Picked this up a *long* while ago, as I've had it in my basement with the rest of my massive stash. Thankfully, this beer held up well over time as it was quite enjoyable and easy to quaff with a minimal amount of sediment left at the bottom of my pint glass. The dry-hopped nature of this beer led it to be incredibly smooth as the alcohol was well-hidden at the same time. Overall, this was one of LIC's better offerings that I've been able to obtain!

Of course, the pour was a dank, murky goldenrod with plenty of head to top it off. Lots of clingy lacing stuck to the side of my pint glass as I worked my way through this with a good amount of bubbles accompanying the liquid until the end of my session. Lots of dank hops, tropical fruit, and pineapple in the nose as the taste was a bit more earthy and pithy. Jackfruit, mango, passion fruit, and heavy citrus came through in the taste as it was heavy, but addicting, with enough juice in the mouthfeel from making this too murky for my palate. Sure, a chaser of water was needed to get this down but the garlic and scallions in the aftertaste kept this crisp and bright until the next sip, without allowing the flavors to fully fade away...

Yes, there was enough booze in this but it was not a deterrent as it enhanced the heavy-handed and understated hop presence of this beer. If you like your beers to be tropical, potent, and addicting, you've found your brew here. Canned on 2/17 of last year with "90 PITTED" written underneath it, this was a beer that packed a punch but kept you wanting another hit at the same time. Lovely stuff with an earthy hop profile that lingered long after the last bit went down...

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Yellow Session. Pale color, really hazy. Aroma is bright and hoppy with floral notes and tart fruits. Taste is light, fresh and hoppy with bitter finish. Really refreshing for a DIPA.

Looks murky, grayish yellow. Modern.

Smell isn't as strong as the rest of the beer. Got served in a water glass at a restaurant, so maybe it needs a tulip glass, to be fair.

Taste is awesome, a modern classic orange-grapefruit bittersweet IPA with long, full flavor. A little boozy for my personal taste, but it's an IIPA, so....

Feel matches taste: long and full. Nice oily feel coats tongue, nice carbonation.

Overall 4.5, maybe 4.75 if served in better glass?

L - hazy yellow/orange, not much head

S - passion fruit, super pungent fruity, lemon/lime, dank, hint of pancake batter

T - medium sweetness, medium minus bitterness, follows the nose with passion fruit and citrus

F - medium minus thickness, medium carbonation, not much burn

O - probably the best I've had from LIC, classic fruity NEIPA

Poured from a 32oz growler into a speilgau IPA glass.

Look is a hazy yellow with a frothy white head.

Aroma is intensely hoppy. Lots of citrus and mango right off the bat.

Body is thin but the taste is incredible. Lots of fruity notes. Amazing beer.
