Pours a hazy golden color with a finger of white head that went away quickly.

Aroma is a nice melody of fruity, danky hops and the adjuncts. Get a sweet strawberry note, a clean tartness from the rhubarb, lemon peel, herbaceous dankness, tiny bit of vanilla sweetness, grass, orange, and grapefruit.

Taste starts with sweet strawberries, lactose sweetness, dankness, and a light lemon tartness. Orange and grapefruit, as well as some light cracker malt and more lactose/vanilla sweetness make an appearance mid-palate to go with the aforementioned flavors. It dries out nicely into the finish, leaving a clean lemon and strawberry tartness to go with more dankness, orange, and an addition of a resin bitterness.

High light body. Crisp, lightly creamy, and pretty clean besides some stickiness from the sweetness.

The uniqueness of this beer attracted me to it and overall this delivers. The adjuncts are there, with strawberry and rhubarb being much more prominent than the vanilla. They are integrated well with the lactose sweetness and the danky, fruity hops.

Pours a hazed, golden-amber color, with a bubbly small head.

Smells very fruit forward, not overly ripe, of grass coated, luscious papaya, tangerine and lemon zest. There is actually a prickly sweet strawberry quality among this foundation, together with orange building up a sweet peak, gently countered by sour lemon peel.

Has a lighter body to it, together with a soft, lively carbonation, while finishing with a pleasant fruity dryness, which manages to remain the beers softness to the tongue entirely.

Tastes of sour strawberries, orange and lemon, with a sublime dankness to it, smoothing the taste, while bringing the flavors closer together at the same time, resulting in a very fruit focussed ipa. Its focus is quite unique though, due to its prominent unripe strawberry quality, which gets completed by more sour lime and a soft aqueous note. During its finish, the beer adds a pleasant dryness to the still prominent fruits, which shifts the focus a tad more onto the lemon, while crackery malts manage to balance the hop bill.

Its softness is one of the beers most outstanding qualities, resulting from a well pronounced aqueous characteristic, while managing to create a convincing hop depth at the same time. Strawberry adds just a minor hint of sweetness to the taste, which is enough to let it stand out on itself, balanced by sour lactose, which then blends into a nice fruity dryness. Focussed and unique.
