Notes: 3.8 Miles opens with bright notes of ripe mango, fresh lemon zest, juicy pineapple, and candied apricot, followed by a subtle resiny dankness to balance. For this follow up to 38 Blocks, we kept the base beer mostly the same, but started with a brand new hop bill consisting of nearly 8 lbs of Mosaic, El Dorado and Lemondrop hops per barrel. The slightly higher attenuation allows the soft, creamy mouthfeel to hold up to the incredibly bold hop character without finishing too sweet. Despite the assertive hop character, 3.8 Miles maintains excellent drinkability as a result of the lower bitterness achieved from adding all the hops in the whirlpool and dry hop.

Deep, glowing orange color to the beer's body; one-finger thick head, semi-creamy and sculpted. Pineapple and mango scents ride atop a mild biscuit aroma. The taste follows along the lines of the smell; powdery biscuit and grapefruit mixed with a very light presence of orange peel; bold hop bitterness at the finish; some alcohol presence. Heavy body; dense and creamy; juicy overall with some boozy heat at the finish.

This awesome selection from Weldwerks does justice to the hazy IPA phenomenon. It works at all sensory levels, especially with the mouthfeel. Outstanding overall...
