So similar to their Butterfly TIPA, so smooth & thick but this one has a bit more bite which I’m presuming comes from the Cascade hops. Still Uber drinkable, the consistency of Cloudwater TIPAs is outstanding. Can’t wait to try the next one.

Nose is dank but not prominent in the taste, instead it’s soft tropical fruit with bright citrus, & I definitely get the 🍌 comments, leaves a slightly odd aftertaste. Drinks real clean & ranks high on the quaffibility meter. Verdant’s best beer of 2020.

Lots of overripe tropical notes, with citrus pith & grapefruit adding a sharpness to proceedings. It’s a melange of flavour rather than any single fruit standing out, it also has a touch of resin on the finish. Not X Factor but it’s a solid DIPA.

Definitely reminds of Verdant with a real vegetable edge & an unctuous, gloop style mouthfeel as it gets warm. Fruit flavours easier to pick from chilled, papaya,🍈, grapefruit & a speck of lemon zest adding bitterness. As a single hop Strata beer it’s OK
Using experimental hops carries risk and this one is hit & miss. On the plus side lots of soft 🏝 fruit & a mouthfeel that is thick & milky. But there is a floral character that I don’t like, along with lingering earthy bitterness. Highly commended fail.
