice bomb as it was plenty hazy with an off-gold hue and a relatively bright appearance to it. Not a lot of head topped it off and there was even less lacing left behind with a deep, but thin layer of rocky bubbles lingering near the top of my pint glass. Lots of orange, tangerine, and sugary sweetness in the mild nose as the taste combined the best aspects of all of those. Not overly sweet, pithy, or tangy, this was a creamsicle in liquid form without a lot of carbonation to scrub the flavors away. The citrus really came through once this fully warmed up as this had plenty of body and milk sugar to counter and complement the fruit presence!

It was hard to detect the alcohol in here as this went down easily and only had faint traces of dank hops in the aftertaste. Canned on 7/29, this felt fresh as there wasn't any sediment in the liquid or leftover at the bottom for my last sip. Really enjoyed this beer and how fun it was, as everything was nicely in proportion. Get one before the weather cools off!

Great color. Nice foam. Pours like a solid NE DIPA. Great for summer. Downside is a little too much orange peel after taste. Best to split a can with a friend.
