4.47/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

thanks to JLindros for hooking me up with a can of this.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice milkshake haze pale, pale golden straw with a good two finger creamy white head that fades to leave a light creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of papaya and green pineapples, little bit of doughy malt, flashes of oily citrus peel. Aromatic but not assertive.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice slightly musty papaya. Good soft tropical notes with slightly sweet tart pineapple. Good citrus juice and peel/oils. Lingering bitterness on the finish as well with great almost wine like characteristics that linger for a surprisingly long time. Quite dry and balanced. Delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, creamy, little fluffy with the alcohol hidden quite well.

O - Overall this was an incredibly enjoyable DIPA from Exhibit A, certainly one of the best hoppy offerings I've had from them. Just excellent use of hops here that are super balanced and harmonious. Great appearance and mouthfeel as well. Hopes to see this make the rotational lineup.

Canned 1/08/19
Pours a nice creamy rich thicker frothy 1 finger head head that retains well esp for the likely hop oils in there, some nice lacing, super cloudy murky basically solid color apricot orange-yellow color

Nose tons of juicy tropical hops, pineapple out front, papaya, guava, and mild juicy citrus in the middle, as well as a little stone fruit, also a little soft white wine and a bit grassy lemony, mild flaked wheat/oats creamy like doughy malt, not real alcohol presence

Taste starts similar with big tropical hops, a little dank and touch resinous with that big juicy pineapple, guava and a bit of papaya, rounding that is a soft Clementine or maybe Mandarin orange like citrus, also a little grassy and green hops but not that much, as well as mild pinot or sauvignon like soft fruit white wine coming with that mild musty dank character, creamy juicy base with some flaked wheat and maybe oats, full base malt supporting the hops without coming in too harsh, no over mineral characters or papery pulp or gristy malt like many NEIPAs tend to have, although it does get a little pithy but from the hops, mild bitterness increasing a touch on the very dry finish, but turning a little spicy and grassy late thanks to all the dry hops, and a flash of warming alcohol

Mouth is med bod, soft and juicy feeling, nice tingly carbonation and almost no alcohol tingle just a touch of warmth

Overall a very nice beer, quite enjoyable, incredible well done for a double NEIPA put together well with great balance, nice bitterness level, nice alcohol, no overly mineral or malt characters, and nice hop profile in general. A very well made beer, something that I've come to expect from Exhibit A.
