Notes: All along we had nothing to fear. Just the pale grim unwinding of our minds. Then the sun rose and fell. The scabs dissolved into scars. The scourge persisted only as etchings on our thoughts. And we awoke as mere mortals once again. Made with Oats and a bit of lactose. Whirlpooled with Incognito. Double dry-hopped with Citra, Sabro and Vic Secret.

Picked up a 16 oz single from the Blue Door Bottleshop 6-28-21 for $5.50. Canned 08JUN2021; consumed 8-9-21.

Beer poured a murky light orange with a small head that dissipated quickly.

Nose is very nice, of tropical, citrus, and floral hops.

Taste follows the nose with a medium pale malt base infused with an oat addition that allows for the orange, gooseberry, and mango to display very nicely. Finishes with a touch of pine and rind bitterness; 7/10 on my scale.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and smooth.

Overall a very nice NEIPA!

Look: It pours milky yellow with a white head. head retention is good.

Smell: It has citrus aromas with grapefruit and some resinous elements. There is a slight nut like note in the background with a touch of sweetness.

Taste: It has strong citrus flavors with grapefruit and some resinous elements. The nuts are a bit strong in the flavor. It starts a bit bitter but finishes sweet. There are some orange flavors in the finish.

Feel: It has a medium full body with some alcohol warming.

Overall, there are some strong citrus flavors with a bit of resin. The bitter start and sweet finish enhances the drinkability.

On tap, pint serving.

Milky creamsicle mixed with the oats. Slim white cap, some wisps and spots of lacing.

Tropical and stone fruits in the aroma. Some citrus, too. Mint chocolate.

Here come the oats. Dry sawdust mixed with fruit juices and lactose.

Medium bodied and creamy, not juicy or sweet. Bone dry finish.

As lactose brews go, pretty good. Hop blend tames the lactose for a good drinking hazed IPA.

A: Pours a milky murky pale to medium golden orange in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate bright yellow + bright orange + peach + apricot colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy sudsy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized patch of medium thick film covering just shy of 50% of the surface of the beer surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Slightly heavier than moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy citrus/orange + tropical/mango + stone fruit/nectarine + herbal + pine hops over the top of moderate aromas of biscuit + pale + oat malts with moderate amounts of lactose sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of biscuit + pale + oat malts with moderate amounts of lactose sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy citrus/orange + tropical/mango + stone fruit/nectarine + herbal + pine hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving moderate lingering citrus + herbal hop flavors.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of creamy soft/fluffiness mid-body with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a very pleasantly creamy soft/fluffy mouthfeel. Refreshing and enjoyable with great citrus, stone fruit, and herbal/pine hop flavors + aromas. Could easily have a couple of these.

Hazy dull orange appearance. Strong aromas of orange with earthy, herbal notes. Flavor generally matches. Not an absolute juice bomb, nor is it too hoppy and bitter. Oats seem to give it a smoother, mellower feel. Finish lingers for quite a while.

Canned 12/28/20; drank 1/10/21 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dull orange/yellow appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice white head; nice lace.

Orange citrus, dry grass & faint peanut butter notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Orange citrus & faint peanut butter flavors; dry grass bite on the finish.

A predictably strong IPA from Burial, but not among their absolute best.
