Picked this beer up a while ago at Other Half, finally getting around to it today. I wasn't a huge fan of this when I first saw that it was being released but as I had more of it, it warmed up on me a bit. The hop profile was quite nice but there was just too much of vegetable presence for this to truly rank as one of their better offerings!

The date on the bottom of the can was 3/23 (yes, I know I'm behind!) with "POPPA TWIST" written above it. Not a bad pour to it for being that old as the beer was quite pleasing to look at as it poured a deep grapefruit with plenty of soapy head to top it off. Quite turbid, there was plenty of cloudiness to this though it wasn't quite so dank as a IPA from Other Half tended to be. The nose was faint citrus, bitter and floral hops, and was there some cabbage in there as well? A sweet, soapy, and pithy mouthfeel backed this up as this had to be one of the softest beers that I've had in quite some time. A bit of sauerkraut and onion-like spice made this interesting the but low carbonation and light mouthfeel kept this easygoing from start to finish.

This felt like it had no alcohol in it whatsoever as it went down like a fine juice. Along with the other offerings released with this, this was one of those brews that took a while to figure out and was more nuanced than I could have imagined. It's fun and worthy of the name and label, once you get over the initial reaction to them! I hope this comes out again soon...

Hazy golden, big white head and nice lacing. Aromas of citrus, light stone fruits and hop dank. Notes of grapefruit, sweet tangerine, dank, lightly herbaceous and pithy. Medium body, smooth, great carbonation and great drinkability.
