Frothy white head. Modestly hazy light golden color. Not very hazy for a hazy. Yellow gummy bears, lactose and oranges. The palate has medium carbonation, low medium bitterness, very smooth and rounded. Modestly juicy, but not very dank. A bit sweeter than expected. Not very tart. I wasnt in love with the regular Drift Net and I am not in love with this either, though like its younger sibling, this is still not a bad drop, but I think I am done with the Drift Nets. The more this warmed the sweeter it became. Ultimately I couldnt drink the last 10% of the beer which was near room temp.

I remember when this beer didnt suck, but had the 2015 version in 2020 and it should have held up well. Instead it was a sweet sugary mess. No balance. Only positive thing was the ABV was well hidden. Had a hard time drinking a glass of this. Total drainpour.

Golden color. Frothy white head. Interesting note of Pilsner malt (I believe) and some fruity overtones. Not overly bitter,, but the malt character really stood out, though didnt match the style at all. It was like they got some fresh ingredients and said fuck it, lets just try to make an IPA with this. Beer was in great condition and I enjoyed it, but once was enough.

Dark brown color. Excellent mix of green coffee beans and citrus hops working in harmony in the nose. Medium body, medium bitterness, super quaffable and good depth. Super approachable

Nice light juicy Mikan rinds and sharp citrus character. Juicy, with soft mouth feel, low medium bitterness, but there are no hops in this beer. The bitterness is driven by the fruit. Very interesting and refreshing. This concept needs to be explored more.
