COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the Northeast-style IPA, Rain Drops is wicked juicy and tropical. It has been dry-hopped with an abundance of Mosaic and Citra hops, giving this beer its hop-driven hazy appearance.

badgerben (5388) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2017
Murky orange color with a thin head. Smashed up tangerine and grapefruit aroma. Very strong, bitter grapefruit flavor, but not actually aggressively bitter. A slight vegetal note.

Marheb (6343) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2017
(En fût à la source): Purée de papaye juteuse avec une twist nectarine, très machable et aromatique avec une belle souplesse céréalière. Superbe.

arminjewell (9744) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2017
Pour on tap at the brewery, murky golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big tropical fruit, peach, stone fruits, some pineapple with a touch of dank, cat pee notes with a touch of citrus peel. Taste was sweet, a mix of tropical fruit, stone fruits, and citrus into some slight dank notes, touch of malty sweetness before finishing fairly dry, slightly sweet, slightly bitter. Clear winner here.

On tap at the brewery before Gary Clark Jr show. 10oz tulip glass. Super citrus juice appearance with the nose to back it up. Plenty of haze and a deep golden orange color. Taste definitely follows suit with plenty of citrus sweetness and somehow citrus rind bitterness playing well together. Dreamcicle comes to mind. Alcohol is well hidden. This brewery has come out swinging and delivered on a great representation of the NE style. Open up wide and let the rain drops tickle your tastebuds.

islay (3185) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2017
4 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in St. Paul, Minnesota. Consumed on 6-23-17. Milky, cloudy tan. Small to moderate amount of beige head. Pretty good lacing. Too murky as usual for the style,but I’ve seen worse. Pleasant citrus-dominated nose. Funky, fresh, and citric smell. Cotton candy scent. Grassy smell that is almost wooden. Bread crust scent as well. Good, lemon, funky, gym bag flavor. Much better than usual for the substyle in terms of flavor. Watermelon. Not too sweet. More Toppling Goliath than New England, but that’s good by me. A welcome earthiness / touch of dirt. Too milky on multiple sips. Spicy aftertaste that I like. Lively and chewy in the palate. Light body, which drags the palate down a bit. Not too soft. One of the best murky New England IPAs I’ve had, but that’s not saying much. 8.2.7.4.14=>3.5

At the brewery taproom in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. Great example of a NE style IPA. Pours a hazy rich golden colored brew with a thick white head excellent lacing. Aroma of sweet tropical passion fruit, honey, and a hint of grapefruit. Taste is full bodied. Finish is clean and slightly sweet mildly bitter, great after taste that doesn’t linger. Definitely no shortage of hops and malt in this NE-style IPA.

deyholla (12676) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2017
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a combination of earthy tropical fruit, grapefruit and citrus with a decent amount of onion underlying. Flavor is similar with tropical fruit and onion throughout and a bit of grapefruit underlying.

Keg @ Barrel Theory. Hazy, somewhat soupy gold pour with a small white head. Looks indistinguishable from 3 other beers in my flight of five. Nose is bright and engaging. Loads of grapefruit meat and general tropical citrus fruit character. Mild underarm and some sea grass. Flavor is very, very sweet. More tropical fruit character. Pineapple and grapefruit abounds. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Just a touch of oniony bitterness on the finish for balance. Drinks pretty hot. Definitely feeling the full effects of the chunky ABV. Overall, a pretty good example of a style that I don’t adore. The sweet profile makes this a bit of a chore after a few ounces, and it’s sort of one dimensional as a fruit bomb. Can see why others adore this, though.
