4.18/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

16 oz can from brewery room floor, 3/8/21, into Parish Teku.

West Coast appearance with a little haze, with a creamy cap of 1 finger, leaving lace generously.

Strong aromas of ripe cantaloupe, fresh pine, grapefruit, caramel malt, martini onion, strawberry/kiwi, oatmeal with honey and brown sugar, and slight sweat. Kinda west-coast-ish but a tad sweeter.

Flavor is clean and not funky, which lends itself to be a dangerous drinker. It wants to go straight to your belly. Bright strawberry, candied orange, honey, tea, mango, drunk pineapple, pine, onion, and slight diesel. Again, very west-coast but with the addition of honey and strawberry - and never harsh.

Feel is wet and crisp, and the alcohol heat is there but not nearly what you'd expect. Drinks like Homestyle. (6%.) The beer is just damn dangerous.

Overall, a hot diesel orange-tea pine bomb ninja IIIPA that really should be approached with caution. Before you know it you'll be taking off your underwear.

Price paid : $18.99 / 4 pack

A nicely hazy golden orange color with a sudsy bone white head, there’s a hefty candied orange note and a lot of mango on the nose. Very nice.

That candied orange note is prominent on the taste, and the mango is angling for its place in line as well. There’s also a nice pineapple flavor, which provides some balance.

At 9.8% ABV, I figured this would be a one and done for me, but I’ve worked my way through two pints and can still (relatively) function. What a pleasure this is to drink.

This is a taste beer from Nashville that packs a punch. It possesses a lovely appearance and full flavor. The hops hit you up front while the gravity taps you from behind.

16 oz can poured into a snifter. A very hazy yellow-gold color with a medium sized white head. Great aroma - oranges, tangerines, mango, and slightly sweet malt. The taste followed with the tropical notes above and a mix of earthy resin. Soft bitterness. Slightly sweet on the finish from the ABV, and it was a bit hot on the finish. Overall enjoyable.
