Pour yellow hazy like a dark stout but yellow. Thin head sticks at top throughout. A bit sour in taste, little carbonation at the end. Not super drinkable because it’s heavy. Not a thin crisp beer but a creamy kinda bitter sour hoppyness taste. I like the fullness of this beer but that’s what makes it less easy drinking. Which is fine.

Creamy, cloudy, orange/yellow look.

Mildy citrus aroma, a hint of pine.

Tastes like it smells, citrusy moderately sour and a grainy finish.

Textbook dipa, continues to stand up in comparison to anything new England breweries throw at it.

Murky, opaque, medium-gold color with a coupla fingers of head on top and lotsa messy lace left behind... Aromas of mild floral citrus preview a delightful sweet grapefruit fruit smoothie of a beer - lush, plush, moderately sweet, mildly bitter, and without much tartness or tang - which I really dug - like sweet, creamy grapefruit pith juice... 10/31/18 canning...

Delicious creamy DIPA. Tastes like pineapple mango goodness. Really good beer I rank a step above The Cat’s Meow which is another solid offering from Exhibit A

An incredibly smooth DIPA. Exhibit A has some fantastic offerings and Hair Raiser is no exception.

Bought a can at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow. Beer pours with a dark yellow and murky appearance with a thin head. Piney orange citrus aroma. Taste follows the nose but had some more mango flavors too. Nice carbonation. Overall, good overall.

This beer makes me want to delete my Facebook account without downloading any of my photos while listening to Motorhead as loud as my stereo will go! Super hazy, golden in colour. Definitely on the sour side. This is a double IPA and it could give a [email protected]$k! Which is why I like I it so much!

Brew looks really hazy with yellow orange color. Looks like a glass of pineapple juice. Smell is mild and fruity. Taste is fruity with a little bit of almond. Even a little sour like a mild creamy grafefruit. Not bad but too sour for me. 13oz draft $8 @ The Fix in Worcester, MA.

Canned 13 days ago.

L -- Very hazy gold body with a finger of soapy white head produced with moderate pour. Decent retention and lacing
S -- Dank tropical goodness. Lots of citrus, pineapple, mango, creamsicle, and also a little dusty woodsiness
T -- Grapefruit peel, unripe mango, grassy woodsiness, orange pith
F -- Moderately fluffy and pleasantly hop-oily. Some bitterness on the finish, but a lot of it flies off the palate
O -- Another excellent hoppy offering from Exhibit A. Just behind Cats Meow for me

86/100

Dated 4/19/18 "Dinner likes Canada" on the bottom of the can, 6 days old.

Pours an opaque dirty gold in the glass with two fingers of creamy off-white head. Nose starts off with soft tropical fruits, papaya, over-ripened mango, guava, pink grapefruit rind, earthy dankness, resin, sweet nutty malt and a slight pine. Taste follows the nose with a balanced mix of tropical fruit and earthy nutty tones, not as impactful as the nose. Additional notes of peach and melon in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a silky medium, going down incredibly easily. None of the 8% ABV detectable. Low dryness and bittering. Had this a few months ago, about a month old and the malt was a bit strong for me, but this one is wonderful. If I can get it fresh, it's a go to brew.
