Notes: DIPA with Pacific Northwest Citra and New Zealand Motueka hops. Big zesty lime and citrus notes with a juicy punch from the Citra.

Another great Phase 3 for me. As always they look great, smell great, and have incredible full and soft mouthfeel. On the nose I get some alcohol along with the hops and sweet citrus. Maybe a bit more alcohol than some of their past offerings or comparable Hop Butcher, but I'm still liking it. This has a nice balance of sweetness with a little hop bite. I'd buy again.

Canned 1/8/20; drank same day (!) @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dull orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a big eggshell head; thick, frothy lace.

Table sugar, orange citrus & dry baking soda notes in the nose.

Medium thick, sticky mouthfeel.

Tangy orange peel, baking soda & table sugar flavors.

Drinkable, to be sure, but far from their best effort. Not one to seek out.

Of course, I finally keep a can around (can never remember the names) and my first Phase Three review is kind of a dud. I have enjoyed most everything I've had in the past (worthy to be spoken among Mikerphone, Hop Butcher, Noon Whistle, More, and Marz), but this one is flat. Like drinking juice with a little pepper on the tongue where the carbonation should be.
