Flying Fish has really embraced canning their beers and they’ve been updating their packaging as well as coming out with new beers. This is their latest offering.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This unfiltered Double IPA leads with aromas of tangerine, pineapple and melon. Citrusy hops are balanced with an appropriate amount of wheat and oats, creating a perfect terrain for this very approachable beer. So good, you’ll want to have TWO at the same time.”
Random: This beer was first released in March of 2019 and uses Citra, Warrior, Centennial, Simcoe, Huell Melon, Azacca, and Cascade hops. It’s available in cans and on draft.
This beer poured with a one finger, pure white head. It dissipated quickly and left very little lacing on the glass. It did leave a small crown on top of a relatively clear, yellow body. There was a lot of carbonation visible as well. The nose had a decent amount of tangerine and honeydew up front with a little bit of grain that was noticeable as well. The taste had a nice hop presence. I picked up pineapple and honeydew along with a touch of tangelo. There was also a nice malt backbone. The alcohol was a bit hot on this one, which took away from the flavor. The body was on the lighter side of the style with a decent amount of carbonation. The finish was quick with tangelo and a touch of wheat. This wasn’t the most amazing beer of the style that I’ve ever had, but I wouldn’t refuse it if it was handed to me.
