Canned on 7/27/18

Pour offers a semi-hazy dirty orange with a soft but frothy finger of off-white foam.

Big aromas of guava and papaya strike first, followed by some caramelized peach, honeydew melon, mango, light booziness and grape peel; light earthy hops come in to round things out.

Tastes of dank citrus bolstered with raw white grape, fruity acidity, herbal pine; earthy mint, bubble gum, and tree bark make for a soft, naturally sweet the finish.

The Nelson-influenced white wine effects impart a nice drying element to the mouthfeel making a relatively big brew feeling crisp and clean while never allowing the flavor to depart.Moderately carbed, this one stays smooth while maintaining a presence; excellent for a DIPA.

A big DIPA playing strongly to some nice West Coast elements, and one that goes down like a session with great variation in flavors both approachable and nuanced. Quite boozy, but it wouldn't take much to be compelled to drink a few of these consecutively; just a well-rounded, bold, and upper-tier DIPA.

A: Slightly hazy golden yellow with 1-2 finger white head. Decent retention and moderate lacing.

S: Pineapple, mango, peach, and apricot. Very pleasant fruit aromas.

T: Ripe peaches, pineapple. mango, white grapes, and apricots. A touch of piney bitterness.

M: Medium body with soft carbonation that leaves a silky mouthfeel. Finishes a little dry.

O: Excellent DIPA that brings the Nelson hops up front and center. Very well done!

Appearance - Pours murky deep golden color with soapy white head that looks like it will never go away. Sticky lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Smells of honeydew melon, grapes, light hop/pine, a little bit of sweet peach and mango.

Taste - The Nelson hops really stands out, mango and peach shine through as well. Great balance of sweet fruit and a hint of bitterness.

Feel - Medium bodied soft carbonation with just a hint of dryness at the end. A touch of heat from the alcohol at the very end.

Overall - great aroma wonderful fruit/hop flavors the alcohol is very well hidden.

This one pours a partially hazy dark orange, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

This smells like a stanky Nelson bomb- Nelson hops always give me that beautiful white grape thing, but also an overripe funky fruit thing. This beer is no different. I also get peach and grapefruit on the nose.

This is my first beer from these guys, and it's a fun one. It's all Nelson, so it's got a pretty wild hop character- white grapes, dirty earthy flavors, grassiness, peach, grapefruit, and melon. There's basically no malt character. You'd have no idea that it's a DIPA- it's not boozy in the slightest. It's hidden so well.

This is medium bodied, fairly crisp for the style, with a soft level of carbonation.

Beer'd seems to be yet another brewery jumping into the 16 oz canned hop game. Fortunately, unlike a lot of breweries, they seem to have nailed it.

Sampling a freshly filled growler poured into my snifter at cellar temp. I picked up the growler at the brewery yesterday.
The beer pours into my glass a bright clear golden color with a fluffy bleached white head of 3 cm foaming up. The foam fades gradually to a sturdy surface layer and leaves tight lattice on my glass after each sip.
The aroma is a mix of white grapes and some floral notes showcasing the hops. I also do get a bit of caramel and some honey too. A nice mix on the nose.
First sip of the beer reveals a very fine tingly carbonation with an average body and fairly slick texture. Very drinkable physical traits.
Flavor is kind of sweet with white grape and honeydew notes up front and then a bit of caramel that very quickly gives way to a bit of pithy rind that gives a lingering bite on the finish. I also have a dry palate after the swallow.
I dont get any booziness which is impressive for a 9.2% brew.
This beer drinks dangerously easy for its size and is very interesting and complex without being over the top intense.
glad to have tried this great beer from Stonington. Definitely worth a purchase if you visit Beer'd.

I'm not usually a fan of DIPAs, but this one isn't over-powering like some.

Can poured into a teku

CLEAR amber with active streams of carbonation. Two finger billowy white foam cap settles to a solid white layer. Few lacings

Fragrant on the pour. Aroma of melon, citrus rind, white grapes and a. Whiff of pine

Taste of tangerine, citrus rind, melon hops over a nice malt backbone

Smooth, dry has a gentle hop nibble that lingers. Alcohol is well hidden

Good beer
