Notes: The strong “herbal” aroma sends you back to freshmen year catching a ride to school in your weird burnout neighbor’s ____(insert your fav. El Camino, IROC, Firebird) whilst being bombarded by the sounds of Van Halen (DLR era, none of that Sammy Hagar synthy love song bull). DANKSOME! The flavor profile is full-on drippingly ripe tropical fruits: Mango, guava, papaya, and citrus. Juicy, refreshing, and deceptive. We would highly recommend wearing a helmet & supportive cup when mounting the Dragonsaddle.

It was fine. I don’t get the hype. There are plenty of better IPAs, both local and statewide.

Canned on date 9/30/2021. Poured into etched nucleation pint glass. Pours a turbid yellow with fine dank to add more flavor.

Solid triple IPA. 11.5% booze well hidden in this finely crafted nectar. Highly recommended this NE triple.

pungent flavors of sharp pineapple, pulpy and slightly acidic orange juice, some minty and pine character, a hint of doughy sweetness and a mélange of smooth fruity flavors. however as it warms I do get this sort of unpleasant chalky character on the back end that has a bit of a peppery spice to it. good flavor but just a bit rough around the edges.

Canned on 9/30/20; consumed on 10/18/20

Pours a turbid mango-gold body topped with a rounded, fluffy two and a half fingers of white foam; excellent head retention leaves a mound of cap, a slight, frothy collar, and a moderate spread of soapy, spotty lacing around the walls of the glass.

Aroma shows traces of resin as it opens, withholding overripe peach, papaya, hints of bready malt, and guava briefly as the bouquet develops; creamier tones of mango build, further accentuating guava, tangerine zest, and slight suggestions of peach and pink grapefruit over time; a lush, tropical bouquet with defined, hoppy edges.

Taste offers lime sherbet upfront, a semi-tart introduction to what is eventually a touch piney over the mid-palate and effectively accented with peppery, pithy citrus zest; pineapple, bay leaf, and apricot zest show depth into the back end as overripe mango and sweet bready malts shine into the finish.

Mouthfeel brings a medium body alongside a mild carbonation deferring to a significant creamy texture dominant into the mid-palate, where a prickly resin into the back end glides toward an increasingly slick, stiff, yet easy finish.

A great entry into the NETIPA category, perpetuating in equal parts the tempered abrasion matched by the burly profile which can be found in this (sub-) style; a pointed alcohol presence, abundance of flavor, and creamy, weighted texture to tie it all together; spectacularly consumable 11.5% ABV.
