Boozy pineapple taste. Sweet. Really fizzy. The aroma is green beans and and cucumber with a hint of Saison yeast. Hot with alcohol. The sweetness gives way to a spicy, scratchy bitter funk.

It tastes really strong, definitely a malt liquor-- oh, was it supposed to be an IPA? Last thing on my mind, sipping it. This is sort of interesting but it's so unbalanced. Put it in a 40 oz jug and give it the right name-- Boozy Baby Mama. From the 650 ml bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

9.2% ABV, 76 ibu, 650ml bottle.
A - light orange with thin head, yeast floating, cloudy.
S - crispy, refreshing lemon peel, grapefruit, orange, berries, Pilsner malt sweetness. lager-y smell, canned pineapple water sweetness.
T - well carbonation. medium (big smooth sticky) body. orange juice taste, malty, syrupy, grassy hops, bitterness comes at the end n lingering. there's kinda barrel aged sweetness stick on the tongue, really good!
O - it's a really good beer, more than I expected! ABV hide very well, yet u got the heat down to ur throat. yes, it tastes like Belgium triple with loads of hops, and tastes like tropical juice as well! you'd probably be amazed how gooseberry Nelson Sauvin hops (NZ) can do. Recommended & a must try!

Sunshine with barely any froth. 3.5
Clingy Citra oil, lemon plus a bit of sugar - but that’s it, and dim. 3.75
Sugar cookie dough, whack of rubbery phenols, lemon meringue, fresh hop leaf, and some white grape spice. 3.5
Key lime finish and clingy linger.
Medium, chewy, oily. 3.75

Nose is pretty simple. Body sits heavy, phenols are large, and the Nelson doesn’t really show. Eases as it opens, but a bit of work even if it is interesting. 3.75

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, pine. Taste is minty, caramel malts, pineapple, light alcohol. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall an interesting and good quality beer.

Pours a strikingly clear, light gold body with decent lacing. Pine cones and caramel sweetness in the flavor. Kind of an odd duck as i don't see the "white IPA" aspect of it but it was decent enough.

A: hazy pale gold body under a few fingers of ivory foam that left laces down the glass

S: lots of pale fruit and citrus, strong sugary aromas with edges of something floral and herbal

T: big sweet citrus of lemon and what I guess is gooseberry - very juicy and sweet

M: smooth and somewhat lush, medium weight, moderate carbonation

O: hard to evaluate if this is what they were going for - tastes almost like a sugary hefeweizen with lots of fruit, packing a high abv punch - not as bitter as I would have liked, but decent - perhaps the wheat base is not to my liking when I'm thinking Citra and Nelson-hopped DIPA?
