Got in a trade with hoptheology. 16 ounce can into IPA glass, no can dating. Pours very murky ruby red/purple color with a 3 finger fairly foamy and fluffy pink head with solid retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Good spotty foamy lacing on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas and flavors of big red grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, blackberry, blueberry, strawberry, fruit skin/seed, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, bread, and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness; and light-moderate berry tang/tartness on the finish. Medium-high carbonation, medium body, and fairly crisp finishing. Balanced creamy/bready malts, sticky/resinous hops, and fruit tang/tannins in the mouthfeel. Moderate increasing resin dryness with no hop/fruit astringency. Minimal warming 7.2%. Very drinkable and not overly aggressive. Definitely hits the Hazy IPA mark first with the fruit coming in later. A touch jammy maybe, but the hops are definitely the highlight. Mosaic hops are very vibrant and dank, with a good amount of juiciness. Wasn't sure what to expect, but for a hazy IPA it hits all the right marks. Not much if any sweetness of lactose.

16 oz can, dated 8/2/21, into stemless glass.

Bright pink-burgundy with a creamy bubble gum pink head of 1 finger, receding to a thin ring.

Aroma is faint but jammy. Tart berries with hints of vanilla, pine, and paint thinner.

Flavor is mostly berries and light pine water, but I get a hint of vanilla buttercreme in there as well. It drinks nicely. Definitely not feeling like a 7.2% beer.

Feel is kinda clingy and starchy but in this beer it's okay to me. Heat is minimal. Carbonation is poppy and bright. Slightly resinous finish.

Overall, this is not a home run but not a foul ball either. It's tasty and will stay down. Enjoyable. I'll finish it.

$2.14 / can @ Kit's Trackside

Not a bad berry infused milkshake IPA the fruits come off bright and tart which clash with the base IPA's bitterness pretty well. Not very sweet in the slightest to be called a doughnut beer and very little actual vanilla to be honest. If your looking for a beer that is both tart/fruity with a bitter hoppy twang give this one a go!

Look: Believe it or not it looks like berry juice, bark pink in color with a light pink head that quickly disappeared to a very thin ring around the glass. Lots of suspended solids in this brew.
Smell and Taste: Dry and Tart. Blackberries, strawberries and blueberries combined taste more like raspberries to me. I expected more sweetness being one of their Doughnut Revolution beers. Not that I've had that many, judging by the name.
Overall: To be honest, I didn't read the can completely. I thought I was purchasing a Milkshake Stout. Stilled tried to be fair on the review.
