In all fairness: Having just been through “Triple Nelson Daydream” from Other Half, which was a very very good beer, expectations could’ve been lower, mildly put (almost unfair to not mention: I’d give it the same rating as this one… but already consumed).
Word on the street is huge. Having been around a couple of them now (and then some), I am awakened by the incredibly fruity nose here. It’s indeed summery. Peach, mango and mandarines… and moreover, vanilla comes to mind. The presence is stunningly beautiful like a good hazy NEIPA should be, the head is creamy and depth colour-wise. Enough chit chat- what does it taste like, this thing?
First associations is freshness. There’s good carbonation going on, vibrant but subtle fruity, hoppy notes. But midway a sweet layer, but what really makes this one strong is that clean, bitter sting before rounding off with a fruity end. Slowly fading into nothingness, after a lengthy aftertaste. There’s very little to improve here, that’s for sure.
Very f’ing good.
