Drink Fresh!

Poured slightly aggressively into a HopCulture TeKu, this American/Hazy IPA collab between Warpigs and Three Floyd’s pours a hazy, light golden liquid nectar with a frothy 3 finger head that settles nicely into a soft, half-finger head with minimal lacing down the walls of the glass.

A full nose of bright citrusy hops is balanced by a light-weight malt. Apricot and stone fruits jump forward on the nose with a small yet discernible bit of musk that opens into an appetizingly dank brew. Tropical notes are definitely hanging around also.

The flavors on the palate are similar to the nose, though far more impactful and pleasantly explosive. They roll over the tongue and unfurl. A slight chew of peach, predominated by citrus and an ever-so-slight touch of pine on the tongue warms into a not-overly-bitter pale ale backbone

At ~6.8% ABV, this drinks relatively light, but is just about a perfect mid-weight IPA. Appealing to hazy band wagoners, those new to the style, and traditional hopheads alike. This beer seems borderline sessionable in weight, but packs sufficient booziness to hold its own and make sure you know what your drinking is quality ale.

Pour this into a nice tulip or TeKu and enjoy fresh! Cheers

Effervescent and light. Wheat beer look/hazy. Not too heavy on the hop notes. Well balanced. Just right. For a guy who is sick and tired of IPAs this one is great!

Very pleased. I'm on a hazy IPA kick & this fits the bill for sure. Poured from a can, but I'm gonna look for a tap.

Not a one dimensional beer. Juicy without undermining hop profile. Well balanced between tropical and spicy hops.

A-Bright yet hazy yellow with a nice pronounced head that lingers
S-Fruit and sweet candy upfront aroma with a layer of dank and citrus hop character underneath
M-Medium body with a fullness that is nice, carbonation is medium high and lends a peppery effervescence on the tongue
T-Really well balanced bitter-sweet level with a crisp finish that is pleasant. There is a spice that remains around the gums in an aftertaste type of way
O-Great beer, nuff said, go try it!

Had this on 2018-08-11 in Columbia, PA from a 12oz canned on 2017-11-07

A - Very hazy gold with a 2-finger off-white head that sticks around, leaving nice lace.

S - Peach, pineapple, biscuit, lightly dank. Mild but pleasant.

T - Peach, pineapple, orange zest, celery, white pepper, biscuit, mild-moderate dankness and bitterness. Some fruit sweetness in the finish provides balance to the dank/bitter flavors.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Resinous and lightly prickly.

O -Enjoyed the balanced flavors and restrained dankness and bitterness. Fruit flavors came through without being cloying. Well done.

Thick looking, with a golden orange hue; looks almost like watered down orange juice. Bright up front, with the IBU's not showing up until the last second. Then you'll get the pine/citrus hop profile which balances well with the up front brightness.

This is a good IPA that I'd be happy paying top shelf price for if it were available to me regularly.

Canned 06/21/18. Obvious citrus-dominated aroma. Grapefruit, with other tropical fruits mixing in. A bit of pineapple. Hazy, turbid orange color with a nice white head, that disappears vanishingly fast, leaving lacing and a thin sparse bubbly cap. The look is excellent with the exception of the vanishing head. Smooth mouth feel. Mild and juicy initial taste, transitioning to noticeable bittering in the middle, and finishing with a fresh tropical fruit taste, with bittering again asserting in the aftertaste. The transitioning of the taste from the beginning, to the middle, into the finish, and then the aftertaste is wonderfully interesting. Just when you think it is done, it changes again.

First had poured from 12-oz. can into nonic pint. This is light-bodied, but still a balanced, traditional East Coast IPA, despite the “hazy” nod to the NEIPA.

Canned on 5/15/2018. Poured into pint glass 6/23/18. Hazy orangey yellow. I smelled the citrus when I poured. Citrus, melon smell to the nose. White head that left quickly. Taste did not follow nose. Bitter, dank, earthy at first, finished with grapefruit earthy taste. Mouthfeel - leaving a film on tongue. Nice lacing on the glass. I like it. Would I purchase again. No. Fun to try new stuff. Cheers!
