12oz, canned 08/22/17. Thanks to my friend, Ken, for sharing his 6 pack with me.
Thick, creamy & foamy off-white head sits atop a very cloudy tangerine colored ale. Big aroma: passion fruit, pineapple, Mandarin orange, lemon, and lime zest. Tropical overtones rule the palate with notes of passion fruit, grapefruit, mango, lemon-lime zest, and Mandarin orange zest creating a zesty & tangy bitterness; wheat and biscuity malt fot a bit of sweetness. Fuller body, not overly bitter finish. Great east coast style non-filtered DIPA with fresh tropical hop notes! Looking forward to drinking more if these!

12 oz. single picked up by this new brewery jumping into the Twin Cities market. Dank, hazy, more buzzwords than a two hour H.R. training session. Good lord, I don’t miss those!

The pour is – clear, golden. Does the word “haze” on the can not mean what I think it means? Plenty of foam. Nose is light, but citrus makes up most of it, with spare fruitiness & lemon mucking up the nose hairs. Pretty tame.

Foggy Geezer was canned 9/18/17 & yes, I just checked, because it tastes like a 2016 IPA. The fruitiness, which might be mango or a related skinned thing, has been liberally mixed with swamp gas, ground up aspirin, & harsh, bitter citrus. Mouthfeel would be…something, but I can’t say much after just a few sips. As drinkable as a glass of water somebody slipped some anti-bacterial soap in.

Just glanced down the reviews & either I got a bad can or there’s a bad case of mass hallucination sweeping the globe. This is awful. So glad I didn’t grab a six pack.

I've been hunting this a bit, so when I came across it in the beer store and it was very fresh (canned 9/13/17), I grabbed it. Pour is a hazy golden color, with a foamy nearly white head.

Aromas are fruity, dank hops. Grapefruit, some berry notes, little malt presence.

The taste is pungent hops, with grapefruit, pineapple, and sweet berry notes coalescing in a hoptabulous frenzy that is absolutely poundable.

I don't know if Todd Hoag was involved in this, but it has his signature all over it - sharp hop bite and feel, with a sense of gravitas he brought to so many Surly beers. Love it.

Poured 12oz can into snifter. An amber orange with a bit of haze and 1.5 finger white head that fades into a thin cap. A very hop forward aroma with a scent of citrus and pine. Big citrus hop scent of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, tangerine, and lemon with some pineapple. A light malt of caramel and touch of honey. Flavor is juicy and earthy hop with notes of citrus and pine. Upfront juicy citrus hop notes of grapefruit, orange peel, tangerine, mango, and lemon with some pineapple that settles with some light caramel malt. Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation and a bitter dry finish. It's a well made IPA.

12oz can, brewed about one week ago, served in a willi becher glass. Pours a more or less clear golden yellow body, one finger thick white head, fair retention, lots of lacing. Smell is rich lemon peel, a bit of grapefruit, minimal caramel, touch of toffee sweetness, bit of lemon. Flavour is grapefruit, light caramel, zesty bitterness, touch of toffee, very light graininess, with a slight syrupy caramel bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, smooth with a mild zesty peel bitterness on the finish. Solid, nothing too spectacular.

White head. Clear golden yellow. No haze at all. Not sure how they can possibly call this a hazy ne ipa.

If they just called this an ipa, I would be much happier. It is good and I do like it, I just don't like how it is marketed. Grapefruit, pineapple, mango. Floral and piney hops. Earthy and citrusy. Bready malts. A touch of booze shows. Medium bodied. Almost should be classified as a dipa.

This is SUPER good. It figures, since Three Floyds is involved. Really fruity and hoppy in a nice way..not too bitter at all. I probably should rate it higher.
