Tunnel Vision DDH with CitraTunnel Vision DDH with Citra
Notes: Focus, focus. This IPA showcases a blurred-edge mouthfeel, multilayered juiciness of Mosaic and Citra, and a chewy, lemon starburst zing courtesy of El Dorado oil. This variant incorporates a double dry-hop of Citra, because why not more Citra?

This beer pours a yellowish shade of orange and is turbid. It is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves spotty lacing.

Slight medicinal smell. Some citrus

Medicinal and citrus flavor

Medium bodied and creamy mouthfeel

Three months old and really tasty. Cloudy, tan/dirty orange, mild head and lacing. Nose is strong citrusy notes of orange and lemon. Taste is not as strong as the scent, but still juicy and citrusy. Lighter bodied, mild boozy presence, mouth watering. I like it.

I am trying this beer off the tapper at the Daily Growler in Powell, Ohio. I assume its the Citra DDH version....based on the scent. It poured a hazy golden with thin white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had wonderful citrus peel notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bright citrus fruit peel presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its another solid beer from the Iris!

Rerated on 3/13/22 - lowered mouthfeel from 4.0 to 3.75. A fine beer but there is some chalkiness to this one.

Poured from a can dated 35 days out. Poured with decent amount of head that diminished quickly. Great flavor and feel but as the beer sat, the bitterness increased upfront and on the backend.

Pours a hazy golden. It's got a weird artificial chalky candy aroma. It's got lots of grapefruit, some plasticky artificial fruit character. It's a bit muted and muddled and honestly doesn't really express Citra in its best form. Not my favorite.

A - Hazy pale orange body, no transparency but some translucence. White head, short at about half an inch, but pretty persistent, fading to an 1/8" cap. Lots of line lacing, small bubbles scattered over the glass.

S - Big bright citrus foremost, lemon and grapefruit, orange as well, with just a bit of pith.

T - Clean citrus juice in the open, a mild malt sweetness below, and a sour and pithy bitter bite in the close.

M - Strong carbonation, mild weight, slightly dry finish with just a bit of lingering resin build over time.

O - Superb. A lovely, delicious IPA, with lots of hop fruitiness and a bit of dry bite in the finish. Quite enjoyable.

Have had this beer so many times I've lost count.
Sometimes you forget that there's a gap in your reviews.
This 16 oz can was born on 2/23/21 and I'm pouring it into a BIBCO Willie Beecher tonight.

Glowing medium blonde-gold juice with a creamy cap of 2 fingers, leaving connected lacing as it recedes.

Sweaty Citra hop and a touch of spoilage already from the can, perhaps this batch had a little oxygen contact. From the glass it's less prominent, and I get more classic Tunnel Vision - orange sherbet, lime sherbet, doughy malt, and lemon grass.

Flavor is better than the last batch I had in October. Orange and lime sherbets, white grapefruit, pleasant grassy bitterness, and a bit of lemon water. There's a distinct edge to this beer, it's very sharp and direct.

Feel is semi-hard, with heavy carbonation, still a decent amount of acidity/juice, and no alcohol heat in sight. Ends crisp and dry.

Tunnel Vision is a beer I nearly always pick up when I am down in Tennessee. It's a surefire beer and one I'll keep purchasing. Belches are tiny lemon bombs. Amazing.

16oz can poured into a snifter

A- pours a hazy orange color with a one finger foamy white head that reduces to a ring

S- dank nose with aromas of hemp, orange pulp, grapefruit zest, a hint of pineapple

T- juicy and zesty citrus up front with notes of grapefruit and tangerine, mid palate gives a hint of pine, the finish gives more citrus zest

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into the finish

Picked up a single from the Craft Beer Hop Stop cooler 11-7-20 for $3.99. Canned 10-12-20; consumed 2-17-21. Cold stored since purchase.

Beer poured a hazy golden orange with a beautiful long lasting white head.

Nose is nice, citrus forward but nothing overly pungent.

Taste is very nice, lighter pale malt base allows grapefruit and orange to shine thru. Finishes with a nice pine and rind bitterness; 8/10 on my scale.

Mouthfeel is delightfully light; very easy sipping and refreshing.

Overall another excellent brew from BIB!

Dull golden and hazy with a medium offwhite head, this brew looks good. Sweet citra nose is big and a solid A, I’m always so tempted by a tropical scent like this. Not bitter but not the best showing of these hop flavors. This is where this brew fails. The flavor just doesn’t live up to the nose, its got the appropriate sweetness but it’s just too muted and almost watery. No off flavors just not juicy. Decent carbonation but I just can’t get past this being too muted. Brewed on 11-12 so maybe I just waited too long at 2 months. Ah well.

16 oz can, canned 11/12/20. Pours very hazy golden orange with a medium frothy white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet tropical fruit with some dank hops in the background.

The flavor is sweet tropical fruit with medium dank hop bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice NE IPA.

16 fl oz can purchased in Colorado (4-pack/$14.99 USD plus tax):

Citra is well showcased. Has a powdery soft mouthfeel to cushion any citric acidity. Passionfruit, orange, orange pulp, orange juice, lemon citrus, subdued hop oils, melon.

A well balanced expression of the style with a nice hop profile. Very easy drinking.

No, it doesn't hold a candle to something like Kern River's Citra if we're focusing on the best Citra-hopped IPAs, but it does set itself somewhat apart from the pack in terms of the Mosaic & Citra hopped IPAs flooding the market. Nice work from Bearded Iris, but the $15/4-pack pricetag will keep me from buying it again especially since Deschutes' Fresh Squeezed is ~$11/sixer and better executes the Citra/Mosaic hop profile.

Low B (3.53) / GOOD

16 oz. can. Canned 11/12/20, opened 12/26/20.

Pours standard medium-hazy orange with a finger of white head.

The nose is orange candy, lemon, and light minerality, and the taste mostly follows. Notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon, and lightly dry bitterness. Simultaneously juicy and crisp. Reminiscent of grapefruit juice and lemon Italian ice. Hints of green hop intensity even with 6 weeks in the can.

The mouthfeel is medium for the style with dry lemon rind impressions on the finish.

Overall, very nice. Recommended if you like a lightly dry, lemon-forward hazy IPA.
