This was my second Old Irving beer, with the award-winning Beezer being my first.

Wonderful aroma of citrus and mango with a solid balance of carb and juice. The finish was a bit on the dry side for me, but I enjoyed it overall. As a matter of fact, I may have another one today.

Released 12/6/19; drank 1/5/20 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dull orange/yellow appearance.

A violent pour yielded a HUGE off-white head; a thick curtain of tree-rung lace.

Orange peel, wheat & mild grapefruit notes in the nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel.

Orange peel & dry wheat flavors up front; dry grapefruit & faint cream notes on the finish. No booze heat.

This was a bit dry for me; not awful, but not one to track down either.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on September 2, 2019. A double dry hopped Double IPA brewed with Galaxy, Mosaic and Motueka hops. Delicious.
