Tall can, procured via trade, new brewery to me...10/19/17, so about two weeks in the can, the sweet spot for some beers of this type, or so I am told...

The pour is medium clouded, light tangerine, lasting khaki cap, leaves some fine strands of lacing.

Pungent tropical fruit nose, w/ mango, some melon, lime, honey and some resiny hop notes in the finish.

This is worthy DDH DIPA, more mango, pineapple and fruity goodness, but this is less over the top with fruit then others, more resin/pine hop notes, providing complexity and intrigue...very nicely crafted and enjoyable brew.

Not a big fan of very haizy IPA. Flavor is good but nothing spectacular. Why don't they give you more info on what's in the can besides 16 oz and Double Dry Hopped Double IPA. What does that mean? What hops?

16oz can dated 10/19/17; bought and drank today, 10/27/17, in an IPA glass.

Bright creamy yellow-orange color, heavily hazed. More than 2F of white foam cap the brew. After a slow fade there are spot and web lacing remains.

A burst of fruit hops, tropical and citrus; pineapple, mango, and lemon. Then there's the dank. As the glass empties, the aroma of alcohol surfaces.

Lots of juicy tropical fruit. The mango is out front. More fruit and a touch of malt.

Decently carbonated, some alcohol sweetness, juicy and slightly bitter hops. Light malty base and sneaky alcohol.

The last 4-pak in the joint. Thanks!

Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over a hazy, light golden body. Nose of tropical fruit, citrus, mango, pineapple, and slight pine. Taste mirrors nose exactly with a strong bitter pine finish. Good feel and overall, not bad for a juice bomb. Cheers!

Now my review
LOOK:
Now yellow, but definite orange haze, like orange juice. But its not orange juice, its beer.
SMELL:
First smell is mango on the nose, with a bit of pineapple citrus after the mango aroma, with the hop presence completeing the circle of smelling goodness.
FEEL: that is always Private, you all got it? Good!
TASTE:
OK, here is where its at.... a juice bomb recipie from bolero.
You get the mango cirrus first, then the pineapple piney on the back end with the hop presence you want from a juicy IPA.
Here is the thing;
The 8.1 is cleverly disguised, for a FRESH Halloween 2017 beer the trick or treat is the 8.1 hitting you later. BOO ! (LoL!)
OVERALL:
First “Drink Fresh” YES Absolutely!
A FRESH Local DIPA right before Halloween weekend? Sure.
Because it goes down nicely ice cold, that is the “Treat”. The “Trick” is its 8.1 so it scares you later.
Great late October Offering from Bolero Snort.

And thats my review
(Halloween themed review too over the top?)
No not in my opinion.
ENJOY and Drink Local.
