Brewed Feb 13 2018 and enjoyed May 23 2018. Outrageously fresh, juicy, hazy, boozy. Amazing that this has held on to its flavors and body for so long. Wish I had another can.

From a 16oz can, dated 02/13/18. Served in a spiegelau-style IPA glass.

An opaquely milky glass of grapefruit juice with a scant half finger of loose, fizzy head. Retention isn't worth speaking of and leaves a thin collar and some sparse, slippery lacing.

A soft aroma of damp cereal and OJ.

Taste is thick, juicy and doughy. Like the nose, it is reminiscent of a glass of orange juice with a bowl of porridge. Not a heck of a lot of complexity, just thick and juicy as all get out and I'm not saying I don't like it, because this is just the kind of shit I live for.

Feel is smooth and juicy, hefty bodied and adequately carbonated. You can taste the 10% abv but you don't feel it going down.

Overall... may I say it? It's fucking delicious. But not like beer. You could swap this out for someone's mimosa and they might think it tasted funny but it wouldn't occur to them that it wasn't actually a mimosa.

Poured from a 16 ounce can dated 2/13/18.

Pours an opaque pineapple juice color with a slight white head. Has a boozy, citrus smell. The booze doesn't overpower, but it's definitely present. Taste also is citrus with a little bit of booze at the end. It's sweet, but not too sweet. Slight bitterness as well. Medium feel, but nice and smooth. Not much of a lingering of taste. Overall a very nice beer. It has a slight boozy taste, but is still very easy to drink for a 10% beer.

LAX 2 JFK - Monkish feat. Other Half
TIPA - 10% abv
Canned 2/13/18 (26 days ago)

L - 1-finger bright white head bubbles down to a thin topcoat in under a minute. Body is deep orange with some brownish tones. A little off from OJ, but close.

S - strong tropical citrus. Pineapple, melon, grapefruit. A little sweetness and booziness too.

T - follows the nose. The 10% is impressively well hidden by the barage of acidic citrus. Minimal bitterness. Some sweetness in the background, but it doesn’t distract from the intense hop goodness.

F - medium-full body with medium carb.

O - If I tried this blind I would have probably guessed Other Half. It’s very similar to their best DIPAs/TIPAs, and I mean that in the best possible way. I really dig this one a lot.

Thank you CanConPhilly for this
16 oz can, dated 2/13/18, poured into a teku

A- A hazy golden orange with a two finger white head.

S- Citrus, grapefruit rinds, tropical fruits, some mango, pine/resin, definitely getting some strong alcohol.

T- Tropical fruits, mango, citrus, some grapefruit rinds, piney, a little dank, touch of malt sweetness.

M- Smooth, full body, extremely creamy.

O- One the most full bodied IPAs I’ve ever tried and I loved! Smells boozy at first, but the 10% ABV is well hind.
