Grapefruit colored total milkshake look to this brew with a fading offwhite head, looks great. Thanks to my bro-in-law Todd for this one. Tropical and grapefruit notes are the main components of the nose...still going well here. The flavor does not disappoint. Citrus and tropical with the sweetness cutting most of the bite. Some heat on the end and a very slight lingering bite. Just enough carbonation and a medium thickness round out this beer. Pretty darn good brew here. Try this if you can.

From the can it pours a downright turbid golden orange color. A moderately large foam head retains well and then dissapates into a thick lathery film and yields lacing.

Very pungent fruit forward nose with hints of herbal and dank hops. It opens with aromas of tropical fruit juice, including pineapple, mango, papaya, and passion fruit. Aromas of stone fruit, particularly apricot and peach, serve as a nice compliment.

Lip smacking hops juiciness is well supported by a smooth and creamy oats and doughy malt backbone. Medium to full bodied with a moderate carbonation that is up to par with the flavors. Tropical and stone fruit flavors align with the aroma descriptors and taste like jammy marmalade. In addition, there are also zesty notes of grapefruit and orange. Good balance as there is a developing bitterness, a touch of alcohol spice and plenty of resiny and herbal spices. The finish is dry and resiny.

Fantastic IPA from Dewey Beer Co that combines the juiciness of NEIPA with the malt fullness and bitterness of old school DIPA.

16oz can served in a big snifter. I don't see a date on the can. Gift from @mr-jj.

Pours very hazy, light orange-amber with a medium to big head that fades fairly slowly to a dense ring. Smell is rich grapefruit, resin, and a little tropical juice.

Taste is really juicy, moderate sweetness, lots of resin bitterness to balance it out.

Mouthfeel is medium, almost chalky, resinous drying sensation. Overall, really nice.

Growler into pint glass. Pours an opaquely hazy burnt amber with a persistent off-white head. Initial impression is juicy orange, grapefruit, and pineapple, with a hint of caramel in the background - and, unfortunately, a pretty noticeable chemical taste. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy; carbonation is just about right. Finish is refreshingly bitter but again leaves a chemical residue. Not one I'd revisit.
