got a crowler from the source, poured the same day. this hazy is solid and doesn’t disappoint. the look and feel are strong. the taste is a bit average and the smell is subtle but still quite enjoyable to drink.
The beer pours a bright, hazy golden amber color with good head retention and considerable lacing. The nose is about what you'd expect given the hops used, and sure enough I pick up a decent amount of orange citrus and tropical fruit. The flavor profile replicates the nose, but with a bit more intensity than I was expecting. There's also some noticeable bitterness on the finish, so this isn't a complete fruit bomb. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full, with a fairly long, lightly bitter finish. Alcohol is very well integrated into the flavor profile, and I'm impressed by the clean finish in this beer. So drinkability is pretty darn good.
First things first, the damn thing just glows an ethereal yellow haze similar to Miriam Hopkins while pregnant - I mean, this thing is ready for Hollywood! Aroma is nice n all that, but let’s get to the money maker - the taste. And? Indifferent. Right off of the bat, this wild son of a gun wapow’s you with hella tropical fruits and melons more ripe than Jenny McCarthy’s rack during the 90’s. The only downside is a slight astringency in the aftertaste. Yeah, the astringency does bite you, but other than that, we have a solid offering here.
