4.13/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy light orange with soft, fine head.

Smell is sweet and juicy with notes of vanilla, mango, melon ice cream and oranges.

Taste is sweewith a bit of bitterness. Notes of melon, mango, grapefruit, strawberries and vanilla, with a hint of booze on the finish.

Mouthfeel is thick and chewy, well carbonated.

Overall, a really good milkshake IPA, even thought the sweet/bitter mix grates a little at first.

Poured from a pint can into a nonic.

Pours beyond hazy but not pulpy-cloudy. Orange gold with good head and lacing.

Aromas of light melon flesh, citrus, faint pineapple, and hints of white pepper and pine resin.

The brew is melon-sweet on the tip of the tongue. And then mango, papaya, orange, grapefruit (flesh, zest, pith), and faint berry (strawberry and blackberry). Not quite as sweet as an NEIPA, but sweeter than the average bear on the DIPA side. Straddles the line well and doesn't feel like an error for failing to fall decisively on one side or the other. A nice fusion. Just a touch of warming but well-hidden booze at the finish.

The brew is medium-full bodied. Decent feel, but falls a little flat compared to everything else. Needs a bit more carbonation.

An excellent brew that would be world-class with a bit more lift.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on October 30, 2019. A lactose double IPA brewed with Vic Secret, Belma and Huell Melon hops. It's soft and juicy with notes of pineapple, passionfruit and strawberry.

A "lactose double IPA" featuring pale two row malt, flaked oats, Carafoam, spelt, malted oats and lactose, Vic Secret, Belma, and Huell Melon hops, and their house IPA yeast... Despite my general fatigue toward the style, this was a well-done and enjoyable beer... Poured an opaque medium gold with a few fingers of white foam on top... Lots of bright citrus, smooth melon, and lightly sweet fruits... Has a nice bitterness, combing lots of pith and peel impressions on the nose and palate... Smooth and soft, with a slight tang, mild bitterness, and restrained sweetness... 5/16/19 canning, 8.5% abv...

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had a yellowish color and an extremely cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of hops, berries, melon, malt, citrus fruit, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (mostly in the finish), lots of citrus fruit (orange, in particular), a fair amount of hops (not overdone), some strawberry notes, a bit of melon, and a lot of tropical fruit (pineapple). A sweet, fruity, and lively flavor. It reminds more of an NE IPA flavor than anything else, but it definitely works. Delicious.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth, creamy finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A thoroughly enjoyable beer. Drinkable.

Can. Super cloudy sunset yellow.

Super juicy and tropical ipa. Soft and fluffy. Mango, papaya, orange, melons. Wow, this is flavorful. Not super boozy either. One of their best.

This beer pours a very opaque off yellow with a moderate head. The aroma mingle sweet berry flavors of raspberry, blackberry, and boysenberry, with with pine, and a touch of pineapple. The flavor is a bit softer and more direct, with pineapple, mango, quite a bit of pine and grass. The mouthfeel is soft and full. Overall this is a nice beer, a big, full, quite sweet NEIPA, although the aroma promised something more interesting than the flavor delivered, it is still very enjoyable.
