16oz, canned 052919. [Galaxy, Mosaic]. A creamy ivory head caps a murky and opaque yellow-golden body. Orangey citrus, passion fruit and very faint pineapple for aroma. Hop forward flavors as expected, but it does have an intriguing nutty/oaty malt presence that I appreciate; passion fruit, grapefruit, kumquat, lemon-lime, and faint mint all present in the hop profile. Full and creamy body, hops are a bit hot, ample carbonation, and a moderate bitter and tangy finish. Love this on-going series; I'll never try them all, but they're always sure to be a hit.

Hazy, juicy looking body with a one-finger thick head, frothy and white. Grapefruit, orange and pineapple aroma. Nice and balanced taste of biscuit and citrus fruit; grapefruit; mildly tart and bitter. Heavy body; a bit watery yet relatively dry overall.

This is a nice IPA, definitely exhibiting an opaque haziness to the body with a fair head. Its strong point is the flavor blend, balanced and fairly complex without overdoing either the hop bitterness and citrus elements or its malt base. The beer won't push any boundaries at any level, but should satisfy any IPA lover no matter your preferred styling.

16 oz. Can
CANNED: 052919

Poured into a Trillium glass a very nice cloudy yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, peach, apricot), pretty nice diesel like. The taste is pretty nice hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, peach, apricot), pretty nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very nice brew. Orange Julius! Addictive! MilkShake! Nice to see it around here.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on June 27, 2019. Hazy Imperial IPA brewed with Galaxy and Mosaic hops. Juicy grapefruit notes. Feel is medium in body.
