4.13/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Excellent head production; good retention with nice lacing. Body is lemon yellow and hazy, but not opaque.

Aroma is a nice blend of pale malts, bright herbs, and both tropical and citrus tones.

Similar translation to the palate. It fits with other Lord Hobo (I)IPAs: sweet, smooth, and juicy, without neglecting the malt base. Fairly low bitterness. Mango and pineapple are perhaps forefront, with touches of bright herbs, mandarin orange (without any citric bite), honey, peach.

Lively and very smooth on the palate.

If this brew came out 10 years ago, it would have been nothing shy of revolutionary. As it is, it's delicious, but nothing particularly unique.

Poured from a 16oz can into a Guinness pint glass.

Look is a bright hazy IPA with a white head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is bright herbs lemon.

Taste matches aroma, bright pithy lemon hops.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

poured from 16oz can on 3/22/20 stamped b.o 2/26/20, hazy straw color
not much on the nose, faint citrus, faint pine
At the front, taste is slightly sweet, citrus, lemon, grapefruit, hint of orange and pine, with some bitterness at the back
Smooth, very light bodied for a DIPA, easy to drink
Quite an unusual DIPA. Apparently it is hopped with Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe, using a whirlpool and dry hopped method, to make this IPA less bitter. It tastes like it is an experiment. It may take some getting used to
