Notes: Developing a new social handle can be a pretty daunting task. Balance between target audience appeal and originality is of the upmost importance. Much like a freshly minted user name, we think we've struck the right balance between the in your face juicy hop character of Idaho 7 and the pillow soft mouthfeel for this double dry hopped New England Style IPA. Drink fresh and enjoy!

Had this on tap and thought it was spectacular. Amazing aromas of citrus and beautiful color. Tasted delicious, clean and fresh and slightly fruity. Bought some cans, and they were nearly as delicious.

A- Tallboy pours into a tall, narrow chalice with a lightly hazed deep golden hue and a massive head. The cap rockets up to three fingers high and stays there for quite some time, great retention. Large sheets of lacing form with each sip.

S- The aroma boasts hops which is a surprise to absolutely no one. There is a hint of tropical fruit here but it seems Beer'd has captured a lot more of the floral, herbal and piney character that Idaho 7 can bring to the mix as the juicy fruits just come off as secondary in the overall balance of the aroma. Dank skunky weed eventually comes out with hints of mango, melon, mint and bubble gum as well.

T- Much like the aroma the flavor profile is all about the hops and again it has bitter floral and herbal notes leading the way with the fruity stuff secondary to it. A touch of mango, bubble gum, grapefruit, pineapple and tangerine secondary to the aforementioned. On the dry side with a hint of booze and a sharp bitterness. Overall this one is dry and malts are clean.

MF- The mouthfeel is great. Puffy and soft with a certain creaminess and frothy texture nucleated by the high level of bubbles. Ends with a sharp citrusy bitterness despite there not being all that much citrus flavor. Really nice on the palate.

Not the NE DIPA everyone is looking for but still a nice floral and herbal beer with a great mouthfeel.

16 oz can into IPA glass.
Look is fairly clear golden yellow. Smell is dank tropical fruit. Taste is sweet citrus with a grapefruit ending. Feel is fairly light. Overall a very nice IPA that could be a problem because it is a very easy drink. Would get again.

Poured from a can.

Looks nice, golden, and clear with a light white head.

Smells of topical fruits with a hint of biscuit.

Light sweet fruit flavors with a hint of syrup and citrus.

leaves a nice thin coating on the tongue that fades and leaves sweet tropical fruit notes.

16oz can. Pours a pale brownish orange with over an inch of creamy white head. Lots of lacing. Citrus hop aroma of grapefruit, lemon, lime and some strawberry cream candy. The taste is the strawberry cream followed up by some lemon and lime. Some orange peel and floral hops as well. Lime and strawberry cream finish. Creamy with lots of carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. A bit boozey. Worth seeking out.
