L - pours a gentle pineapple haze for days. Milky whiteness and orangey peach.

S - initial aroma is zesty and oniony. Biting, but then the creamsicle rushes in. Orange, vanilla, coriander. Smells like Heist with that hint of witty orange.

T - Mandarin orange cups. Has a very soft, peachy, fruit salady flavor, complete with that sweet, delicious cream cheese sauce. Bubblegum and creeping, peppery zest come in at the end to keep the sweetness at bay. Nicely balanced and executed.

F - never quite experienced this in a beer. The mouthfeel is the very definition of supple. Peach fuzz draping across my lips. Taught, creamy, and bursting at the seams.

O - the general tone of Strange Clouds is... tender. Soft, warm flavors with just the right amount of bite. Would love to see a DIPA version of this.

Crowler from 12/27/17.

Hazy translucent tannish gold in good light. Strong two fingers of head on a normal pour lasts several minutes. Continuous ring and continental blanket remain. Curtainy lacing. No floaters.
Sour pineapple, apricot yeasty aroma. Slight pine, floral scents.
Bitter citrus, grapefruit pith, guava, yuzu. Tropical notes intensify as it warms.
Good consistent carbonation. Dry bitterness on the front. Flavors open up with a bit of sweetness at the end.
Bracing shot of Hop bitterness followed by multiple fruit flavors. Very tasty and unique version of the Not From Concentrate series.
