3.96/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Canned on date of 4/25/19. Enjoyed on July 2, 2019.
Pours a color of orange juice with the pulp. Tiny bubbles of carbonation. Back end pour yields sediment and floaties. Nose is Tropical fruit with a bit of dankness. Also citrus rind. Taste is hoppy, tropical fruits, varieties being guava, papaya, lychee, kiwi?, pineapple. Some dankness and herbal notes on the finish. Also notes of oranges, lemon, citrus rind. Mouthfeel is medium with a dry, sticky finish. It's a pretty good beer, but I would not buy again due to the price point - $18.99 for a 4 pack of 16 oz. cans.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pale orange in color with a milky, murky, unfiltered appearance. Poured with a short, creamy white foam with medium low retention. Bready malt aromas with mellow tropical fruit, melon, light floral and boozy notes and. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation. Silky smooth feel with expanding boozy warmth. Flavors are similar to aromas. Malty flavors up front followed by melon, papaya, and mellow fruity flavors. Medium light bitterness through the middle. Over rioe citrus and tropical fruit flavors on the back end along with a boozy bite. Finished semi-dryly with boozy warmth, malty and mellow tropical fruit flavors and light bitterness. Mellow hop character and light booziness are balanced by the fruity and malty flavors. Hop aroma is a bit on the light side and the carbonation could've been a touch more aggressive. Overall, very tasty with a great feel.

F: Medium body and light carbonation

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into a 16 oz Nordic pint glass canned on 4/24/19. Pours a slightly hazy yellow orange with a finger sticky white head that leaves some thick patches of lace, nice retention. 4.25

Smell is mandarin, apricot, melon, and a little grapefruit rind. 4

Taste follows apricot, mandarin orange, fresh melon, and just a little grapefruit bitterness. 4

Mouthfeel is big, a touch sticky but not dry, soft gentle carbonation, and at 8.2% extremely drinkable. 4.25

Overall this is another excellent beer from these guys. Always a tad expensive, but they put out a quality product. 4

The yellow cam pour holds a uniform, deep haze and sports a 1.5 cm foam cap. The aroma is bright with mango and strawberry. The flavor is full with kiwi, Cara Cara orange and a mint note. The hop bitterness is low to moderate. The body is smooth and the alcohol is well hidden.

16oz, canned on 08/10/2018. Pale copper in color while being opaque and capped with a thin foamy ivory head. Floral hop aroma with dry citrus, herbaceous grass, and a bit of spicy hop. Floral in flavor as well, somewhat delicate hop notes of tropical mango and orange, with background flavors of pineapple, lemon-lime, tea, and light caramel. Fuller body, lower carbonation, modest bitterness with some residual sweetness helping to keep it balanced. Nice unique & nuanced DIPA with an assertive hop flavor but a modest hop bitterness.

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a one pint can on October 2, 2018. Brewed with Galaxy and Citra hops. Notes of mango, tangerine and passionfruit. Not my favorite.

Been loving a lot of Foreign Objects stuff lately, so finding it fresh is always a treat. This was canned about 6 weeks ago, which makes it a bit older than some of the recent releases I've picked up by them, but it was also canned at a new facility(?) in Pottstown, PA instead of where they have been brewing recently in NY. This is an 8.2% DIPA brewed with Galaxy and Citra hops. Also, the name, can text, and art all lead me to believe this beer MAY be referencing the opiate properties of the poppy flower. Maybe.

Pours a deeper-than-expected light amber/golden color with a shimmering, tight head of bone-white foam which leaves behind adequate tiered lace as it settles down to about a half-finger. This beer is noticeably less opaque/hazy than other IPAs I've had from these guys recently, but there's a lot of micro-sediment particles floating around in the body, giving it more of a translucent look when held up to direct light. Different, but definitely solid looking.

The nose is sweet and candy-like right off the bat, with some fruity notes of ripe passion fruit, mango and pomelo. Very upfront rindlike citrus and candied grapefruit with some dank overtones and light grassiness. More like an older-school West Coast IPA than their recent hazy juice bombs. I dig it. It reminds me in some ways of modern DIPAs from the New England area that don't quite fit into the NEIPA mold, but kind of ride parallel in some aspects. Since I love this little sub-movement of hoppy pale ale style beers, I'm down with this right from the outset. Not everyone will be, though, probably.

Light tannic notes, hefty grain chewiness and bright mango/tangerine flavors meld with passion fruit and dank grassiness once again on the palate. The mid-palate has a little bit of bright ethanol, which seems a bit distracting, but the finish is clean and displays prominent grapefruit rind and orange tanginess. Somewhat raw and dry finish with bracing carbonation and a palate-cleansing bitterness. The feel overall seems a little lighter bodied than similar modern DIPAs (such as Hi-Def from Castle Island), and it's a little more drinkable but I also don't think it's one I will return to nearly as often as, say, Willful Delusions or Precision Neurosis. Great little beer, but more of a one-and-done than their others for me, personally. Mileage will likely vary, of course!

16 oz can poured into a Pilsner glass.

Appearance
Blonde. Light haze. Oil sediment. 1 finger of creamy white head. Light carbonation.

Mango, passion fruit, floral, blueberry, and oats.

Taste
Mango, passion fruit, and peach. Blueberry and strawberry. Floral and slightly earthy. Honey and oats.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, silky, oily, sticky, and warming with a medium-light bitterness.

Overall
Citra and Galaxy are very apparent. FO is tilting a little more toward the West Coast style with this one.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had an orange-ish color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A sweet, mellow aroma of hops, tea, citrus fruit, pine, malt, and some tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a bit of pine (not too much), a good shot of citrus fruit (orange, in would seem), a decent amount of hops, some of lychee tea (particularly in the finish), and light malt. This flavor has a smoothness you don't expect in a DIPA, mainly due to the tea. It adds a mellowing quality to it, but it never mutes any of the other elements. Tasty stuff.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a super smooth finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: A slightly different kind of DIPA, but one that works. Drinkable.
