3.83/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head small traces of lacing. Smell was citrus fruit ,tangerine,mango very tropical. Taste follows nose but not as good,citrus notes of orange, and tangerine,mixes with mango and apricot. very fruity,then sweet malts round this out with a pinch of citrus peel bitterness. Mouth feel had low carbonation,with little bitterness and a sweet finish (to sweet),ABV well hidden. IDK twas not overly impressed by this one,will give it another try.

4.25/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: hazy, yellow; chalk-like haze. Silky when poured with very little head.

Aroma: the hops produce prominent mango. Tropical juiciness. Excellent! So inviting. Be sure to drink this one from the can. I think TBD’s nose is superior to Juicy Bits’.

Flavor: Super hoppy upfront. Dry. 1-dimensional, then as the hops mellow, floral notes appear followed by honeysuckle, melon and orange zest. Very clean. Dare I say again, dry.

Mouthfeel: medium-medium body. Spritzy; very fine carbonation.

Overall: very nice. This leans toward the better side of Weldwerks’ portfolio. This beer is dry, which seems to hinder the style’s juiciness. This beer has great flavor, but I feel it is the weakest metric of this beer.

08/05/18 impression from a can:

CAN: 500ml format. Standard pull-tab. Elegantly simple white and black label design. Canned 07/25/18.

"New England style double IPA." "Brewed with Citra + Simcoe hops." 8.2% ABV.

HEAD: ~4cm in height. Off-white colour. Not too creamy or robust. Could be fuller and thicker. ~4-5 minute retention.

BODY: Hazy orange of above average vibrance. No yeast/lees are visible within. Translucent. Nontransparent.

Has a nice appearance for an IPA in spite of its obvious lack of filtration.

AROMA: Citrusy above all. Orange peel, orange flesh, hints of oniony Simcoe, floral notes, juicy fruit, zest, tangerine, and subdued melon. Pale malt (and I think wheat?) balance out any hop bitterness (at least judging by the aroma).

Aromatic intensity is average. Suggests a delightfully well-balanced IPA with a nice hop profile and low bitterness. I detect no off-notes or booze.

TASTE & TEXTURE: Orange creamsicle comes to mind given its creamy mouthfeel and citrusy taste. Orange, tangerine, melon, wheat, pale malt, floral hop notes, a scintilla of onion, and fruity zest.

Clean yet juicy, hitting pleasantly on mellow citrusy flavours.

Soft, smooth, wet, medium-bodied, refreshing, and approachable. Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, harsh, rough, or scratchy.

OVERALL: A solid IPA that boasts terrific balance and has a likeable hop profile. Stands out in probably the most oversaturated style there is, which is saying something. Hides its high ABV ludicrously well without drifting too far into India Odwalla Ale territory. Highly drinkable and enjoyable with no obvious flaws/faults. More impressive work from one of Colorado's finest IPA producers...watch out, Odd 13 & Odell.

B / GOOD

Up there with the heralded greats in the substyle everyone talks about from hyped breweries on either coast. Bests the majority of what I've tried from Treehouse, Other Half, Monkish, etc.

I have had better, but if you must have an imperial IPA that adheres to the johnny-come-lately "hazy IPA" substyle's conventions, this is about as solid a bet as you'll find in the state of Colorado.

B+ / VERY GOOD
