look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass. Pours a nice hazy orange color, with a big head that sticks around. Aroma is nice, something fruity maybe grapefruit, as well as a fainty piny character. Taste is very smooth, but there's a fruity aftertaste that i can't quite place. That said bitterness and mouthfeel is great especially for a double. Pretty solid overall, but I'm not a huge fan of whatever the lingering aftertaste is; but I'd try another from the brand still!

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on December 22, 2019. Look is cloudy. Smell and taste is juicy citrus, melon and stone fruit. Finishes bitter.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned in 110/20199. Pours very hazy deep golden/green/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big red grapefruit, tangerine, mandarin, lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, guava, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, light toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with big strength. Taste of big red grapefruit, tangerine, mandarin, lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, guava, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, light toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, mandarin, lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, guava, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, light toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 8%. Overall this is an excellent NEDIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/resinous/drying finish; not overly aggressive. Great Citra, Comet, Mandarina Bavaria profile. Very vibrant, juicy, dank, earthy hops; with a nice wheat/oat/malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and impressive style example as expected of the brewery.

Fairly safe IPA with good crisp hoppiness. No date printed on can. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with some mild white head and scant lingering lacing. Smells of ripe pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, tangerine and mango hops. Also malt, bread, vanilla and floral hops. Tastes similarly, good balance and hoppy crispness with a well hidden higher ABV. Smooth, mild mouthfeel, slightly sticky, good carbonation. An enjoyable offering.

16 oz. Can

Poured into a Trillium glass a pretty nice cloudy pale yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger plus white head, which also leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, mango, apricot), pretty nice diesel like. The taste is pretty nice hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, mango, apricot), pretty nice diesel like, nice little sweetness. Medium body, ABV hidden very nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a pretty nice brew. Orange Julius! Addictive! MilkShake! Nice to see it around here.

No canned on date, but just came into the shop last week.

Pale, hazy golden yellow. Not too much rising head. What forms is thin and frothy, with minimal amounts of residual lacing.

A hint of sweet mango candy, mildly bitter pineapple, and earthy hops on the nose. A bit of present malt as well comes out initially.

Pretty even-balanced hazy offering. Lots of pineapple and grapefruit, with subtly piney, floral hops that leave a good bit of residual pithy bitterness. A subtle tangerine sweetness and some present booze round it out.

Medium-bodied, with medium sharp carbonation, mild residual stickiness, and warm booze in the finish.

Had on tap. Cloudy bright yellow body with a white cap. Tons of citrus exploding off the nose, with peach, mango and pineapple. Taste is again citrus heavy, hops are grassy and mild. Taste is juicy but feel is not, dry, fluffy, and creamy. Good example of the style

Poured a cloudy, golden-orange body with minimal head and lace patches down glass. Aroma is classic orange juice with some hints of tangerine and white grapefruit. Smooth, fuller-bodied, has both citric orange-like bitterness and tropical fruit sweetness. Not completely balanced as the beer is more dry, bitter, earthy than anything else as the bitterness overpowers the other aspects of the beer.

Yikes, vastly overrated here and on Untappd. Taste is a bit of a muddled mess. I picked it up based on online ratings; I don't know if something happened in transit from the East Coast to here, but this is not comparable to DDH hazies out here.

From the lip on the bottom of the can: "PRAIR1-AI"

Appearance: The body is opaque and light beige. It has a short white head that looks a bit like stucco on the surface. Medium retention and no lacing.

Aroma: There is a nice soft aroma of gummy peach rings and a touch of alcohol. There is a very light aroma of mango flesh.

Taste: Up front there is a bit of mango character and just a bit of tangerine. This carries all the way through to the end. In there middle there is just a light bit of grain at first and it fades quickly as the fruity flavor starts to build on the palate. Alcohol flavor pops in from time to time.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium-low bitterness and a light body. Average drinkability.

Overall: The can states that this is a "DOUBLE DRY HOPPED DOUBLE INDIA PALE ALE" and it clearly has the New England IPA style in all aspects of its existence. It has some nice light fruity aromas and flavors. Alcohol does come through which is to be expected at "ALC. 8% BY VOLUME" (as indicated by the label) with such a light flavor and aroma profile. It is worth drinking and I could see myself drinking it again from time to time.
