4.15/5  rDev +3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a dull darker hazy pineapple color with a thumb sized white head that laces well.

Aroma is juicy tropical fruits pink grapefruit, pineapple, mango and tangerine dominate a sweet malt base a super fruity treat with only a light hoppiness bitterness in the nose.

Taste is better then the nose loads of fruit as mentioned above on a sweet malt base. But the finish does have a little dankness to it that wasn't in the nose. At least its enough to keep an old hop head happy as too many fruity brews have no bite to them.

Mouthfeel is medium with smooth carbonation that seems to go well with Burial beers.

Overall a good fruity treat with just enough bite to make it fun.

4.04/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a can (28Jul2020) into a pint glass

L: pours a slightly darker orange yellow, like there’s some light shade of brown mixed in or something (I’m not a color guy). Moderately thick white head, fading after a couple minutes leaving some chunky lacing on the glass. Nice lacing as I sip as well

S: aromatic tropical bomb, good amount as I opened the can and a burst of it as soon as I started pouring. Solidly overripe tropical nose - mango, pineapple, passionfruit, papaya. Some citrus there as well, orange clementine grapefruit. Peach. Sweet and dank overall, a slight bit of bitterness but not much

T: follows the nose well, dank and overripe tropical fruit own the start of the swallow. Passionfruit and papaya lead with pineapple and mango quickly following. Nice middle bitterness, leading to a medium-long finish. Find the finish astringent, shame given the start of the swallow and especially the nose. Not bad by any means, imagine it’s hop material related (post -review: saw peanut butter mentioned in another review - can see that, like as a descriptor)

F: medium body, medium carbonation, very full and smooth, incredibly easy to drink but that astringent finish slightly off-putting

O: amazing nose firing on all cylinders, slight letdown on the taste that I figure is due (at least somewhat) to hop burn. Great IPA, ding it somewhat for that finish

2 wk old can courtesy of BellsRinger.
L: hazy dark mango with fluffy creamy white head.
S: stonefruit
T: mainly same as smell. Stonefruit and tropical fruit. Not too overwhelmingly sweet but no bitterness involved.
F: juicy.
Overall: Nice hazy ipa. Generally prefer some bitterness to balance, but this wasn’t grotesquely sweet so it worked.

Canned 7/28/20; drank 8/7/20 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dull orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice off-white head; strong, frothy lace.

Peach, cream & mild peanut butter notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Peach & faint dry grass flavors up front; cream & faint peanut butter notes on the finish.

Not as good as it's sister beer, Anatomical Transmutation, but still well above average. Another nice IPA from Burial .
