Light haze look. The hops give off a grapefruit and lemon zest aroma. The taste is similar to nose but finishes with a light bitterness and some pine notes. Lots of lacing all over the glass.

Misc.: Collaboration between WarPigs. 3 Floyds and Mikkeller; Canned on Oct. 4, 2017

Thanks, Chad!

Got this as part of a nice haul from Chad on his latest work trip to San Diego. Was a hazy IPA collaboration between 3 Floyds (great), Mikkeller (slightly overrated) and WarPigs (only knew the song War Pigs by Black Sabbath). Front of the can called it, “A super fruity and dank WarPigs hazy IPA forged in collaboration between Three Floyd’s and Mikkeller.” Let’s do this.

Poured a straw hazy color with one finger of off-white fizzy head. Calm serene setting underneath with no noticeable bubbles. Average watery lacing. Decent retention. (Sight - 3.25)

Smelled orange juice, pineapple, white grapefruit, nectarine, lemon and citrus zest. Maybe the addition of mango and guava from the nose. Certainly and upgrade from the glass pour. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted not quite as good as the nose. A lot going on here. Got no pulp orange juice, grapefruit, pineapple, mandarin orange, bitter mango rind, citrus zest, passion fruit and light guava. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt bitter finish. (Feel - 3.75)

A very good New England Style beer, although I overrated slightly. (Overall - 3.75)

an absolutely delicious ipa here, only the second beer from these guys i have seen at all, but a hugely better beer than the flagship ipa that has circulated. this is a bigger beer, stronger and far hoppier, even more dry hoppy too, with a bursting juice complexion to it that screams pineapple and tangerine or mandarin at me, lemongrass and even raw coconut. they dont tell us which hops theyve used, but i would think some combination of southern hemisphere varietals has to be at play here, with this level of tropical fruit and white grape happening, i would be surprised if something from that part of the world wasnt leading the charge. the malt base is light in flavor but there is quite a bit of body here, and a crispness which i find awesome, extremely uncommon in the east coast style ipa, they seem to carry on forever most of the time, but this one resolves abruptly on the finish, this intensely fruity drift is arrested immediately on the swallow, and only a light wash of mango and bitterness creeps back in, its a great way to wrap this up. the fruitiness of the hops here is second to none, it tastes super fresh which i imagine is critical for this tasting so good, and it retains some west coast character with its hop intensity and oily feel. really great glass of ipa, i wish this was available in colorado!
