Not bad, not amazing. It's pretty good with a mild bitterness. Not nearly as fruity as expected with the name "Starburst" (I guess I associated it with the fruity candy.) Nice light malt flavor with typical IPA hops giving it a citrus forward flavor.

I would buy it again if there was nothing interesting but wasn't a standout. Higher ABV than expected.

From 12oz can with CO date of 03/02. Pours a hazed golden wheat color with a 0ne plus finger white head. Smell was grapefruit pine and berries. Taste has grapefruit ,oranges berries and pine resin. Mouth feel is sharp and haoppy with lingering pine bitterness , A WCIPA that was tasty.

Taster at brewery. Kind of subdued, malty hoppy mix. Medium golden, oily and slick. Nothing really stands out here. Could almost passed for a pale except for the ABV.

4.09/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Look: Orange in color and decently murky in the glass with a fast-growing head that pillows up and holds well before receding and leaving sticky lacing behind
Aroma: Cara cara oranges, grapefruit, pine, passionfruit, strawberries, sweet rose, blueberries, sweet malt, and Fruit Loops cereal
Taste: Tropical and citrus fruit team up for the first punch and almost immediately following that, a huge wave of pine crashes in. Some berry notes pop up here and there and bready malt is present throughout before closing with resinous conifer notes and a big hop bite
Mouthfeel: Full, a little slick, medium-high carbonation, and a medium strength dryness on the finish
Overall: This stuff is fantastic. I love these folks’ portfolio and this one is a staple in the beer fridge rotation year-round and it’s easy to taste why while also slowing down to review it. A well-made WCIPA – almost DIPA ABV territory – with great pine, citrus, tropical fruit, and floral notes, a great body, and good bitterness and dryness. Recommended

Very prickly. Get it as a taster just to experience what a bright IPA tastes like. But this would be a lot even in a tulip. Better to save room for something better.

Meringuey, tiny bubbled, snow white, thick head. Nearly clear, light golden orange color. Slight tropical fruit aroma. Slightly sharp citrus peel (tangerine), primary flavor with the slightest hint of malt. Citrus peel oil finish.

This is a great IPA with minimal gut heaviness.

The pour is more watery than thick and the head populates a beautiful white foam.

Initial smells brought thoughts of pineapple and citrus.

As you drink the initial flavor hits with a bang of citrus pineapple (as the smell suggests) but with a wonderful mosaic hop finish with enough bite to give you a taste of the NW but a balance that leaves you wanting more.

The " weight" of tge beer on the stomach is minimal, the yeasts are all but spent and its not as thick as other heavier malted IPAs.

Bottom line, this is a delicious beer with a fantastic pineapple citrus but comes through with some wonderful hops. Not too heavy at all and the carbonation leaves you satisfied but not bloated.

I will buy this beer again and I highly recommend it if you love a great Pacific NW IPA buy this.

Drank out of a snifter glass from a can dated 9/21/2020. Has a smidgen of haze to the look, smells of dank hops and sweet fruit, tastes bitterly hoppy which I enjoy, backed by a strong fruit sweetness to even the flavor, and feels incredibly smooth on the tongue. Amazingly easy to crush these. Love it!
