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

S: A sweet and fruity aroma of citrus fruit, hops, tropical fruit, coconut, and malt

T: Tasted of a decent shot of tropical fruit (mango, in particular), some coconut (more than expected; a good addition), a moderate amount of hops (less than usual for a DIPA), light malt (mostly in the finish - it gets drowned out by the fruit), and a lot of citrus (tangerine). A sweet, lively, and fruity flavor. More like an NE IPA in character, but still tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth and creamy finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A well done, light, and easy to like beer. Drinkable.

Light yellowish haze with a small thin head, super leaves some lacing. Nothing overwhelming to the smell but good citrus notes. Super smooth soft mouthfeel full of citrus notes and a slight bitter cold bite with a hint of coconut in the finish. An excellent IPA overall

Drekker Hater Blockers DIPA, 8% ABV. Pours a bright hazy gold with a two-finger white head that left lots of lacing. Nose is pine, mango, and citrus, taste follows with moderate bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel, overall excellent.

Pours an opaque hazy gold. Hints of limes, oranges, and mangoes with pine on the back end. Smooth mouth feel and slight alcohol warmth on the finish. I really like this one.

Can. White head with lace. Hazy sunset orange color.

Mango, melon, orange, and honeydew. Very soft and creamy. Has a faint hop burn in the finish, which I expect to go away in a week. Otherwise, I really dig this one. For a non cream hazy, this is cream of the crop.

Edit: a few weeks later and a lot less hop burn. This is great.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy light pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of coconut are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of coconut along with hints of lime and mango.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has lots of aromas and flavors of coconuts and does a very good job at masking any traces of alcohol from the taste.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Canned on 01/31/2021. Sample from the brewery.

Malts: Pale Two Row, Oats, Carafoam, Spelt, Chit
Hops: Sabro, Mosiac, Citra
Yeast: House IPA Yeast

Murky, milky, straw, pale orange-yellow with a thick, creamy lace. Tropical and coconut in the nose with some floral notes. Medium-bodied, a bit chewy, and incredibly creamy, soft, and smooth. Fruity and juicy with a big smack of lemon-line followed by pineapple, tangerine, honeydew melon, and overripe strawberries. A bit spicy and boozy. Some coconut suggestions too. Slightly toasty malts with an underlying doughiness. Grassy, a bit astringent, and bitter with an herbal and resiny linger and heavy dose of hop burn.

Other than burping up hops and wreaking my esophagus for the next few hours, this a damn good hazy DIPA.
