16oz can served in a large snifter. Given to me by a friend at work. Date on the bottom is 08312017.

Pours like an orange julius -- pale amber and turbid. Looks super thick. Big head and lots of carbonation. If I wasn't getting used to this hazy IPA thing, I'd find the appearance unnerving. Smell is juicy and green.

Taste is bitter and juicy. Maybe some floral stuff going on in there.

Mouthfeel is thick, dry, and a bit gritty. Overall, it's a nice beer.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a very hazy (smoothie?) medium golden amber with a two finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of mild caramel malt, tropical fruit, especially pineapple, citrus hops, orange citrus. Flavor is citrus and piney hops, guava, kiwi, pineapple, orange and grapefruit, drying out into a more resinous piney and dank hop finish with light residual fruit esters. Medium bodied with light creaminess. Big fruit juice as advertised, but more hop alpha oil forward in the finish than the regular big juice version. The fruit flavors are great and the hops are flavorful. Big Juice was one of my favorite IPAs last year and this has very similar fruit forward character, but the finish is less balanced, probably due to all the interesting unfiltered hop material floating in here. I love the look of these unfiltered IPAs, but there are definitely more raw herb hop flavors in here too. Will not win my heart from the last version, but still a great unfiltered, fruit forward IPA.
