Dust Bunny - Hazy IPADust Bunny - Hazy IPA
Notes: Dust Bunny is packed with aromatics of orange and lemon dripping with honey. Its soft yet bright body contributes notes of peach. Moderate bitterness balances a juicy mouthfeel for an all-around refreshing IPA.

12 oz can, best by 3/2/20, into Calusa snifter.

Pours a hazy foggy gold, with a creamy head of 2 fingers, receding slowly and destroying the glass with lace.

Aroma of grapefruit peel, lemon, and pine or grass, with hints of sweeter fruit probably mango and papaya.

Flavor brings caramel malt, hop spoilage despite being at least 3 months before its' best-by, pine, grass, remnants of what seem to be long-spoiled guava and passion fruit, and a finish of orange pith.

Feel is resinous and slightly juicy, medium bodied with a good crispness. Resins on the finish. Some moderate alcohol heat.

Overall, I was less than impressed at this IPA which should have been "optimal" for at least another month or two. Perhaps this one fades far before it specifies, as a result it was improperly advertised to me as a consumer and date-conscious can-checker. Wouldn't buy again.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, yellow-orange body with a good-sized, near white head. Decent lacing as we go.

Smell: Fruity flourishes of grapefruit, bitter orange and peach nectar backed by light florals and resiny notes and softened by a creamy wheatiness.

Taste: Reasonbly light sweetness atop wheat and lightly grainy, lightly bready barley kissed with honey. English marmalade, peach with a backing of floral and peppery resins. Medium bitterness. A bit of crisp grains before the dry finish with a little lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: Fairly solid.

Expected this to be blah... Surprise!
The appearance is nothing special, a hazy ipa is not the prettiest beer afterall. The taste is not super hoppy, but easily identified. It's citrus and floral bit not overkill. Very enjoyable.

Copper colored with exceptional haziness. There's a half inch of creamy brown on top. The aroma is of citrus and tropical fruit. I'm tasting more tropical fruit and then bitter citrus at the finish. The mouth is smooth and a tad creamy.

Best by 05/31/18.
Healthy head with good lacing, amber body.
Aroma is orange marmalade and grapefruit along with some herbaceous dank, weedy, onion/garlic.
Flavor is also dank and herbal with an inviting oniony hoppiness follow by more orange marmalade, grapefruit, and melon.
Feel is solid, moderate carbonated and very drinkable.
Excellent NEIPA beer no doubt.

pours a misty gold with a medium head that poofs. nose; bright juicy citrus aromas, mango, & lemon zest. taste; cracker malt, bitter mango, pineapple, lime pith, light pine resin,& citrus hops. strong metallic aftertaste, so much so that i feel like i may have gotten a bad can and i’m not factoring it into the review. medium carbonation & mouthfeel. decent ipa, and i’ll have to try another pour sometime down the road to see if the metal was a fluke.
