3.79/5  rDev -11%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

16oz can with a date of 05/18/21.
Hazy without being turbid orange color with a finger of dense head. Aroma of citrus with some dank lingering in the background. Flavor is too sweet with little bitterness. It is juicy no doubt with abundant citrus flavors. Big beer and nicely carbonated. Soft and lush.

Poured from a 16oz can into a shaker pint

Look: Translucent pale orange with a thick white head

Smell: notes of golden raspberry, tangerine, fresh cut grass, and whole wheat bread with a hint of treacle tart

Taste: Raspberry pudding. The body is clean. With orange blossom honey, mango, and whole wheat bread.

Overall: A pretty wild mix of a west coast and New England styles. Tasty.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

SIXTEEN FL. OZ. can
Served in a stemless wine glass

This beer pours an orangish shade of yellow and is hazy. When held to the light suspended yeast is visible. It is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves decent lacing.

It has a nice citrus and honeydew melon aroma. There are hints of tropical fruit.

The taste is dank upfront. I get some tropical fruit in the middle followed by melon. Grapefruit and light pine in the finish.

Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel

It is a pretty good hazy IPA. Nothing to make it stand out from the millions and millions of varieties of this style.

16oz can served in a big snifter. Dated 02.21.21. Bought it in Bend, not sure if it was Market of Choice or Newport Street Market.

Pours a moderately hazy golden-yellow with a smallish head. Smell is tropical, pithy, and green.

Taste is darker, earthier, bitterer. Somewhat herbal, more resinous, somehow both overripe fruit and fruit skin bitter.

Mouthfeel is medium, fairly light and dry. Overall, it's pretty good.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Picked up a 16 oz single from the Craft Beer Hop Stop cooler 11-7-20 for $3.99. Canned 10-6-20; consumed 2-20-21. Cold stored since purchase.

Beer poured a hazy golden with a nice white head with the original pour.

Nose is a very nice dose of fresh citrus.

Taste is a light but substantial pale malt base infused with orange, mango, and a touch of blueberries. Finishes with a nice touch of pine and rind bitterness; 7/10 on my scale.

Mouthfeel is light bodied for a bigger beer and very refreshing.

Overall this is a well done new school meets old school beer as there is an appropriate amount of bitterness for the style yet it is very light and refreshing. Would have again!

Given how balanced and reliable Homestyle is, I expected the DIPA version to blow me away. It's balanced and flavorable, but maybe a little too sweet and not as flavor packed as I might have imagined. Still a good beer.

2.77/5  rDev -35%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

This beer pours a mildly hazy yellow with a fairly large head. The aroma is floral at first, with a indistinct fruit cocktail feel, and some citrus peel. The flavor is again rather muddled, with some tangerine, pineapple, and underripe stone fruit. The mouthfeel is fairly creamy with soft carbonation. Overall I found this rather disappointing - it had a diffuse, almost watery flavor, with a difficult fruitiness to pick apart.

Hazy bright yellow body with two fingers of white foam. Huge pineapple, orange, lemon, and melon leading the smell with peach and floral hops. Taste is a clone with some dankness thrown in, great combination of juiciness and hop bitters, a mosaic bomb that doesn't overpower. Body is light, bright, well hopped, and wet. Just really well made

Drank 2mo past the canned on date. Came through mail via Tavour w/ at least a couple days spent in a wine cellar. What I am drinking almost completely lacks any taste. I got an almost nothing head that did not last more than seconds. Pretty sure this IPA is no longer good because of its age and conditioning. Hope to go again at this brew sometime in the future.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours cloudy orange color with a 2 finger thick white colored head that faded very slowly and left good lacing. Smells tropical with a lot of citrus fruit, caramel, grapefruit, papaya, orange peel, sweet malt and faint spices. Well balanced with a fine level of sweetness. Tastes like it smells but with souring orange juice, Razzles candy, a dash of brown sugar and syrupy wheat bread. There’s not much bitterness and the alcohol shows through but it’s still an enjoyable IPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a narrow collar around the edge and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of stone fruit are present in the nose along with notes of lime citrus.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that the flavors are lime are stronger and more in par with those of the lime. Little to no bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied, juicy, and slightly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very similar to Homestyle - while the abv is a little stronger it is still quite drinkable.

4.14/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate honey + bright yellow + pale yellow + pale orange colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized patch of medium thick film covering a little more than 60% of the surface of the beer surrounded by a large patch of slightly mottled very thin film covering the remainder of the surface and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy citrus/grapefruit + citrus/orange + tropical/mango + tropical/pineapple + tropical/passionfruit hops + moderate aromas of dank resinous hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + toasted + caramel + oat malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + toasted + caramel + oat malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of dank resinous hops and moderate to strong flavors of juicy citrus/grapefruit + citrus/orange + tropical/mango + tropical/pineapple + tropical/passionfruit hops which imparts a light amount of bitterness which lingers slightly then fades away leaving moderate lingering tropical + citrus + dank hop flavors.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp upfront with a very light amount of soft/fluffiness mid-body and a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a refreshing mouthfeel. Enjoyable, highlighting the Mosaic hop with lots of citrus + tropical + dank flavor and aromas.

Eclipses the base beer by more than 2...I like Homestyle but this is really really special...

Really juicy and hazy... pungent aromas of melons and berries... no trace of booze...

The best IPA that BI makes in my opinion....

Really terrific...

Pour is an attractive golden haze with 1.5 fingers of fluffy white head. Smell is all mosaic and smells very good. Taste is somehow different than what I expected. I can't put a finger on what I'm tasting. It's good, but different. Good balance. Not too hoppy or too juicy. Good beer.

3.83/5  rDev -10.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy, gray-hued orange-bronze with two fat fingers of rocky, yellowed head that leave thick, soapy lacing.

Sweet, peppery aroma of orange, pine, pineapple and pepper. (I’m reminded of Chinese food: orange sauce, sweet and sour sauce, and pepper chicken.)

The taste is likewise very peppery, with more of that orange-pineapple sweetness, some pine and a dull, watery bitterness in the finish.

Full bodied with modest carbonation.

A hybrid between a piney, bitter IPA and a NEIPA, not unlike something you’d expect from The Alchemist, but with a lot more pepper and a bit less finesse. Tasty nonetheless.

L: Mostly filtered orange brew with some haze and a couple fingers of dense orange-tinted ivory head, slowly settling and leaving a plentiful Rorschach pattern of lace. Mouthwatering to look at.

S: Principle aroma is wet dog. I smelled this over and over and wet dog without doubt. There are notes of booze and citrus below this. The bad qualities did fade by the last third of my beer.

T: More on the minerally-stone fruit and dank. No wet dog on the palate thank god.

F: Biting carbonation, nice weight and smooth mouthfeel. Not overly resinous or heavy. Not boozy. Nice.

O: I was surprised and validated to find other less than savory descriptions of the aroma such as musty and armpit in the reviews. For me the smell was off-putting enough I would not choose this again. The other three Bearded Iris brews were really good and standard Homestyle was stellar.

Fairly nice IPA that reminded me of a NE style ale. “08/20” printed on can. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-orange color with a little fluffy white head and some nice looking small rings of lingering lacing. Smells of ripe pineapple, grapefruit, lemon and orange. Also some malt, creamy vanilla, bread and floral hops in the background. Taste follows the nose, good balance and nice mild bitter hit of hoppiness at the finish. Smooth mild slightly creamy mouthfeel with good carbonation. Quite enjoyable.
