Unfiltered milky appearance. Fresh grainy aroma. Very smooth with a slightly hoppy bite. Could very well be my favorite IPA!

Two fingers of soapy white foam cap a body that is pale, blonde and hazy. It is lively in the glass and leaves some nice lacing.

The nose is pretty good as far as strength goes, juicy pineapple and tropical hop aromas make me want to drink this faster than I should. Taste is a bit juicy with moderate hop bitterness. The Citra hops come through along with the same tropical profile that was apparent in the nose. The Hop flavors are a little muted though, possibly a freshness issue. It is still a pleasure to drink. It feels soft, smooth and somewhat pillowy. This has a little weight, call it medium bodied with carbonation a bit on the mild side. It is a little acidic as a slight bite builds over the course of the beer.

This is a great IPA, one that I would certainly like to revisit.

Such a great beer: I would say it's Tired Hands best beer. Definitely their best single IPA. Hazy, has notes of blueberries. Totally crushable, whenever I can get my hands on these I buy as many as possible. Thank good or was they're starting to Can it more often!!

This beer is great. So smooth for a hazy IPA but so flavorful still. Great Nose and mouthfeel. Especially compared to some of these heavy hazy iPas these days, this one is crushable and smooth

Another unfiltered milkshake looking brew although the head dissipated before I dug in...looks awesome ! Scent is of grapefruit citrus but light on scent. Another flavor winner, sweet/bitter and citrus and malt oh my. This is a taste winner here. Medium mouthfeel with slightly less carbonation. Overall flavor wins.
