On tap at Cloverleaf Tap and Grill. Pours a golden effervescent hue with moderate frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile.

DATE: May 18, 2018... OCCASION: warming up after watching Michael's rec team finish a 13-5 victory... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... pours an opaque tangerine orange body which makes discerning effervescence impossible... the head is white, soapy foam that laces up the glass's side... this beer's pour is aggressively aromatic, with juicy orange, pineapple and mango challenged by light metallic hints, with butterscotch, ginger and caramel... an ultra-smooth, subtly understated mouthfeel at 8% ABV... lively, crisp and easily sippable--almost too much so... and yet, creamy too.... besides the onslaught of orange, pineapple, and lemon, this one packs in vanilla, sage, light pepper, and some other spices that engage the taste buds with strength... resin makes the profile even more worthwhile, and my first Icarus is a hit...

Very hoppy beer. Decent small and pour. Very drinkable, but frankly nothing fantastic compared to other offerings. Very similar to other New England IPAs.

Pours hazy yellow with a medium white head that fades to a thin white ring. Aroma is fruity/peachy and tropical. Taste is also tropical fruity but with solid hop bitterness. Feel is very good, smooth and coating. Overall this is a very good brew.

Holy olfactory explosion upon opening, Batman! Orange, pineapple, mango, lemon fill the area after you pop the top. Billed as a Double Dry-Hopped Imperial IPA, Yacht Juice pours an opaque honey orange color. Head is foamy white, but fades rather quickly. The mouthfeel on this beer is particularly notable, as it is at once creamy and crisp--a very good sipper for anyone's yacht. Initially a bit sweet on the tip of the tongue, but a bitter finish at the back of the palate adds to the allure. Well balanced, which is par for the course with Icarus, and at 8% ABV, it bears careful monitoring if you're hoisting sail, steering or up in the crow's nest. At home, two or three would make for a delightful afternoon, especially if there's BBQ around. Hopheads should rejoice, provided, of course, they drink it fresh, as advised.
