12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 12/12/2017. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, orange juice, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, honey, white bread dough, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big tangerine, orange juice, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, honey, white bread dough, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very mild pine, herbal, floral, grassy, zesty bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, orange juice, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, honey, white bread dough, light caramel, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 8%. Overall this is a very nice NEIPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the minimally bitter/drying finish. Great soft feel for the style. Very juicy and lightly dank hop complexity; with a balanced bready malt backbone. Not overly sweet/heavy. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. Held up well considering the can dating.

Good, but maybe overhyped due to the collaboration of War Pigs, 3 Floyds, and Mikkeller.

A bit hazy, white head, receded fast.
Not much aroma. Very faint melon? Maybe I have an impaired sniffer.
Clean taste up front with hint of hop fruitiness, cat pee finish.

Maybe I'm feeling jaded by all the IPA out there.

Looks straw yellow with a cloudy opaqueness. Smells pretty citra-y and fresh. Peculiar lemon bubblegum fruit taste. A bit pale. Carb aint my thing. Great masking of booze though.

L - Hazy gold with a substantial off-white head that receded slowly allowing horizontal lacing to form then slide down the side of the Spiegelau IPA glass.
S - Tropical fruits abound with guava and pineapple leading the charge.
T - A monotone bitterness was present but not noteworthy. As if too much collaborating did not allow it to find its way.
F - Strange but this is where this beer shined for me. Starting with an ear tickling astringency but followed by a smoothness that lulls one into thinking the show is over only to explode into a juicy, mouth-watering finish.
O - Definitely a standout in the vast IPA universe.

Color is hazy gold.
Nose is a nice blend of citrusy hops and some pine, on a backdrop of tropical fruits. Taste is pleasurably fruity-hoppy. Love it!
Mouthfeel somewhat light-bodied with velvety bitterness, but all in all, an excellent Hazy/Juicy American IPA, that can bring you sunshine in your glass, on a warm summer day. Just watch the
