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.

The flavor wasn't bad on this but it just seemed so flat to me. Like it needed a lot more carbonation.

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.
