Not sure if you should consider 7.5% an DIPA, especially one so insistent as Offbeat on its casual nature. Too casual, actually, with a hefty dose of Simcoe fruity dankness and Citra lemon-orange-grapefruit goodness, yet never developing much of a back end for these lovely hops to percolate and attack the palate. Grainy malts provide a basic, gentle biscuity base for the fruit to build upon, but Offbeat never really goes anywhere, fading into a bready, citrus-tinged fade lacking much-needed bitterness. Kinda feels like a strong argument for the "unfinished beer" stance against NEIPAs. Not a bad pint, just not a complete one, either.
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2018 Fresh pint at Lost River Pizza in Bowling Green, KY. Pineapple, mango with a hint of kiwi. A nice balance of hops and smooth mouth feel from start to finish. Nice hazy golden amber. Enjoy! weihenweizen (4459) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2018

Taste is citrus hops, herbal hops, and some bitter hop finish. Pretty good juice. edgallow (4847) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 18, 2018

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2018 There are things about this beer that are delightful. It’s a bit sour of an NEIPA, and this lends to a very interesting and fruity flavor that is very easy and refreshing. Yet, it’s not really what I want out of an NEIPA either. It’s almost too tart and not an IPA.

Hazy orange pour. Aroma is funky citrus. Taste follows nose. Very pleasant ipa. Good job bearded iris. drfabulous (9224) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - FEB 2, 2018
16 ounce can from Ernie's. Hazy orange pour with lots of juice and citrus to it. Nice. Suttree (6651) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 31, 2018
Can from Bearden Beer Market. It's honestly getting a little difficult to rate these hazy IPAs from Bearded Iris without doing them back to back.. I mean, they are all pretty good, but also pretty similar. I'll put it this way - If you like the other Bearded Iris Hazy IPAs, you'll like this one, too. nearbeer (5788) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 22, 2018
Pint canned 12/18/2017. Nearly opaque, pale golden pear colored with a ring and spots of foam. Big juicy citrus, resinous herb and garlic in the aroma. More of the same in the taste. Almost medium body has almost too much fizz and a pleasant fruity hop slant. nimbleprop (9148) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 17, 2018
