Notes: Our big homie Yakima Chief Hops plugged us with the freshness in the form of their new Bio-T Cryo Blend. As you may know, we like our dry hop additions to make sexy times with our yeast, and this blend was formulated specifically with that in mind. That new new Bio-T along with healthy portions of our Hand-Selected Citra & Mosaic for maximum juice extraction. Hit the link in bio for that good good.

4.21/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy whitish yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving lots of specks of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of pineapples are present in the nose along with notes of gooseberries.
T: The taste follows the smell and has a blend of flavors of pineapples and gooseberries.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer does a very good job at masking any traces of alcohol from the taste.

Serving type: can

Now THIS is a f'kn BLACKSTACK IPA.

As oppose to some weaker IPAs from them lately, such as "thread count" and "promise ring", THIS is back in the saddle alongside behemoths such as "2 ON", "WAVY", and "LOUD PACK".
Pours surprisingly bright for the smell. Smells like heaven, like you just want to EAT the beer. That undeniable BLACKSTACK STANK is right in there. Delectable. The taste is very pure -- COULD be a little more complex, I suppose, but it more than makes up for that in PURITY. Mosaic and Citra, I believe. Very pure HAZY IPA. What it may minorly lack in complexity, it more than makes up for in PURITY, TIMELESSNESS, and CRUSHABILITY. 9%? Nobody would be the wiser if they'd said 8. The FEELS are on point too. This one seems to perhaps be inspired by their recent collaboration with The Brewing Projekt, in that it has that food-like quality of thickness, but that element is more tamed than it is with TBP. More balanced. And I absolutely adore TBP. But Blackstack just nailed it here. So pure. Very VERY sacred nectar.
