Azacca single hopped dipa. Lots of grapefruit, candied grapefruit peel, ripe mango, orange zest and a touch of pine. Large cracker malt. Starts out sweet but ends up semi dry and a bit boozy. Eh. Pretty good.

16 oz. can.
Canned 12/17/17.
Printed on can's bottom: "Livin in a gangstas paradise."
Moderate pour yields a 1/2 inch white head over a bright amber body with some lacing. Nose of slight citrus, slight tropical fruit as it warms, and even slighter grass and pine. Taste of tropical fruit, citrus, and a pine bitterness. Nice feel and overall, an interesting DIPA and glad for the opportunity. Cheers!

Served on tap in a chalice at Yarde Tavern in Enfield, and very glad to have had it. I did not think anywhere near us would have anything by Beer'd.

This was a nice yellow hue with a slight haze, but almost no head due to the way they had poured it. Since I was paying and it was only 12 ounces, I wanted my full pour.

Aroma was very fruity, mostly apples and grapefruit. The citrus dominated. Not much breadiness under the hops.

Taste followed the smell... quick apples, followed by grapefruit and light hop resins.

Mouthfeel was remarkably light and smooth for the ABV. The bitterness also did not linger for very long. It went down deceptively easily.

Overall a solid, very good double IPA, served with good food and good company in a fine establishment. Yum.

It's OK, but not something I'd go out of my way to get. Soft bitterness quickly gives way to a mild-tasting malty body. A DIPA, but you'd never know it.

Hazy, dark gold color. Lasting but small head. Good streaking lace.

Floral hop aroma with a bit raw, pale malt on the side.

There's a lavender taste to this beer. This lingers throughout the tasting. The malt leans dry but the finish is all bittering hop, bringing a peppery finish and lingering aftertaste. High carbonation which over compensates the moderately higher body. Darker Overall taste than the color suggests.

Orange peel, mango, biscuit sweetness, honey, onto a slightly astringent and piney aftertaste. A smooth medium mouthfeel makes the beer seem like it drinks under its hefty 9.3% ABV.

The high abv gives this some bite. The scent and taste are extraordinarily tropical. Bitter on the backside and perfect carbonation. Highly recommend! Don't pass on this one. Great job Beer'd!
