One of my favorite local double IPAs. Bright and juicy, without being too citrusy (like so many IPAs these days). Tastes super fresh with almost a resinous aftertaste. A tallboy of this will set you right- fantastic stuff- just wish we saw it more often.

On draft, Loosa Brews, AL.

Pours a deep gold, with small amounts of head rising up, but settling quickly back into the beer.

Sweet, fruity nose on this. Tropical mango nectar, clementine, hints of pineapple juice. There’s a subtle complexity here, with an emergence of more grassy hops on the back end.

More of the hops come forward in the flavors, with that tropical fruit and citrus still present, but this time serving as a nice contrast to an emergence of mildly spicy, grassy hops. Lightly bitter in the finish, but not unpleasantly.

A crisp IPA with a good carb level that goes down smooth and finishes with a mild stickiness.

Beautiful light copper body. Opaque haze but not hazebro hazy by any means. Lots of carbonation, minimal head of inconsistent bubbles and just a little spotty lacing.

Wonderful and layered nose. Tropical fruit, mango, dank wheat, musty white grape, grapefruit, pine, green tea, and damp grass. Comes together very uniquely and lively.

Taste isn’t quite as nuanced, but still very good. A little sweet, which I like, and very dank. Citrus juice, guava, grapefruit pith, a little resin, wheat cracker, wine grape, a little green astringency at the end. Maybe some berry notes, as well?

Feel is on point for a IIPA. Soft, velvety, medium-bodied with a nice carbonation.

Very good beer.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this can.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave nice blanket.

S - Big aromas of tropical notes, pineapples, pleasant citrus, little musty.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with sweet malts, nice sweet oranges, little pineapple, light mosaic.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, body is a bit thin though.

O - Overall this was a rather solid, nice blending of hops.

Thanks to Ravenforbeer (reddit), date smudged or rubbed off
Pours a nice fizzy bubbly 1/2 finger head that fades at a med pace, nice lacing, murky hazy pale orange color

Nose loads of citrus, grapefruit, a little rind, some lactose like creamy aroma maybe the wheat, little tropical and guava like, faint pine sap dankness, orange rind

Taste orange cream, lactose, creamy wheat, little pineapple tropical like, little tangerine, touch of pith and rind, touch guava, mild pine sap and plenty of rind, juicy a bit, mild bitterness

Mouth is med bod, decent carb

Overall not bad, mosaic is actually decent, rest of the hops are OK, although not a great IPA but good

Luscious ale. Hits all the benchmarks. Scratch that. It is a benchmark. Wonderfully clean. Fresh cut wheat grass up front with bitter-sweet orange marmalade goodness in the back end.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky pale yellow with a small white head. The aroma is heavy citrus with some faint piney hops. an excellent beer.

12oz can from Sherlocks (Marietta, GA). 10.99/ 4 pack. Canned 12/5/17. Served in a Monday Night snifter. Enjoyed 12/15/17.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a half finger cap of loose white foam. The head recedes, leaving some wispy haze, a fine halo and some wide swaths of lace.

Smells of orange rind, pine, grapefruit, vague melon and a little crackery malt.

The flavors are juicy and sweet. Oranges, papaya, grapefruit, cakey malt, faint pine, some light grassy hop character, slight lemon and a little vague melon. Dangerously easy to drink for the abv, I found it difficult to take my time.

The body is delightful. Soft medium feel with lightly fluffy carbonation. The lingering aftertaste is a blend of citrus and lightly tropical juices with a faint sweet hop bread.

This is some outstanding work from Monday Night. After years of IPA offerings that haven't necessarily agreed with my preferences Space Lettuce comes along and nails it. This is something I hope remains regularly available.

Had out of a can 12.15.17

The epitome of a delicious new age NE style foggy juice bomb— just ratchetted up in the DIPA sense. Nary a trace of booze, just a lush, rich zing in the finish. Seek this out and drink as much and as fast as you can.

Nice work Monday Night!
