This Double IPA is loaded with waves of some of the juiciest hops available. Citra, Mosaic, Columbus blend together to make this hop juice. Intentionally left hazy with yeast in suspension to create a soft mouthfeel and enhance the flavor of this wonderfully hoppy beer.

Tasted at the MSP airport at Stonearch. Typical hazy ipa dark yellow hue. Smell a bit refined but good aroma of oranges and the mosaic/citra blend is there. A slight bite on the front end but it is a DIPA so expected and the alcohol is well hidden. Nice smooth intake and not too much carbonation. Great beer on my layover!

Milkshake cloudy with an amber color. Moderate but dense head that never fully recedes. Wider streaks on the glass as the tasting proceeds.

Very good blend of slightly sweet pale malt with a floral and slightly spicy hop nose.

The malt portion has some lactose sweetness. More bitter than creamy sweet, these flavors last throughout the tasting, with the hop biting the most in the swallow. There's also a strong alcohol presence in the swallow. The body leans rich but the carbonation is a bit high as well. Long aftertaste.

Very hazy orange look with some yeast specks. Smell is strong tropical and dankness. One of my favorite brews. Sweet juiciness & a nice strong juicy hop bitterness that lingers. Very happy to have this gem available from Big Lake, MN down here in FL.

Hazy, medium golden orange color. Slightly tart, citrus aroma. Medium bodied, with the bite of citrus peel astringency, to the taste. A bit thin in taste and finish.

I cannot believe such a big flavor comes from such a small can. Great tropical notes on the nose. Pours like fresh squeezed OJ and even had that kind of consistency. So smooth - the hop profile is so balanced and amazing. So crushable even at 9%ABV.
