Notes: An all-Citra double IPA with lactose. The newest installment in the Noisemaker-Attention Please! lineage – an all-citra + lactose DIPA that’s both soft and outspoken, but full of an intensely lush citrus hop burst.

Can dated July 12. Pours a golden hazy color with thin white head! Smell is mainly peaches and tropical fruit! Taste is Carmel malt balanced with tropical fruit! Feel is silky and smooth! Overall it’s good

One of my favorite new BI offerings in the recent past. Two week old can poured into a tulip.

Beautiful golden-orange body with a medium haze, but almost no head and zero lacing. The color and body are absolutely gorgeous, so I'd like to give it an extremely high "Look" grade, but the non-existent head hurts.

Big bursts of orange marmalade, guava, mango, tangerine, biscuit and pine out of the glass. A little grassy but very sweet.

Taste follows with sweet, juicy orange enveloping the tongue, some citrus medley, stone fruit, wheat cracker, and just a little grapefruit pith. Very sweet, as the lactose is clearly doing its thing. So you gotta like a sugary note with your hops, as there isn’t a ton of balance in this beer. But there’s certainly no green astringency in this BI offering, which has been an issue with a lot of their recent IIPAs, at least when fresh. And I'm liking the dank qualities.

Feel is soft, velvety, well-carbonated, and smooth. Medium-bodied. Luscious. Not boozy at all.

Probably falls into “milkshake IPA” territory on the tongue, though not the look, but I’m really liking it. Maybe not overly refined or complex, but extremely tasty and easy-drinking.

16oz can. Poured a very cloudy/hazy golden orange color with a small, white head of soft foam. It smelled of tropical fruits - mango, pineapple and guava. Sweet and fruity tasting with a noticeable mix of lactose.
