Notes: The Beer industry has always relied on community, now more than ever. And since we can’t drink a beer together, we’ll BREW a beer together, but responsibly apart, to get us through these hard times. Social Distancing is a massive collaboration with some of our favorite folks in the industry!

Each collaborating brewery will be brewing up their own unique version of this DDH DIPA, so trust us, you're going to want to try them all!

4.01/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer is very hazy and a bit pale yellow in color. It poured with a short white head that left some specks of bubbles on the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of honeydew melon are present in the nose along with underlying notes of oranges and hints of grapefruit.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of honeydew melon along with hints of grapefruit. There is a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is exceptionally juicy and does a very good job at hiding any traces of alcohol from the taste.

4.31/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a milky murky pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate bright yellow + pale orange + pale golden yellow + apricot + peach colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense pillowy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy overripe tropical/mango + tropical/pineapple + citrus/grapefruit + tropical/papaya + honeydew melon + tropical/passionfruit + citrus/orange hops over the top of moderate aromas of biscuit + pale + honey + oat malts with a light to moderate amount of honey-like sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of biscuit + pale + honey + oat malts with a light to moderate amount of honey-like sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy overripe tropical/mango + tropical/pineapple + citrus/grapefruit + tropical/papaya + honeydew melon + tropical/passionfruit + citrus/orange hops which impart a very light amount of bitterness which fades away very quickly leaving big lingering tropical + citrus hop flavors.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of soft/fluffiness mid-body and a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasantly soft/fluffy mouthfeel. Very enjoyable with big tropical + citrus hop flavors and aromas. I could easily have a couple of these - delicious.

3.92/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Cloudy yellow with a sudsy cap and lacing. Mango, papaya, grapefruit, melon and mild earthy and vegtable hops but has a strange rubber aroma in there too the detracts. Super ripe version of the smell fruits plus pear, lemon, bubblegum, and almost a dry champagne yeast, with mild onion hops. Super strange all together but I dig it. The feel is very familiar: juicy to dry by the finish, bright, gets airy through the sip and decently dank feeling.

4.35/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a very hazy orange color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves nice lacing.

Smells of ripe mango, melon, papaya with lighter citrus notes.

Tasted follows the nose with the honeydew melon dominating in a good way. It’s sweet but the backend of citrus helps balance. Zero booziness for such a big beer.

Mouthfeel is medium full with a nice amount of carbonation. This is an easy drinking, dangerous beer.

Really good and hits all the marks. Highly recommend.

Generously double dry hopped with mosaic, enigma, strata and citra hops. Notes of ripe pineapple, mango, mellon and tropical citrus fruits. Amazingly smooth, no alcohol detected with such a high ABV. Delicious DIPA NEPIA!
