Raul is gonna give this the “Triple D” (no, not that show about that frosty tipped yokel), this one is in 3d cuz it’s Delightful, Decadent, and Divine! Believe that! You pour the damn sucker and you don’t need a nose as big as Karl Malden’s to know that you are getting yourself into something good. Hella tropical all over in your nostrils, then when this playa took a sip, they graced his taste buds.

I tell ya, folks, them peeps at Moonraker are dialed in like Tiger Woods on a porn star after a few Ambiens.

Yep!

Canned 3/15/19
L: Pours a murky honey yellow in color. Zero clarity, totally opaque. A standard pour yielded about a finger and a half of a stark white cap that dissipated rapidly. Generous amounts of lacing coats and clings to the glass and I partake.
S: Bubble gum, flaked oats, stonefruit, and orange. It is sweet, juicy, and inviting.
T: Tons of citrus character with a sweet bread flaked oats foundation. Orange, lemon, mango, pineapple and apricot seem to be the domineering forces behind the flavor profile. Very low bitterness with mild pine presence in the aftertaste. Green hop presence on the finish as well, balancing out the fruitiness.
F: Outstanding mouthfeel. Full bodied, medium weighted. Soft, creamy, pillowy and outright dreamy. Moonraker is putting in some work in terms of mouthfeel. This is fantastic. No abv detection.
O: Another stellar offering from Moonraker. The feel is enough to make me want to revisit. I am very grateful to have tried. Cheers!

Sweet tropical hoppy nose on this hazy. Taste follows with a creamy mouthfeel. This has a nice depth to it...I was expecting a little more complexity in the flavor profile Pineapple/tropical notes linger...

From a 16oz can, dated something illegible. I think the month says '02' and I'm pretty sure the year is '18.' The can says 'for optimum freshness drink this today!! So I did. Served in an IPA glass.

Pours a solidly hazy, dull, apricot-gold with a finger-and-a-half of soft, soapy lather. Retention is pretty good, leaving a solid, long-lived cap and collar and some thick but slippery lacing.

Fairly subdued nose of pineapple, orange juice and cut hay.

Taste is an interesting melange of juicy-sweet and mouth-puckering mineral tang. Guava and grapefruit, pear, peach and nectarine, grassy and tart with a little musty, oniony earthiness. Vanishingly low bitterness finishing with a slight acerbic pucker but otherwise very quick and clean.

Feel is thinly semi-juicy and medium-light bodied with fine, tingly carbonation and a sort of powdery feeling at the ending.

Overall, a nice clean and easy drinking... NEDIPA? From California? I'm going to go ahead and rate this to style as though it were an NEIPA because, by God, if I hadn't read the label, it wouldn't have occurred to me that it wasn't from across the river.
