Tunnel Vision DDH with CitraTunnel Vision DDH with Citra
Notes: Focus, focus. This IPA showcases a blurred-edge mouthfeel, multilayered juiciness of Mosaic and Citra, and a chewy, lemon starburst zing courtesy of El Dorado oil. This variant incorporates a double dry-hop of Citra, because why not more Citra?

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Cloudy, vibrant orange with a finger-and-a-half of yellowed head. Decent retention and nice rings of lacing.

Lots of white pepper, orange and mango in the aroma.

Zingy citrus flavors: sweets orange up front and some lemon in the finish. Slight Play-doh mid-palate. Light bitterness lingers in the aftertaste, bouncing back and forth between pill-like and pithy.

Full bodied and slick with zippy carbonation.

Solid NEIPA that doesn’t stand out much from the plethora of other solid NEIPAs available these days.

Pouring like orange juice in color with a white head. Nose almost makes the jaws tingle with pain, then makes the mouth water. Taste is everything that is good about NE Style IPAs. If a beer can be scrumptious this one is.

Date: From a crowler canned and consumed on 10/18/18.

Appearance: Milky yellow, total haze bomb, zero clarity, with a finger of fizzy white head.

Aroma: Mucho mango up front with the standard Bearded Iris oat stuffed backbone. There is of course other assorted citrus fruits including pineapple and orange. This double dry hopped version also adds a good amount of aermatics to the mix with additional green hop and herbal notes.

Taste: It is much the same as the nose with the sweet fruity and green hops up front before it turns somewhat bitter with oat malts. It has a fairly chewy mouthfeel, there is almost and imperial stout weightiness here. If I had to say anything negative about Bearded Iris, it would be that many of their beers seem like variations on the same base beer and for all I know, they might be. Personal prejudices aside, this is a nice beer, as every one I've had from them has been. I'm just not the biggest fan of oated IPAs, but if you are, then this is a quality beer.

Dull golden and hazy with a medium offwhite head, this brew looks good. Sweet citra nose is big and a solid A, I’m always so tempted by a tropical scent like this. Not bitter but not the best showing of these hop flavors. This is where this brew fails. The flavor just doesn’t live up to the nose, its got the appropriate sweetness but it’s just too muted and almost watery. No off flavors just not juicy. Decent carbonation but I just can’t get past this being too muted. Brewed on 11-12 so maybe I just waited too long at 2 months. Ah well.

Some BI are starting to showup in GJ.

Poured into a Tree House glass a pretty nice cloudy yellow/orangy color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, melon, nectarine), pretty nice little diesel like. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, melon, nectarine), 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. Addictive! Orange Julius! MilkShake!

Murky hazy yellow with a cream head. Melon, lime, peach, and mango fruited aromas with dry hops. Taste has a very dry complexion to the point it dries out the mouth: melon rind, lime zest, mango, some papaya and pineapple rind with super dry and airy hops. Body is dry, light, bright, airy, but is misses a true hop bitterness to bring it all home or juice up front. Been love BI, but this one is not for me

L - 1.5 finger yellowish fizzy head atop an opaque yellow body.

S - strong tangerine and pineapple, with a hint of herb.

T - follows the nose. Tangerine and pineapple, lemon, melon, earth, wrapped in dankness. Slightly dirty middle, with a touch of hop burn. Low bitterness. Low sweetness. Low booziness.

F - medium body with lower carb.

O - excellent fruit flavors.

This beer is expensive and highly overrated on this site. It doesn't have a good hop flavor. It isn't "dank," it's sorta sour. Overall, the flavor is best described as odd and a bit unpleasant. You can do a lot better for less money. I feel I'm being generous with my score, actually. It's one step up from a drain pour for me.
