L-Classic hazy IPA look...glowing light orange...1/4 inch white head

S-Right from the opening of the can the aroma jumps out. First impression is a an orange dreamsicle. Then, a good burst of mango. Really top notch.

T-Very smooth ripe citrus. Oranges, tangerines. Also the mango notes. Touch of papaya. Light pineapple. Not too sweet with the fruit flavors....just right.

F-Creamy, medium bodied...no harshness and no real bitterness.

O-Wow. This is really impressive. Easy drinking juice laden IPA offering that never pushes the "too sweet" boundaries.

Misc.: Canned on Oct. 18, 2018; Collab between Modern Times and Fair State

Always nice to see Fair State in San Diego. Passed on a couple of others because of some September canned on dates, but had to pick up this one as I’m a sucker for Modern Times and I’ve liked everything I’ve had from Fair State. Online description read, “A silly, hazy & fun IPA brewed in collaboration with Modern Times Beer. Super juicy, tropical, and dank. Brewed with Pilsner malt (barley), pale wheat, flaked oats, flaked barley, and hopped with x331 Experimental, Mosaic, & Citra.”

Poured a golden hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of rocky-to-frothy white head. Could seem some slow moving bubbles creeping up along the sides of the glass. World-class spiderweb foamy lacing. Perfect retention. (Sight - 4.75)

Smelled initially almost like a sour IPA. Got sugary Citra, orange, tangerine, citrus zest, papaya, Mosaic, floral, passion fruit and crusted up Smarties. Naturally better out of the can with Mosaic, Citra and passion fruit leading the way, and even some pineapple. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste was certainly better than the nose, but still was reminding me of a sour IPA. Got grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, sugary Citra, Mosaic, papaya, passion fruit, lemon and Pilsner malt. (Taste - 4.00)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Clean finish. (Feel - 4.50)

Was back and forth for a bunch of the categories, but fine with where I ended up. (Overall - 4.25)

Comp with modern times
Awesome beer
Killer mouthfeel
Great texture
Super juicy with a small bitter finish. I could crush these all day.
Hazy for the haze bros
I’ll give credit to modern times on this cause it tastes like one of their beers
