22. Thanks, N! Wow, what an awesome, unexpected treat! Pours a cloudy bright medium gold with a loose white head. Huge tangy sweet nose, you can tell it’s punching way above its weight even before you learn the ABV--it’s high-power without being high-boost. Floral, fruity, a bit of bubblegum, some citric bite. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty grain, floral, fruity, bubblegummy mid-palate. Long tangy clean finish.

Tap at the source. Pours quite hazy, small creamy beige head, great lacing. Aroma is light, but super pleasant tropical mango, passion fruit. Flavor is light sweet and light bitter, very juicy, tropical fruit, stonefruit, hints of dank pot. Medium body, very creamy mouthfeel. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a box from Juan’s Grocer. Pours a cloudy, hazy, opaque light orange color with a small tight white head. Nose is pure squeezed orange juice with a hint of lemon and grapefruit. Not too danky, not too tropical. Taste is more grapefruit forward showing some more acidic citrus flavors. A firm hop bitterness smoothed out a very creamy mouthfeel, likely high in proteins I’m guessing. Never to creamy but has a pleasant mouthfeel without the crystal malt sweetness. Overall a pretty solid IPA that reminds me of the first time I had Fresh Squeezed. Almost like you can taste the pulp.

Bottle from Hy-Vee. Hazy straw color. Aroma is all wet hop and pine. Flavor is very heavy on straw and hay; a bit harsh and slightly astringent but a unique flavorful ipa.
