Orange juice appearance. Cloudy, slight foam/lacing. Juicy hop smell. Taste is juicy hops but with some bitterness, a little funky. Crisp, slightly mouth watering, pretty tasty.

16oz can from a buddy (thanks Eric!). Canned 11/19/18. Served in a Monday Night snifter. Enjoyed 12/21/18.

Pours a milky pale yellow with a tall, rocky off-white head. The froth recedes to a few surface wisps and an uneven bubbly crown.

Juicy aromas of citrus. Orange, grapefruit, lemon, tangerines and hint of biscuity malt.

Tastes mildly bitter with a good deal more citrus juice. Grapefruit, lemon, orange peel, melon, peach fuzz and some hop bread.

Pillowy body with snappy carbonation. Moderately bitter, citrus-laden aftertaste.

My first brew from Bearded Iris doesn’t at all disappoint. Tunnel Vision is a tasty NEIPA. Glad these guys are in Georgia now and I’m looking forward to trying more from them.

Pours ORANGE like the juice. Nose is citrusy and luscious, but not as heavy as I’d hoped. The taste however, wow! Super delicious and juicy. After taste lingers and softens slowly. Great beer by a great brewery!

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

Appearance: Arrives cloudy and golden/orange with a pretty strong head and some flashy lace

Smell: Mango, peach and melon tones with a back up of some tangerine

Taste: Fruit salad forward, with mango, peach and melon; through the middle, the tangerine adds a moderate amount of bitterness which lingers through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Another strong entrant into the Bearded Iris IPA stable - very much a strong suit for this brewery

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 2/26/2018. Pours opaquely hazy golden orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big tangerine, orange juice, lemon, grapefruit, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, orange juice, lemon, grapefruit, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, orange juice, lemon, grapefruit, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, biscuit dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, fairly sticky, and slightly resinous mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol for 6.8%. Overall this is a fantastic NEIPA! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Never aggressive, amazingly soft mouthfeel. Extremely juicy and fairly dank hop complexity; nice bready malt backbone, and not overly sweet/heavy. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Really hazy peach juice color with off-white head. Aroma is really juicy and fruity, also floral. Lots of overripe tropical fruits. Taste starts juicy with slightly tart orange notes, low hop bitterness on the finish. It has some astringent citrusy flavors along the more juicy notes. Full bodied with crisp carbonation. Really nice, juicy IPA, just a bit too astringent for my taste.

Tunnel Vision (DDH w/ Citra) is perhaps contender for a top IPA, in my opinion - I'd drink this side by side with DDH Pseudosue (my go-to) just about any day.

The head pours with a light white finger's width. It smells sweet and juicy. The taste and mouth feel are soft, juicy, sweet, and aromatic. It drinks very, very dangerously easy.

Tremendous. It's likely my favorite Bearded Iris beer thus far.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on March 29, 2018. Canned 03/20/18. The same lazer focus of Mosaic, Citra and El Dorado Oil now double dry hopped with Citra. Highly recommended.

Canned 12/22/17; drank 1/24/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a nice white head; a thick curtain of lace.

Pineapple, orange citrus, lemon, mild cane sugar & faint dry grass notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Orange citrus & lemon flavors up front; mild dry grass & faint cane sugar notes on the finish.

Fruity, soft with a mild dryness for balance; NE IPA excellence. Bravo!

Thanks goes out to Buck89 for this brew.

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 10/09/17

Poured into a Tree House glass a very nice cloudy yellow/orangy color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger white head, which also leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango, peach, melon), pretty nice little diesel like. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango, peach, melon), pretty nice little diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very tasty brew. Quite different than most from BI. Addictive! Orange Julius! Glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Thanks John!

Poured into a snifter. It has the typical hazy, slightly turbid appearance with a fluffy 2-finger white head. Zesty citrus on the nose - mainly lemon and orange. The taste brought the fruit but also brought some dank earthy tones. I do get the melon as well. Dry bready malt backbone and medium body. A soft feel with slightly more bitterness than their other IPAs but still on the soft side. Very nice.
