3.87/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 16oz can into a tulip. There does not appear to be a canning date present.

Appearance: hazy orange hue with minimal head and some floaties hanging around in the body. Hazy indeed, but it could be cleaned up a little.

Smell: there's definitely peach in here, but also a big dose of citrusy and tropical hops. I get notes of guava and mango in there, too. Yum!

Taste: hoppy up front with a bit of sourness in the middle; the peach comes through but I think the hops and fruit are at odds a bit here. The finish is more bitter than I normally think of for the style. Not bad, but not their best milkshake IPA.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent level of carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: not a bad beer, but again, I don't think it holds a candle to some of their other entries in the category.

Below a one-finger head lies a true hazy (not opaquely murky like the majority out there). I would not go as far as milkshakes here but it was lovely smooth. I liked the fruits but actually thought this one less peach on the nose and palate than the Hawaiian Crunk. Still nicely done!

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on August 2, 2018. Milkshake style brewed with oats in the mash and lactose in the kettle provide a silky smooth body. Fermented with a Juicy strain of yeast and packed full of hops from start to finish. Finished with a touch of vanilla.
