Poured from a 16 ounce can dated 2/21 so about three weeks old.

Pours a thick, dark orange almost light brown color. Completely opaque with a quickly dissolving white head. Smell is subtle, little bit of booze and a touch of pineapple. Taste is boozy with a bit of sweetness at the end. I'm not getting much bitterness at all and not getting much fruit either. Medium body that sticks around.

LGA 2 LGB - Other Half feat. Monkish
IIPA - 10% abv
Canned 2/21/18 (25 days ago)

L - 1.5 finger bright white head atop a dark, muddy, completely opaque orange body.

S - orange, some booze, some candy sweetness. Not a lot going on here.

T - boozy right from the start. Candied citrus next. Some tropical fruit flavors. Very, very sweet and boozy. Low bitterness.

F - medium-full body with typical low carb.

O - I much prefer the Monkish take on this beer. This one swings too boozy and sweet for my liking.

The beer pours a murky yellow with a medium sized white head. It has low carbonation. It smells of orange rind, mango, melon, and white peppers. The beer tastes of orange rind, mango, melon, and white peppers. It’s full bodied with no bitterness, but quite boozy. I did not enjoy this beer is wasn’t well balanced and had an off putting peppery taste on the back end.

No canned on date.

Pours a hazy golden orange. Patchy lace and frothy white head.

Subtle, even nose. Sweet malt, booze, citrus. Pineapple, tropical sweetness lingers.

The boozy bitterness comes off strong right away, surprisingly for a DIPA. Still very tasty, slightly stinging. Citrus comes back, mango lingers. Very good.

Smooth, creamy, juicy. Finishes sticky, great mouthfeel.

Drank on tap at Trillium Garden at the Substation, Boston, MA
Served in a Willi Becher

Completely opaque, yellow ochre appearance. The turbid body was topped by an immensely tight and frothy, inch-tall, bright white crown that slowly faded to a lasting collar. Some spotty, streaky lacing stuck along the glass.

The aroma was fruity and bright but slightly more subtle than I anticipated. Peach and nectarine notes came through strong. Lots of mango too. Good amount of citrus as well. Juicy orange notes were most apparent. Fair amount of malty sweetness. Bit of weed-like dankness.

The flavor profile was outstanding. Super hoppy and punchy. Peach and nectarine notes dominated. Loads of mango as well. Quite malty and sweet up front but well balanced overall. Citrus appeared as the beer moved along the palate. Big, juicy orange creamsicle notes. More orange and orange peel on the back end and in the finish. Just the slightest hint of rind-like bitterness. Touch of lingering booze after the swallow.

The mouthfeel was amazingly creamy, slick and smooth. Super frothy and supple on the palate. Quite viscous and full bodied for the style. The liquid contained a fine, moderate, tongue blanketing effervescence.

In addition to being super hoppy, triple IPAs are usually quite malty and sweet, and LGA 2 LGB is no exception. With that said, this beer was phenomenal. Folks that dig hoppy milkshake-like juicebombs should definitely appreciate this.
