Awww this is my very first single beer write up, which at first I was like yessss more things to post about. Unfortunately I have come to the understanding that a long ass beer review does not come easy for me. Over time hopefully I will improve or curl up into a ball because I failed at my life goal to make everyone happy.
Appearance: Hazy orange almost creamy looking. **Side note: Using lactose is becoming popular in different styles not only milk stouts. The lactose can make a beer hazy and sweeter. *side note on a side note: Every time I see a hazy IPA I realize that there is a good chance that lactose may be a creepin somewhere. Which also means I am about to take a chance on how intolerant I am.
Smell: Tropical smells of orange, mango, and papaya. Pretty much like sniffing a fruit salad.
Taste: Really sweet malt and fruit taste but the bitterness on the backend helps balance the beer. Definitely get mango and papaya also some citrus notes like lemon and orange.
Mouthfeel: Chewy (yes I said chewy. It’s like juicy but thicc…. now sip the beer and tell me that’s not chewy) Medium body with a dry finish.
Overall: This is a good tropical double ipa. If you like your IPAs to be a little on the sweeter side this is your beer.
