    Pours hazy and opaque with a huge white foam. Froths as it slowly never completely recedes. Thick lacing.

    Aroma is not overly strong but is dank with ripe stone fruit and mango highlights. Slightly sweet.

    Taste of mango, apricot, peach, and some sweetness on the backend. Light bitterness that fades quickly. Lingering fruits. Touch of heat.

    Heavy end of medium body. Strong carbonation on the front of the tongue. Juicy.

    This is a good beer but nothing special. Good balance, aroma, and taste but not ground breaking. Once again nothing wrong but definitely many in the style better. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • This hazy double IPA is brewed with a simple malt bill and hopped heavily with fruit-forward Mosaic, Cashmere and El Dorado. Laced with delicate and aromatic tropical notes along with a bright berry medley and a crisp mouthfeel, it’s like diving into the Pacific on a 90 degree day. Seriously, nothin’ beats the heat, like Retreat.
