Yep. This one is just perfectly fine. It’s not big and verbose like King Kong reading Shakespeare, and it’s also not under done like your good friend who can’t cook a steak for the life of him. Curiosity Ninety Six is pretty much Ninety Six to Raul. Like, 1996. 6th grade and stuff. Learning stuff on the inside, and playing ball wall on the outside. Nothing special. No special cutie in Raul’s life. No big or bad revelations. Just a “here we are” year. And this beer is just like that. Straight up chilling. And Raul is fine with that.

Poured into a tulip. Pours a darker muddy orange with two to three fingers of thick lasting head and medium lacing. Smell is all fruit. This sure smells like a juice bomb with mango and other fruits coming through on the nose. Taste is pleasantly smooth and reflective of the fruits that came through on the nose. Nice full mouthfeel, and a pleasant lingering taste. Overall this is better than I expected. TH says that this reminds them of Juice Machine and I would have to agree.

16oz. can served in a tulip. Pours a dull orange with the color and clarity of orange juice and a rocky, half inch, bright white head embedded with pinpricks and craters. Great nose - pure juice with a hint of pith. Taste consistent with nose with an herbal hit at the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a consistent carbonation. Overall, not a standout for the style but really quite drinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Canned on 5/9/20, consumed on 5/13/20.

A: Poured from the can into a tulip glass. Body is juicy/hazy dark golden with a half-finger of whitish head on top. Lots of lace on the glass.

S: Wow - really nice nose, which jumps from the glass. Tropical fruit (mango, pineapple) and citrus (orange peel and grapefruit) and soft, ripe apricot all come to mind.

T: Pretty much follows the nose, with tropical fruit (mango, papaya, underripe cantaloupe, pineapple), citrus (think clementines, lemons and grapefruit peel), apricot and ripe peaches. Finishes with a touch of spice from the alcohol, a lingering, dry bitterness, and the heat from the ABV is felt in the belly. Really nice overall flavor profile; I'm curious as all hell about the hops in this one.

M: It's got that wonderful, pillowy-soft TreeHouse feel to it. Juicy. Medium in heft. Carbonation practically non-existent.

O: An excellent NEDIPA. It's stupid how good this beer is.
