I think I found the hop rainbow! Very citrusy and hoppy. Great overtones of grapefruit with a bitter hoppy aftertaste. Smooth taste and gentle on palette.

This is Chasing Rainbows Three, canned 10/2/2017. Poured pale orange, hazy with a fluffy off white head into a tulip. Great lacing. Sweet orange and grapefruit, florals on the nose. It's mandarin oranges, sweet grapefruit, mango and papaya, some faint graininess. The feel seems just a bit less cloudy and chewy but overall this is hugely drinkable. Lets face it, overall, the smell and taste is what sells beer and this nailed it.

Canned 2/6/17.

Poured from 16 ounce can into Bearded Iris tulip.

Hazy yellow/light golden. One finger white head that dissipates to nice ring. Some initial lacing but doesn't linger long.

Citrus and tropical fruits dominate the nose. Mostly passionfruit with some hints of peach.

Taste is citrus and tropical fruits with some grassy flavors.

Soft. Medium body. Light carbonation. Mildly bitter finish that lingers a bit.

Another very good NE style IPA from Bearded Iris.

L - 1-finger offwhite head atop a near-opaque orange body.

S - strong grapefruit, herb.

T - lovely grapefruit flesh with some bitter rind. Earthy middle, with a hint of dough and flowers. Moderate bitterness. No sweetness. Low booziness.

F - medium body and carb.

O - love the aggressive bitterness on this one.

16 oz can poured into pint glass canned on 2/6

A: Milky brown yellowish body very turbid body, almost no head just a small film.

S: papaya, honey, apricot, cantaloupe, some lemon, light yeasty smell

T: Lots of sweet mango, pineapple, honey, cantaloupe, and then lots of oats and grain cereal like taste.

M: Very chewy thicker bodied Low carbonation.

O: This is a pretty juicy fruity beer but the cereal grains taste is a little strong on the finish. Otherwise this is awesome, if you are anywhere in Nashville and you see Bearded Iris on tap it's going to be your best option.

Nailed the east coast hazy look. Taste is a little weak, flat finish. But the promise is there, should improve over time. This is more of a standard pale, I would like to try some DIPA's next.

Yazoo still owns Nashville, but Bearded Iris is coming on strong. Excited to visit both whenever I roll through town.
