A Note on This Beer
The other day, my son asked if I would give him a sip of my orange juice. Puzzled, I looked at him, looked down at my glass, and laughed.
Kid, this ain’t no OJ. Heck, if I didn’t already know the “juice” in my glass was Hollows Imperial IPA, I might be fooled, too!
This stuff is juuu-uuicy!
In fact, it’s so dang juicy, I had to check if the LIC brewers actually stuffed fruit into every can. Nope, it’s just a massive double dry-hopping of Mosaic, Vic Secret, and El Dorado that gives it those waves of candied mandarin, ripe pineapple, and bright strawberry flavors.
With all this vivid citrus juiciness and a pillowy soft mouthfeel, I know why fans like @SenatorSpaceman make such strong claims as, “There is no hyperbole when I say that this is seriously one of the best IPAs I have ever had. Maybe THE best. Seriously!”
It’s that freakin’ good! Obviously, I had to let my kid know this was Daddy’s special juice and that he’ll have to wait a few more years for that sip.
But hey, if a 10-year-old can mistake the look and smell for straight up orange juice, that’s a darn good sign you’re drinking the right IPA.

Good beer for sure
Very refreshing and light, hiding the ABV
Pretty good beer
Tastes like hairspray
No zest, but good IPA taste, would reup
Not really like the description. Piney and dank from start to finish but with a little soapy taste. Not bad.
Bitter,soapy, and no bueno :(
Middle of the road.
Nothing special. Drinkable for the ABV
Tastes like a hairspray IPA....disgusting!
Decent, but description made me think taste would be more zesty Orange
Overly carbonated, so let this sit to settle after opening. Enjoyed this more as it warmed. Promising, but could improve with some tweaking.
Awesome foam, thick haze. Malty & creamy up front, then a hint of citrus followed by a floral blast. Just a little funky as the fennel and booze creep in.
