So, this beer is very well done. The hops are more intricate and delicate RELATIVE to other Hazy IPAs. The lighter fruit notes and lighter Hop notes are apparent, and they're accentuated by the lighter and crisper body from the rice in the Brew to lighten the body. That being said, this is not what I was expecting, in a kind of disappointing way. I expected a drier, but still fruity hopper beer. This is still fairly juicy and rounded on the mouthfeel, when I was hoping for something more along the lines of an English ipa where the hops are aromatic and in the taste, but not juicy as the malts take a more direct role in the taste. I'll rate it well as a quality beer though.
soft but with bite. well made brew
Stunning “New Found Favorite”
I thought it was ok.
definitely an interesting hop profile, but finishes a bit more bitter than you’d expect. Still, very tasty!
Great beer and fresh. Hoppy with some citrus but also some depth of flavor beyond just a juicy fruit bomb. Some wheat and spice characteristics that make this more complex.
pretty good rice IPA
just a standard ipa to me
Light but has tons of flavor, really liked this.
not really my style. snowy hazy golden color, very hoppy, full mouthfeel with a touch of sweetness. it does pack a solid punch
light and refreshing
very dry but nothing special
tasty start and solid mouthfeel but aftertaste goes off balance
