Notes: A blade for many a pocket, this IPA displays malt in its most elemental form: Pilsner, Oats, and locally grown and malted rye. Mosaic, El Dorado, and Galaxy hops present a sharp, citrus punch while the addition of Simcoe to the dry hop adds a final piney complexity to this easy sipping, hazy IPA.

It may be unfair for me to rate this beer from Burial. I picked it up because I really enjoy most of what I get from Burial. I liked the lower ABV for an IPA as the ever 7% ABV beers are not my cup of tea. My impression of this beer is that it comes across as a hazy IPA and I have found that this style does not appeal to me. The appearance is cloudy with a nice head and lacing on the drink down. The aroma is a bit floral and the taste is mildly citrus. Mouthfeel is medium. I will finish the mixer but I won't be repeating it. If you are a fan of NEIPAs you will probably like this quite a bit more than I did.

12oz canned 03 APR 2020. Opened 5-10-20.
1 finger white head with good retention. Opaque, orange-gold IPA.
The head settles in at a thick, solid cap and leaves early lacing behind and a plethora of lace rings/patterns as the beer disappears.
Orange, grapefruit, pineapple, pine.
Some raw yeast aroma under the hop aromas.
Grapefruit rind, pine, and bright lemon. Zesty flavors. Getting lots of melon on can 5 and 6, very tasty.
Enough of a malt base to pick up some dough and cream flavors deep under the hops.
Medium to full body with a soft mouthfeel. Low bitterness and a medium length zesty citrus hop drenched dry finish.
High drinkability and at 6% close to sessionable.
Very Good.

Canned 4/21/20; drank 5/5/20 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque yellow/orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a big off-whitehead; nice lace.

Orange peel, lemon, dry wheat & faint table sugar notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Lemon & orange peel flavors up front; dry wheat & faint table sugar notes on the finish.

Balanced & enjoyable, but not a show-stopper. I'd have another...

Hazy orange with a tall off-white foam settling to a thin collar with thicker peaks leaving spongy lace.

This is nelsony of peppery cracker with a mild dankness. More classic notes of biscuit and pine bark also mix with orange rind and lemon curd.

The medium round body has a soft then crisp carbonation finishing dry.

Reviewed from (very) long-standing notes. Purchased at Habersham Beverages (in Savannah, GA) on 6/13/17. Date on the can was difficult to read - possibly canned 4/23/17. Poured from the 12 oz. can into an El Catador Barrel-Aged glass. Consumed 9/22/17.

A: A moderately hazy nice gold, with a big two-finger fluffy white head with great retention. Average visible carbonation.

S: Nice here – tropical fruits, melon, cracker malts. Citrus (tangerine) and rind, mild dank. Not really anything different than a lot of other IPAs, but quite appealing.

T: Melon, dank, and tropical fruit hops. Citrus rind, minty, and sweet herbal as well. Light cracker malts with either a wheat or oat fullness. More melon and dank and herbal hops with a fair amount of bitterness in the hang.

M: A light body but not at all watery - a crisp West Coast IPA mouthfeel and malt bill. Average alcohol presence and a good amount of carbonation sensation.

O: Perhaps not my first choice of hop profile, but especially for being five months post-canning (oops), this is bright and flavorful and clean with no caramel flavor, nor any indication that the age has affected it at all. It may not be my personal preference hop-wise, but really well done.

On tap
L: hazy bright yellow in color. Little head formation on tap, but tons of residual lacing. A fantastic looking beer.
S: nice. Grassy hop profile, aromas of flaked oars and citrus. Simple and appealing.
T: follows the nose. Bright citrus up front. Flakes oat flavor provides foundation.
F: medium in body and light in weight. Light feel, easy and smooth.
O: super enjoyable. I could drink this daily. I am very grateful to try this. Cheers!
