A- Tallboy into narrow becher with a slightly hazy pale yellow body and a frothy, fluffy head. The white cream rises to two inches high and retains pretty well. A large belt around the edges leaves webs and sheets of drizzled lacing.

S- It is a hop bomb but more specifically it is a dank weed and onion bomb with a hint of those juicy fruit hops as well. In the backdrop of the dank onions is peach, mint, melon, mango and slight pineapple.

T- As in the aroma this beer is a dank skunky onion weed bomb and the hops are bascially the entire flavor profile. The hops are smooth and fresh and there is nothing abrasive here at all, just smooth weed and juice. Fruits that come to mind are mango, orange, tangerine, peach, melon, mandirin, pineapple and very slight passionfruit. A touch of sweetness goes well with the hops.

MF- Light-medium bodied, closer to the latter, with medium level of carbonation. The texture is just a bit frothy and foamy and it ends with a zesty citrus bitterness.

A dank hop bomb that is focused around weed, onion and juicy fruit flavors. Drinks especially smoothly and lacks that hop abrasiveness newer NEIPAs can have.

4 pack of cans from Bier Cellar Portland.
Hazy dark yellow color with a decent sized tightly bubbled white head that persists. Juicy citrus and light tropical fruits with a hint of earth and some sweet bready maltiness to back it up. I really enjoyed this one.

3.73/5  rDev -5.8%

Pours a medium gold color, lightly cloudy, with a fizzy 1 finger head that settles down quickly without much lacing.

The nose is not too strong, with some citrus notes as well as a sweet esther-y malt behind it

The flavor is sharp up front with a lemon-grapefruit flavor along with a sweet flavor reminiscent of bananas, though this is pretty far in the background. A sweet malt is lightly present.

The feel is soft and only lightly bitter.

This is okay but I feel the weaker one in this series. The balancing seems a bit off with it.
