this is epic! one of the more creative and thoughtful lactose and vanilla hazy ipas i have ever had, and one of the most refined. this is a style i roll my eyes at every time, but this beer really is incredible. i think the rice makes a ton of sense in it, you get some of that starchiness but not the heft with it, and no residual sugar from it, allowing a little lactose to go a long way, its not overdosed here like it so often is. there are two other things i really dig about it as well. the first is the guava, its fresh and natural, tropical and sweet, and for once not crowded out by more robust and obvious fruit flavor like passion fruit or pineapple like it so often is, it stands nicely on its own here. secondly, the hop profile is perfect for the fruit and the vanilla, el dorado leading the way along with some others, notes of melon and rock candy and lime even, all perfectly compatible in here. i taste everything all at once, except the vanilla, which sets in a little later, helping this finish a little richer and more desserty, and with the obvious rice in here, this does have a mochi outside element to it, pretty impressive concept and execution all up. the key here is that the fruit and vanilla are natural, nothing is forced, and the proportionality is perfect. i love the hops too. really well done here, better than almost anything else i have had in this style...

16 oz can, thanks for picking this up bro- Pours very hazy straw golden with a medium sustaining white head. Aroma is wow, juicy as all hell, mango, banana, papaya, grapefruit, tangerine, tropical galore. The taste is similar, all those tropical fruits, with a nice bitterness mellowing things out, light hop presence but it's enough to stop it from being just juice here. Damn fine tasty beer. Yum
