Notes: It feels like a fitting day to be canning this paradox. Distopian Dream Girl is the single version of the first Double IPA we ever brewed, Built to Spill. Brewed with copious quantities of Galaxy and Citra, it treats you to a mélange of citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Inspired by the influential band that has blasted through the brewery speakers more than any other, it seemed appropriate to work with another artist from Boise, when developing the can art.

Now based out of Portland Maine, we first worked with Heidi Geist when she put together an art installation for the brewery more than a year ago. Since then, we have become friends, running into each other at festivals and events whenever possible. It was only a matter of time until we collaborated on a label. When she announced the 48 Beer Project, the starts aligned. We couldn’t be more thrilled with how this one came out. Thank you Heidi.

For those of you who aren’t aware, the 48 Beer Project is a solo exploration into beer and the surrounding culture, across America. Heidi is stopping in each state to collaborate with a brewery on label art and get an intimate look at the local scene.

Heidi, we hope you enjoyed your time in Vermont as much as we enjoyed having you. Good luck on the rest of your journey!

Pours a hazy pale orange with soft, fluffy head.

Smell is juicy and sweet with notes of overripe stonefruit, mango, orange and some banana.

Taste is juicy, crisp and slightly perfumey. Notes of citrus, pineapple and peach. Soft bitterness with a slightly mineral finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and well carbonated.

Overall, a very nice IPA, soft and easy to drink.

Poured into a 13 oz Foam Brewers tulip glass canned on 7/30/2020. Pours a hazy yellow orange with a finger plus sticky white head that leaves a thick collar of foam as it slowly settles. 4.75

Smell cantaloupe, pineapple, mandarin, and apricot. Very nice. 4.25

Taste follows cantaloupe, mandarin, pineapple, and apricot really balanced and tasty. 4.25

Mouthfeel is bigger than medium, a little sticky but not dry, soft gentle carbonation, and at 7% ABV drinks a tad bigger, but extremely drinkable. 4.5

Overall this is a very nice NEIPA that before I checked to see the ABV I thought I was drinking a NEDIPA. They rarely miss. 4.25

16 oz. can.
Canned 05/14/20.
Near vigorous pour (not quite straight down) yields an inch and a half white head over a very cloudy, straw-colored body with some lacing. Quite floral nose with traces of citrus and tropical fruit. After a few minutes the floral fades, letting the citrus take over and kick the tropical fruit to the curb. Taste is white grapefruit, ruby red grapefruit, and lemon while finishing with citrus rind and pith. Good feel and overall, an easy drinking 7% IPA while being a Hazebro's dream! Cheers to Foam!
