3.82/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy gold producing a large, foamy, lasting, bone white head that leaves abundant Jack Frost lacing on the sides of the glass and a nice surface cap and collar. Aroma and taste are both a balanced blend of malt and hops. Wheat, light caramel malt, fruity yeast, tropical and citrus hops. Smooth with a light bitterness up front which intensifies in the finish and aftertaste it is exactly what it was intended to be: a wheat ale/IPA hybrid. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with moderate-high carbonation, smooth and so creamy I think there may be oats in the malt bill. Good but not great.

Outstanding Hybrid IPA Wheit Beir. Cracked open the can and smells like a regular IPA. First thing to hit your pallet is some tropical notes of Mango, Guava, Passion fruit, Grape Fruit and Citrus. The overall flavor is rich and tad malty. The hops really shine through and give off a pleasant bitterness that doesn't linger. There is a distinct flavor that Scofflaw has in all its beers that I cant put my finger on but it contributes to its signature flavor. I believe you could point out Scofflaw in a blind taste test. The mouth feel is super creamy and full bodied. Absolutely in love with all scofflaw Beers.

I mean it’s fine. For me I enjoyed it and will enjoy the other five from the case but I won’t go out of my way to find it or buy again. Honestly many people love Scofflaw and I’m just kind of out on all their beers.

Tropical flavors, nice ipa taste happiness so a solid mix. Wasn’t a huge fan of the after taste or the overall taste the further I got down the can.

I’m not gonna get all heady about the description and mouth feel and blah blah blah. If you want a great tasting summertime citrusy beer then Scofflaw Dirty Beaches is a great choice for sharing a few with your buddies. You just can’t go wrong with Scofflaw...all their beer is delicious.

Excellent head production and even better retention, leaving behind wide flat fields of white lacing. Body is a pulpy, opaque, dark mango color.

Tropical and citrus hops dominate the profile, alongside grainy caramel malt. Very little suggests "wheat ale," with more of an IPA sense to the nose.

Flavor is similar: it's bright, hoppy, juicy, and lightly tangy - with a profile quite similar to Scofflaw's Basement IPA. The wheat significantly adds to the mouthfeel, though, with a smooth, lively, creamy presentation right in line with the style.

Reminds me a little of a Lagunitas IPA, probably use similair hopps. If you like wheats and IPAs, Dirty Beaches is thier lovechild. The floral hopps reduce the bitterness. Overall, I like it, but I don't give high score easily. I have 5 more to enjoy! Purchased 6-pack in cans at the Pig in Hoover Alabama.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Odd oily gold body, hazy and heterogenous coloring, inch of white head
Caramel, pine, malt, citrus
Malt, biscuit, orange peel, wheat
Medium body, a little gritty
Let it be known that this six pack originally rang up at $52.99 but came down to $2.99 (!) with my kroger card. that's great savings. decent beer, well balanced, but not much character

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce can - $2.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, orange-gold body with a full flush and rush of off-white foam.

Smell: Tangy-scented, lightly citrusy leaning a bit citric with a note of glazed wheat and baked pear.

Taste: Pale malts and malted wheat with a pop of sweetness and a juicy, acidic, tangy pop of fruitiness on its heels. Flecks of pomelo, lemon and a nibble of passion fruit and pear. Medium bitterness. Slight, slender resiny, spicy hint creeps in. Stays a jumble of tangy fruitiness through the soft finish, still a bit bitter and with a small sense of alcohol warmth to it.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Strikes me more as an IPA with wheat in its malt bill (as so many of them do nowadays) than an easy-going albeit structured, fruit-forward wheat ale.
