“Exceedingly juicy with a fluffy mouthfeel and drenched in notes of canned yellow peaches, orange Italian soda, fresh buds, and a hint of trashy margarita mix. [hops: Enigma, Citra, Idaho7].”
Appearance: Turbid pastel yellow pour reminiscent of actual brekky juice. It only manages a short but very finely beaded head which leaves an excellent lace trail as we go.
Aroma: Ok this smells freakin amazing. The juice characters have some insane uplift as does the super dank and weedy herbals, flashes of pine resin, frosty fruits/juice concentrate, candied lemon/lime, salt and cracked pepper. Never thought we’d talk about a beer like it’s being seasoned! Fresh peach becomes more prevalent as it settles. Really doughy malt profile…a little chalky as well. Superb.
Flavour: It comes on with a slightly surprising green hop bitterness but it quickly folds into a distinct brekky juice quality (mango, orange, pear/apple and peachy stonefruits) heady pine resin, dank weedy herbals and black pepper. Grapefruit and a more defined yellow peach flavour develops late then helps set up the somewhat dry and bitter finish with lingering notes of salty citrus, dank herbals and pine resin.
Mouthfeel: Light, pillowy and well aerated yet it still holds a fairly decent body. Ultra fine Co2. The 8.5% ABV is kept at bay reasonably well.
Overall: We must admit for a little known brewery on the West Coast of USA these guys pump out some seriously impressive NEIPA’s. They’re almost Treehouse-like in their execution. Other than a slightly lifted bitterness it was near perfect.
