We doubled the massive amount of hops used in our original Ghost in the Machine recipe resulting in a mind-blowing Citra hop experience.

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased on Tavour
Manifested 11/15/23
Served in a tulip

Pretty extreme appearance. The beer poured an insanely cloudy, almost milky looking, straw yellow hue. A thin, frothy film topped the liquid, but it quickly dissolved. There was no lacing whatsoever.

The aroma was fantastic. It was super dank and fruity. Tropical fruit notes came through strongest. Loads of tangy passionfruit and sweet mango. Ripe peach was also apparent. Bit of juicy citrus too. The dankness subsided pretty quickly but reappeared later.

The flavor profile was also impressive, though more bitter and somewhat simpler than the nose. Citrus notes dominated. Nice mix of juicy orange flesh and bitter orange peel. Tangy tangerine notes were also apparent. Touch of lemony tartness in the center. Hint of passionfruit too. More citrus peel and rind-like bitterness on the back end and the finish.

The mouthfeel was amazingly fluffy and soft. Medium-light bodied for the style. The beer contained a super fine and zippy effervescence that gave this beer and terrific suppleness on the palate.

Ghost In The Machine - Double Dry-Hopped Is an impressive beer and similar in many regards to some of the better offerings by Tree House, Trillium, etc. From what I can recall, this DDH version is better than the original, but I would need to do a side by side comparison to confirm this.

Long time want, missed out on first chance I had to buy on Tavour. Wish I got more than two. Pours like thick cloudy orange juice, minimal head and lacing. Smell is strong on the pour, still lasts as it’s drank: citrusy-orange, grapefruit. Slightly dank and a hint of pint. Big juicy citrusy taste, mildly tangy. Medium bodied, crisp, super easy to drink. Just as good as the original - one of the best NEIPA’s I’ve ever had.

Poured from a 16 ounce can dated 11-15-23 into a teku glass.

Look- Straw, very hazy, opaque, sudsy white head, below average head retention and lacing.

Smell- Clementine, grapefruit, pineapple, medium strength of scent.

Taste- Clementine, pithy, grapefruit, pineapple, pine, between medium and high strength of flavor.

Feel- Full body, slightly below average carbonation, mildly astringent, moderately bitter, moderately creamy, mildly prickly.

Overall- Nice drinking experience, but the pithiness was a slight detractor.

Exquisite soft, light, milky yellow body; relatively thin head, white and lasting. Pleasant scent combination of biscuit and light citrus notes. Well-balanced flavors; oats and wheat with a nice hop citrus bitterness; white grapefruit. Heavy body; dense and silky with a fine bitterness burn and alcohol warmth.

Overall, a very nicely done hazy India pale ale. The double dry hopping isn't extreme in any manner. This would be very interesting über fresh, say, on tap at the brewery on release day.

It pours completely opaque with a generous white head. It bursts of citrus aromas with a tiny hint of tropical fruit. The taste is where it's at with this beer (just like with the OG). So mellow and balanced, no weird off flavors like many hazies, and it ends with a subtle but definitely present bitterness.

Resinous and bitter in the first sip, with a rounded Citra sweetness. Each sip gets less bitter and rounder. Extremely smooth going down, but the mouthfeel could leave more to be desired. Aroma is a huge Citra bomb, and I wish they made candles like this. Pretty dang hazy too, exactly what you'd expect in a NEIPA.
