American IIPA brewed with Simcoe and Citra. Poured from a can into a Goose Island tulip. The pour is slightly hazy and light amber with a nicely-formed crown of white foam that has good retention. On the nose I get fresh tropical fruit notes like oranges, peaches, pineapples, lemon, and grapefruit.

Medium body with an oily feel. The flavor follows the nose well, though it is a little sweeter than I anticipated. Ample bready malt up front supports the barrage of tropical fruit flavors from the hops. All the oranges, pineapples, and lemon promised by the nose arrive in short order. The hops never get out of control and the balance is superb. It doesn't taste bitter at all, just juicy. Finishes with oranges, pineapple, and some honey.

Another fantastic IPA from Bearded Iris. First there was Homestyle, then Scatterbrain, and now this. All 3 have been very impressive. So grateful these beers are available where I live.

Wowza New England style IPAs. Bearded Iris has done it again. This beer pours a golden, hazy orange color. Nose is citrusy and luscious. Taste is heavy of the same citrus notes, but hops kick in at backend. Great follow through on taste.

To every yin, there's a yang. Therefore theres a floral for every earthy. And this is the harmony that the Bearded Iris team applies to their bold and hazy IPA with the irresistible fruitiness of citra hops along with the bitter earthiness of Simcoe for a beer that's balanced and complex.

Rich aromas of citrus abound along with a tangy scent of exotic tropical fruit. Herbal and grassy, a light pungent aroma of hemp radiates from the glass. Off Beat brings an old school aroma with hay, grasses and grapefruit although the ale is hazy with the appearance of whipped buttercream. Its lacy froth invites a taste that bursts on the palate with a pastry sweet honey, poundcake and taffy.

With the sweetness slowly fading, the taste of hops permeate the creaminess of grain with a cleansing taste of citronella, lemon and orange, with a kiss of lime. Sherbet-like in taste, the beer's creamy sweetness is softly gelatin-like before a brisk taste of passionfruit, kiwi and papaya bring a tropical medley that suggests tropical fruit punch. Creamy and milky in texture, the late palate is modestly bitter with a smooth and herbal finish of cannabis and chive.

White grapefruit and a fresh grassiness comes with a smooth bite to close the session while a medium length aftertaste of pulled candy and herb leave lasting memories on a savory IPA that's still quite crisp, clean and refreshing, and with a sprucy gin-like spice to exit the palate.

On tap at the source. Turbid bright golden color with a creamy white head. Big citrus and resin yet aroma. Taste followed with bright grapefruit, pine, resin, etc. pillowy soft feel. Typical great Bearded Iris.

Poured into a Tree House glass a very nice cloudy orangy color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-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, grapefruit, mango, peach), pretty nice diesel like. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, peach), pretty nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a pretty tasty brew. Addictive! Orange Juilus! Glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Thanks John!
