look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had a yellow / orange color and an extremely cloudy consistency. There was a quarter inch of creamy head that quickly dissipated. Above average lacing.

S: A sweet and enticing aroma of hops, citrus fruit, tropical fruit, malt, melon, and berries.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (overpowered by the other elements), some tropical fruit (passion fruit, in particular), a good shot of hops (pretty bitter, especially in the finish), light melon, a lot of citrus fruit i(grapefruit, orange), and some berry notes as well. An exceptionally well-balanced flavor. The right levels of fruity and bitter.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a smooth and creamy finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Another well made DIPA from Drekker. Drinkable.

Review #1425
The first beer I drunk from Drekker was a fruit smoothie, that beer was off the charts. I was able to jump on this beer, Night Machine. I have consumed several DIPA I am eager to review this beer. I am hopeful it is not disappointing. The beer is 48 degrees and served in a tulip glass. The pour of the beer created a two-fingered head. The white foam has excellent retention. The creamy head left lacing on the glass as it dissipated slowly. The color of the beer is SRM 5, pale straw with golden yellow hues. This beer is cloudy.

The initial aromas in the beer are oranges, mangos, and floral esters. Nosing further, I smell biscuit, bread, lemons, grapefruit, bay leaves, and hay.

The flavors in the beer are grapefruit, resin, orange peel, floral esters, bread, biscuit, honey, lemons, earthiness, bay leaves, hay, grass, and some dankness.

The mouthfeel of the beer is creamy, astringent, and coating.

The body of the beer is medium-plus, medium carbonation, and fuller finish.

This beer did not disappoint but did not wow me. The hop profile is danky and musty with grapefruit and orange peel. The beer is oily and coating on the palate. It is another hybrid hop style. This beer has those juicy citrus flavors with some pine and resin mingling within this hop party. I could drink a few of these and enjoy myself doing it. This is a tasty beer with huge hop flavors.

16oz can served in a big snifter. No date that I see.

Pours a milky pale golden with a small head and small, fine carbonation. Smell is tropical juice, mango or papaya or something.

Taste is bitter and juicy -- like the skin of the mango or something similar. Nice and refreshing.

Mouthfeel is kind of thick but not chewy or sticky. Overall, nice beer.

16oz can from Tavour. Milky, hazy pale yellow pour, grapefruit juice, fine, patchy head. Citrusy aroma, grapefruit peel, light floral notes. Taste comes in jui y, tangy, bitter. Fruity, citrus and some flowery elements from the Vic Secret . Fairly full mouthfeel that leaves a tingling on the palate. These guys can amaze with the haze!

Can. White head with some lace. Hazy yellow color.

Melon, mango, and tangerine. Earthy and zesty hops. Soft and creamy. Smooth with a nice drinkability and nice showing of hops. Drekker continuing to bring the goods.
