One of the guys I used to work with knew the person who designed the label for this beer. It’s definitely a huge step up from the normal label art for Flying Fish. It makes the can jump off of the shelves. Flying Fish normally has pretty basic labels on their beers. Let’s see if the liquid inside is as good as the label.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “As the old saying goes, ‘A calm sea does not make a skilled sailor.’ Sometimes we travel under stormy skies to reach brighter destinations. This classic NEIPA features ample haze and is double dry-hopped with Citra and Mosaic, providing hints of pineapple and mango. Enjoy the journey while it lasts.”
Random: This beer comes in at 30 IBUs.
The beer poured with a huge and fluffy, three finger, pure white head. It took forever to go away and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a very hazy yellow color. I couldn’t see any carbonation due to the cloudiness. The nose was filled with pineapple and oranges. There wasn’t much else to it. The taste also had a lot of fruit. I picked up more pineapple on the taste than the nose. Citrus was present as well with a touch of sweetness from the malt. The body was on the thicker side and needed a bit more carbonation. I also found the alcohol to be slightly too apparent. The finish was lengthy with pineapple. Although I had no issue finishing the beer, this wouldn’t be one I would grab for again.
