Notes / Commercial Description:
We packed this beast with an absurd amount of Vic Secret, El Dorado, and Mosaic hops and the result is a juicy citrus, melon, and stone fruit burst of pure radness wrapped in a pillowy soft bundle of awesome.

Other reviewers nailed this stone fruit gem. Head, lacing and mouthfeel are extraordinary. 5 minutes after drinking my mouth is salivating for more.

Pours an opaque dirty yellow that has a bright orange hue when held up to sunlight. The massive cream head refuses to recede and leaves great lacing. The aroma is soft ripe fruits, melons and citrus. Flavor is not as wonderful as the aroma, with an odd bitterness leading into the fruit. Feel is medium body, creamy. Overall a very nice beer.

Poured from 16oz can into glass. No canning date information found on can or on label.
Cloudy, opaque gold colored body. One finger puffy, white head settles to thick cap. Some webs of lacing left behind.
Aroma of tangerine, orange, pineapple, melon, and slight bready malt.
Taste is initially sweet, with tangerine, orange, peach, and pineapple, and at the end is slightly more bitter with citrus rind. Also has earthy and floral hops, along with sweet bread.
Medium mouth feel with good carbonation. Slight sting at the end, and dry.
One of the better Drekker beers I have had, with well balanced smells and tastes, and an appealing appearance for style.

16oz can poured into pint glass, thanks to Todd P from ND.
A: pours a tan golden wheat body, frothy +1 creamy white foam head, stringy lacing, carbonation
S: good hit of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, sweet tangerine, fresh biscuit
M: medium heavy body, juicy finish
T: tropical fruit, sweet tangerine, grapefruit rind, malty, sweet fresh biscuit, hints of pine hop oil resin towards the finish, slight mineral taste in the finish
O: more please... solid DIPA that rocks the palate with good blend of sweet and bitter (this is a low calorie brew right ?), hop heads will enjoy this brew after long day.

Pour is hazy yellowish-orange. Foamy, thick, medium white​ head with good lacing.

Smells Citrus, melon, tropical and malt hints.

Taste grapefruit, orange, mango, melon, lightly fruity, bready hints and slight vegetal. Finish is dry with citrus peel linger and malt. Medium body and creamy medium carbonation. one of my favorite double ipas.
