Notes: It’s almost end of winter, daylight savings is coming, and you’ve been dying for that vacation getaway... Welll, hold tight to your tiny umbrellas people, we’re dropping this tropical getaway in a can!

This sour DIPA will get you there at 8.2% abv, with nothing but straight Mai Tai/Scorpion Bowl, “I’ll sleep it off at lunch break” flavors. Fruit punch for days from the MASSIVE amounts of mango, passionfruit, and tangerine, and after that we rested it on HEAPS and HEAPS of toasted coconut! (and an eeeentsy weeeensty bit of vanilla to round it out). All in all this thing is the furthest thing from beer and the closest thing to your friends making fun of you for your life choices all wrapped up in one! Contains lactose.

Really like the can, nice colors and it fits the vibe of a super tropical creamy milkshake IPA.
There is some lactose here for the sweetness, which just smooths out any hint of this being a DIPA.
This is usually not my favorite type of IPA (lactose and fruit additions), but I can see getting used to it :)
Tropical is an understatement, a Hawaiian luau in each sip.
I am glad i only had one can, this is the kind that goes down too smooth and just too tasty for its own good.

From a one pit can dated 03/02/20. Sampled on April 7, 2020.

It looks like a pulpy orange juice or maybe a hazy IPA with its milky, murky yellow-orange tone. Opaque.

The aroma emits vibrant tropical fruit sensations such as pineapple, mango, and passionfruit, Underneath that I get a slight toasted bread crust note.

Smooth, light to medium mouthfeel.

The taste does have a tar character to it but that is almost low profile compared to the overwhelming tropical fruit sensations. Kind of extreme but maybe that's what they were going for.

This one is really interesting and tasty. Poured into a 16 oz Nordic pint glass canned on 3/2/20. Pours a hazy dark yellow with a finger sticky white head that leaves thin wall of lace with excellent retention. 4.5

Smell is coconut, pineapple, tangerine, vanilla, mango, papaya, and some apricot really nice and different. 4.5

Taste follows a tad more aggressive mango, papaya, tangerine upfront with pineapple, coconut, vanilla, and apricot in the rather balanced finish. 4.5

Mouthfeel is bigger than average, sticky not dry, kind of gentle carbonation, and at 8.2% ABV really approachable. 4.5

Overall this more of a milkshake NEDIPA than sour for me, but you definitely get a hit of sour, but I feel the vanilla and lactose make this beer have less of a bite. Really glad I grabbed this one. I love a different and slightly odd beer sometimes and this hits all the correct notes for me. 4.5

16oz. can served in my Spiegelau tulip. Pours a dull, murky orange with a loose, quarter inch, off-white head that quickly dissipates. Nose notes of mandarin orange, vanilla and tropical fruits. Taste is suggestive of a soured Orange Julius muddled with coconut water and hints of lactose. Flavor profile comes off a bit dull. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (closer to light) with a carbonation shy of lively and a residual acidic burn that lingers at the back of the throat between quaffs. Overall, interesting and pretty much as described; however, not really my thing.
