Properly cloudy, hard to call an IPA from appearance but it certainly delivers where it counts.

Head is lacy and fades slowly. Mouthfeel is supple and well rounded, this beer has good body.

Floral, somewhat sweet flavours highlight apricot amongst the citrus tones. Very approachable NE style ale. But strong, so be careful!

I am not a bi fan of the style, but I could have Beezer more than once.
Had at LP ZooBrew, I tried to limit my AIPA intake to protect my tongue from feeling embalmed.
But glad that I selected Beezer. A very refreshing, fruity and balanced ale.
My first from Old Irving. I look forward to getting to their taproom.

One of the best hazy IPAs I've had in Chicago. Nose is great and taste is even better.

Had this on tap at Freedom Brothers. This was a really good NE IPA. It was tropical and cirtusy with notes of mango, grapefruit and lemon/lime. There was a bit of zest at the end but not any bitterness. Very nice full body and a well balanced beer.

Had Beezer poured from pint can, no date, into tumbler.

Lovely beer, with citrus rind hop bite to start and finish and mild citrus and malts between.

16oz can, no apparent freshness date. Opaque peachy colored ale is capped by a frothy beige head. Incredible aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, and pine. Excellent juicy hop flavors of mango, orange, grapefruit, lemon-lime, passion fruit, and pine along with a modest caramel and wheat maltiness. Full & creamy body, slightly resinous, balanced finish that is a bit tart. Great beer! I need more!

Unknown vintage (presumably late spring/early summer 2019); drank 7/4/19 @ the Yarchives.

Cloudy, dull orange/yellow appearance.

A violent pour yielded a nice off-white head; minimal, frothy lace.

Lemon, dry wheat & table sugar notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Lemon, table sugar & dry wheat flavors.

Below average new-school IPA stuff here; too dry & not flavor forward enough. Permanent pass.
