Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on March 5, 2019. Milkshake style IPA brewed with mangoes, lactose and vanilla beans. Nice balance of sweet vanilla and tart mango.

Appearance - It must be the mango, because this beer runs darker in appearance and the other memes. And nice white head crowned the glass.

Smell - Sweet mango is in the nose but not as intense as I expected. The dankness of the Memes series is evident in the nose.

Taste - The mango comes to the front, and was very sugary sweet. It walks he careful line, but is not overly sweet. The mango lasted to the aftertaste carrying a dank backbone that lends a sense of balance. It was pretty straightforward to the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - The description of milkshake stoutvis accurate.

Overall - This and orange are the best memes to this point.

Poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a sturdy peach skin color with a fairly quickly dieing head that barely left any lace.
The aroma had smooth sweet juicy to peach skin tartness flowing over a light bitter ruby red grapefruit skin. Some papaya and mango sweetness flow over the grapefruit and peach-like qualities. Some sweet vanilla/creaminess at the end.
The flavor blended fairly nice all of those prior mentioned aromas fully bittersweet cutting in on the juicy fruit behavior and riding in on the aftertaste fairly smooth with just a touch of stickiness.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fairly good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt under as expected but yielded to a fine smooth juicy semi-bittersweet finish. ABV felt as projected.
Overall, as a New England styled milkshake DIPA, I have to say - it's definitely one that I would love to have again.

A pint can from the brewery release on 11/04/17 poured in their signature stemmed glass.

Look- Pours a cloudy pale orange like OJ producing a creamy finger of white foam. Some moderate lacing is left behind after slowly settling.

Smell- In a word? Juice! More precisely, mango, orange, pineapple, passionfruit and papaya.

Taste- Succulent mango, papaya, pineapple, passionfruit and orange zest.

Feel- Thin and pillowy soft with a slightly chalky dry finish.

Overall- This may be my favorite of the Memes series to date. It's a beautiful looking glass of succulent fruit juice with a scary easy drinking 9.4% abv. Be careful drinking this delight!
