Canned 4/2/18, drank 7/18/18 - bad on me. Seemed like it would have been great if I drank it fresh as all the other attributes were right-on, but could only get a whiff of strawberry and the hop haze had already started settling. Lesson learned. Look forward to trying one fresh. Tried to rate it around average anyway.

Poured a more yellow color than I was expecting, I thought strawberry milkshake would result in more of a pink or red appearance, but this was clearly yellow with at best, a very light pink hue only noticeable when held up to the light and on the edge. Aroma is a neat little mixture of Mosaic, Citra and Strawberries. I can dig it man, it tempers the Mosaic a little bit, so it isn't as offputting to people who aren't giant proprietary hopheads.

Taste is a nice mellow run. The bitterness is largely in check, the lactose addition is small yet complimentary. The strawberry flavors are in check, not overly sweet, very well done. Its a good mix of proprietary hops with some fruit and sweetness to cut down on those hop flavors. I liked it.

Pour milkshakey, very thick dark yellow with a rocky white head. I gotta be honest... I know this is within stye, but I really don't like the way these look. But whatever. Appearance is a dumb thing to knock points off for.

Smells of very intense Mosaic hops and not all that much else. As it warms I kinda get a little bit of strawberry in the aroma, but it's mostly just the Mosaic.

Tastes more balanced, with the citra and berries shining through a bit (though they are still overpowered by the Mosaic). Citrus and light spice up front, getting fruitier and more tropical in the middle, and finishing with a wash of OJ and lemon.

big seedy strawberry up front provides an almost tart flavor, blueberry gelato, peach, grapefruit, some mellow vanilla sweetness and a creamy quality. there are some mellow herbaceous green notes and a pithy smack of bitterness on the finish rounds this one out. all of the adjuncts are detectable but none are overly assertive. a really interesting and well rounded beer, excellent stuff!

#700

Pours a hazy thick gold with a big frothy cap. Nose is pure hops. Sweet bright tropical fruit, grapefruit, and tangerine. Really pungent. Not picking up strawberry, just candied tropical fruit. Taste is bitter hops clashing with sweet and creamy malts and oats. Apple is more apparent than strawberry, but digging it either way. Really cool direction! Feel is mega thick with underlying bitterness after the candy sweet hops.

Glad I traded for this one and certainly delicious! One of the most memorable beers I've had. This is a traditional IPA (a damn good one) just with some added depth and texture
