Appearance: Pours with a cloudy amber color and a one finger head; spotty lacing

Smell: Tropical fruit, dominated by pineapple; hints of citrus

Taste: Pineapple forward with citrus building through the middle; the bitterness has a slightly grassy character, as well; relatively dry finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: Another nice IPA from Bearded Iris

Biggie Biggie Biggie, can't you see, this is one of the best beers in BI History

Yeah I rhymed

Delicious beer. Very smooth, hops don't overpower. Surprisingly creamy.

Canned 1/3/18; drank 1/24/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a big, bright white head; a thick curtain of lace.

Peach, fresh soap, mild sugar cane & faint dry grass notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Honeydew melon & mild fresh soap flavors up front; dry grass notes on the finish.

Not my favorite hop profile, but this is a well made NE IPA that I still found myself enjoying. I'd have another.

I get worn out by the amount of unfiltered IPAs coming out of Nashville breweries, so I quit trying them. Im glad a buddy left a can of this at my place because I would not have tried it otherwise. Very smooth IPA with a creamy yet very surprising peppery finish that really surprised me. Friendly bitterness that plays well off a balanced brightness of citrus and passionfruit. Great IPA for non IPA drinkers. These guys always put out a quality product - its just that Im tired of the unfiltered IPAs coming out of Nashville. THAT SAID: Im glad i was able to taste this brew - its really pleasant and an easy drinker. this is my new go to from the Bearded Iris lineup. Cheers!

Incredible... Pineapple and orange juice.... Murky....pungent hops... Smooth finish... Bearded Iris brings it every time and this surely doesn't disappoint... Highly recommended!

Poured from a can into a snifter. Typical turbid bright yellow color with a frothy white head. Bright aroma with tropical fruit, pineapple, and faint earthy notes. Slightly bitter pineapple juice on the palate along with other fruity notes and some grassy notes. Prickly carbonation but a soft feel. Dry and slightly astringent on the finish.
