  • Poured from a can purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. Date: 06/09/20.

    Pours cloudy with a huge off-white, large bubbles foam. Retention is great, leaving sticky residue on the glass.

    Aroma of orange, almost tang like. Perfume/floral upon opening the can that seems to give way to stronger scents quickly. Dank ripe fruits. Lemon and big lime.

    Taste of lime is there. In the middle to finish, lingering with green hop burn and lime bitterness, creating a bit of an off-putting end. Ripe fruits with more lime and orange.

    Body is thin. Carbonation is light and doesn’t help to build the mouthfeel. Juicy that gives to a slow dryness.

    The first sip is a bit rough around the edges. The lime, alcohol and hop burn in the finish are not pleasant. The light, almost non-existent, body does nothing to assist. First beer from Riverlands that I don’t care for. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • A citrusy delight, this rascal is a New England style DIPA featuring Citra, El Dorado, and Vic Secret hops! One of our favorite hop combinations, there are notes of juicy orange citrus, tropical fruit, and lime. The malt body lends sweetness to compliment the hops as well as a pillowy, smooth body.
