Hazy golden, big fluffy white head, and great lacing. Aromas are soft and alcoholic. Notes of dry oatmeal, pine, hop resin and alcohol heat. Medium, creamy and lightly dry. Just an average DIPA, not their best stuff.

Smell: Grapefruit. Melon. Mango. Orange peels. Grass. Wheat bread crust.

Taste: Grapefruit. Melon. Grass. Marmalade. Caramel. Soggy grains.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Feel: Medium-light bodied. Creamy. Slightly oily. Sticky. Slight booze.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Overall: A very dangerously smooth drinking "NE-inspired" IPA. Other than finishing a tad bit sweet and not really being all that "juicy," it doesn't stray far from being both a faithful imitation of Other Half's neighbors to the North and yet another well-executed iteration of their signature "Diamonds" series. The oats do add an interesting dimension in terms of the mouthfeel but doesn't impact the experience too much overall.

Pours a golden yellow with a amber tint to it. Semi hazy with a huge billowy white head. The nose is of fresh ripe tropical fruits, mango and melon. Taste is of ripe mango, honeydew and light stone fruit. A rather large alcohol taste on the palate with this one. Boozy and somewhat harsh on the backend. Minimal malt presence altho light sticky malt can be found. As the beer warms the alcohol comes out even more. A rich creamy mouthfeel that has a semi dry finish. Pros: the tropical nose and creamy mouthfeel. Cons: boozy that causes this beer to feel somewhat harsh at points. Cheers
