Reddish appearance with slight white head that disipates quickly. Aroma is a grapefruit with a slight hops. Taste is a fairly prominent grapefruit with slight hops and is vary appealing.

What is this creature?? So good. A creamy, tarty DIPA.

16oz can dated 1/17/18 poured into large snifter “I JUST BLUE MYSELF”

Pour Has I tiny bit of frothy head and looks like chilled beet soup(kvass). Nose is vinous with hints of sugared raspberries. Taste is smooth muddled blueberry and grape with a creamy vanilla hop juice finish. Not sure what rainbows taste like, but I guess this is it.

This one pours a light and hazy bluish-pinkish color, with a small foamy head, and lots of lacing.

This smells confusing, with creamy blueberry, vanilla cream, lactose, grapefruit, and pine.

This has a really creamy and nice feel, with slightly tart blueberry flavors, vanilla and lactose, and a light zesty bitterness on the finish. I'm not sure it really needed to be an IPA, but I like it nonetheless.

This is medium bodied, and super creamy, with a good level of carbonation.

This is a nice but super weird and confusing beer.

Blueberries, Smooth but a little bite from the hops. Overall very good first try at a fruited IPA.

From a can, poured into a tulip. This beer has a striking look - a bright purple plum color with the turbidity of tomato soup. A small head formed on the pour but quickly disappeared with no trace left behind. Big blueberry aroma that was supported with some dank resin and also some citrus. It honestly tastes like a blueberry smoothie, but without much sweetness and no vanilla. The lactose is there and the body is fuller than most of their beers, but it doesn't approach the "milkshake" category. This is more like an IPA than those, with a firm bitterness that blends well with the blueberry flavor. There is a slight tartness on the finish from the fruit but it also plays well with the flavors. I'm looking forward to the other variations.
