Canned on 10/4/22; consumed on 11/12/22

Pours a turbid, milky lemon-gold body capped with over two fingers of fluffy, white foam; solid head retention yields a half-finger of wavy cap, large, sudsy collar, and myriad spattering of chunky, soapy lacing caked across the walls of the glass.

Aromas of saccharine grapefruit phase through underlying key lime, with a bready malt base invigorated by clementine zest over time.

Taste shows musty lemon cracker underscore boggy grapefruit as key lime washes over tangy guava nuance; mossy resins on the back end offer earthiness as a touch of creamy mango lingers.

Mouthfeel brings a medium-full body and a rounded, fluffy carbonation, dispersing an airy prickle to a creamy fade over the mid-palate as a raw hop twang lingers and a juicy brightness washes over the finish.

Twangy and sweet, an imbalance boils over through covert booziness and only shades of deeper saturation, leaving a NETIPA wanting for more cohesion and controlled intensity.

Sweet pineapple and stonefruit, tropical hoppy, and hint of fruity dank nose on this one! Taste follows with a sweet pineapple, slightly earthy, slightly dry, and hoppy bitter bite. As it warms, the dry-earthiness and some grapefruit citrus bitter booziness comes out. This is so soft and juicy on the palate. Outstanding!

Hazed out peach juice in a glass. Aromas of orange sherbet, mango, cotton candy, booze, vanilla, and pineapple. Taste follows with a touch of grapefruit, and herbaceous notes. The finish is soft, creamy, and carbonated to near perfection. This beer is as BIG as its namesake, in both flavor & alcohol content. That said, it's delicious and well worth the price of admission.

Canned 04/11/18 ‘SMALLS’.

A deep-hued rusty orange pour, again like Mango juice. Heavy lace leaves its mark all around the glass.

The nose on this is so dank and boozy, but at the same time a clear tropical presence comes through, dominated by mango, citrus, pineapple and malt. There's no mistaking this for anything other than a TIPA.

The flavors are more of the same, characterized by big boozy notes and tropical fruit. Mango, pineapple and citrus all come through, and it finishes with a full bodied stickiness and a low, almost seltzery carbonation. Biggie, Biggie, Biggie, can't you see? Sometimes your beers just hypnotize me.
