Straight haze with no light penetration. Milky orange-yellow, with an almost peachy highlight. Almost a finger of white head that dissipates slowly. Faint oaty, hoppy smell with slight citrus fruit notes. Full-bodied citrus, piney, hoppy flavor. Significantly bitter, but not off-putting. Thick and creamy mouth feel with bright tingly carbonation.

Solid juicy IPA that's definitely worth trying.

Flavorful citrus, cloudy and a nice mouthfeel in a simple but well-balanced juicy treat.

L - Hazy orange, 1 finger of head and tons of lacing. Looks like an IPA milkshake. Gorgeous!

S - Fresh squeezed orange juice, tangerines. Citrus dominates

T - Pine hops and bitter, grapefruit dominate. As good as advertised

F - Medium body and well carbonated

O - Excellent NE style IPA. Authentic. Maybe a touch too bitter, but damn good

Date: Canned on 11/27/18, consumed on 12/10/18.

Appearance: It's an NE IPA and it looks the part. Full haze with absolutely zero light coming through. Slightly sludgy orange in color with a finger of fizzy white head.

Aroma: If there is a brewery out there that I could identify immediately based on aroma alone, it would be Bearded Iris. That huge oat aroma is almost unmistakable. Aside from that, we have the usual suspects which include tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon, and bitter grapefruit. Additionally there is a cream like aroma mingling in the background, almost like the whipped cream the might accompany a peaches and cream style dessert.

Taste: Surprisingly, Homestyle is a good deal more bitter than the nose would indicate. The front is sweet tropical fruits but that quickly fades and the beer turns breifly to the unsweetened oat backbone and then takes a swan dive into a bitter, pithy, lemon and herbal pool. I generally feel these Bearded Iris are all quality beers, I just don't care much for the oats as it makes a 6% IPA drink like a 10% Imperial Stout. That being said, I do like the fact that this isnt a overly sweet, 20 IBU NE IPA. As the beer warms, a nice slightly resinous hop bouquet blooms. There is some green herbal notes that have emerged as well.

Pours a bright golden color, thickly hazy, thin white head that dissipates quickly.
Smell is bitter lemon peel with a mild sweetness.
Taste is bitter citrus rind on the front end and thinly orange juicy on the tail end
Mouthfeel is fairly soft but dissapointingly thin.
Overall this is a pretty mediocre beer. Somewhat of a citrussy ipa that seems to be going for the neipa thing without really hitting the mark. Not bad, not as good as i hoped.
