look: 1 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Look: It looks like a Naked Juice. To identify it as cloudy is an understatement.

Smell: Odd

Taste:Oddly sour with an bad aftertaste. Nothing like any DIPA I have ever before.

Feel: Like drinking a Naked Juice.

Overall: As a part time home-brewer, I would have been totally embarrassed to bottle/can this and share it with friends. I have enjoyed many 18th brews, but this one should have never seen distribution.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: murky golden goodness with 1-1/2 fingers of opaque white head.

Smell: some earthy hops, a little booze, maybe a little Brett-like aroma.

Taste: some hops up front, then the yeast (Brett?) kicks in. Before it can develop, a salty flavor hits the back of the throat.

Fell: very light,given the ABV, and VERY dry.

Overall: the first beverage I've had from 18th Street that wasn't a home run. This had a little bit of an IPA mixed with a wit mixed with a saison mixed with a gose. It's not undrinkable but it's ..... confusing.

Does not taste or feel like a DIPA....more like a juicy saison, not hop profile. My least favorite offering from 18th Street by far.

I feel like this beer suffers from being called an IPA. It's a pretty delicious beer but smells and tastes kind of like a hoppy saison. Expectations work against it. Looks beautiful, laces pretty well, there's a distictly yeasty smell and taste, the hops are present but not aggressive and don't seem to be any of the citrusy / piney / tropical american varieties. Finishes pretty crisp and smooth for the abv.

Is it a saison or an IPA??? Almost orange juice like look, funky saison/farmhouse smell. It was odd and something I could take in small doses. If it was a little more hoppy w the saison funkiness it might be more my speed
