Notes: Juice Pants is a healthily hopped hazy IPA showcasing both Citra hops and cryo, as well as Mosaic hops and cryo. This juice bomb is exploding with stone fruit and tropical flavors.

Stay woke to the Pants!

On tap at the brewery. Look is yellow orange, a bit lighter than Son, and hazy. Smell is very dank, lots of marijuana notes happening. Taste is creamy and juice forward, quickly replaced by the dank marijuana thing. Feel is fine, nothing remarkable. Overall, I prefer the fruit forward of Son over this one, but still excellent

Clean, a bit syrupy, heavy bitter shower followed by no aftertaste or tang

2018 cans:

Steadily improving, as of late 2018 they have transitioned to cans. Always a solid option.

The 2nd batch of this seems to be slightly improved, it was ok on draft, nothing too exciting.
Picked up a bottle after they were sampling it out at the Beer Temple.

Bright golden orange with carb trails visible. Not much head, a thin layer of skim and no lace.
Clarity is sharp, there's no haze at all.
Aroma is lightly citrusy and bitter, grapefruit and light papaya.
Taste is dry and bitter, grapefruit peel, hint of tropical something in the back.
Light bodied and dry, pretty easy drinking. It's pretty good overall.

Huge tropical aroma with citrus juice elements. A very soft bitterness that allows the hop flavor to take over. It tastes like straight tropical fruit juice. This is ridiculously good.

Released 10/2/18; drank 10/10/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange/yellow appearance.

A rough pour yielded a huge bright white head; strong, frothy lace.

Grapefruit, pine & mild table sugar & faint dry grass notes in the nose.

Medium thick, sticky mouthfeel.

Grapefruit & table sugar flavors up front; bitter pine note son the finish.

Sure, it looks "hazy", but this is old model, brutal IPA ass-backwardsness. Permanent pass.

22 ounce bottle into a snifter. Batch #3, maybe 3-4 weeks old when I had it on 12/25/16.

Pours an apricot color, cloudy, with a short head and some spotty lacing. The smell is lots of citrus- tangerine, lime, lemon, orange. Also resiny, with a light dankness, light malt, yeast. The taste shifts to a citrus and pine, or resiny balance, with the citrus showing tangerine, orange, lime, some mango. Light malt, less dank than the nose. Smooth, refreshing, a little dry for the style, a good body, well carbonated.

Bright citrus and resin, a great aroma, very good flavor. Enjoyable to drink. Certainly worth a purchase.
