This is a beauty. Absolutely! Pours impenetrable. The colors is just amazing: mango milk. Or milky mango. Something like mango lassi with a creamy twist. This can't go wrong! 💛💛💛 Introvert carbonation pushes a creamy head up to two fingers. Pure velvet! Retention is lengthy as a thin haze floats on the top. The appearance is 5/5, nothing less! The nose loves the soft velvety experience. I expected something less balmy because the label says this is a DIPA. Nevertheless, the color indicates that this must be a NEDIPA. And indeed it is!! Mango, cantaloupe and pineapple can, at least, be spotted in the scent. Zesty lemon and grapefruit as well as dank weed season the tropical cocktail. It's also interesting that the fragrance is creamy and gives both lactose and vanilla in small proportions. Lovely but not as powerful as it could be. I take a sip. Tropical fruits? Mmmmyah... Pineapple and mango, a bit. Citruses? Definitely. I pick lemon pith and grapefruit peel. Grass and pine? Dank grass, yes, but pine is modest. Berries? This part is interesting! I'm getting tiny amendments of white grape, strawberry and redcurrant leaf. Sweeteners? Hell yeah! Vanilla and lactose. Lactose and vanilla. As if adjuncted. Who knows. All in all, this is a seductive entity. A good amount of components in a layered structure. 💛💛💛 The body is medium. The finish gears crisper with grassy and citrusy elements, not abandoning pineapple either. Sweeteners like to go hiding at this stage. Hop burn is apparent but manageable. Fresh! The carnivorous aftertaste refuses anything animal-origin for a good while. The mouthfeel is soft, smooth, creamy and even velvety. It's very juicy, zesty, pulpy but also a bit pithy, as well as relatively tropical. Still further, the mouthfeel is a little crisp, remotely dank, balanced, lip-glueing and gentle. Layers can also be found. The appearance is perfect, the scent is attractive and the taste is delicious. What a fantastic harmonious enjoyment! 💛💛💛

Kesäkuun puolenvälin paikkeilla tötsättyä Fidensiä,omilla lemppari humalilla ryyditettynä 😋🍻.Citra,Galaxy ja Nelson humala kattauksen takia jo pelkästään odotuksia tähän löytyy,vaikka ikää suottaapikin olla 2 tai 3 viikkoa yli optimin mutta let's see 😎🍻. Tuoksu trooppisempaa persikkaa,vähemmän mangoa ja makeampaa ananasta. Maku on raikas ja kermaisahko,mutta samalla myös osittain kivan rouheahko. Samanmoista hedelmäisyyden havaintoa mausta kuin tuoksustakin.Ehkä jännä sellainen greippisempi passionhedelmän tuulahdus käy vielä maun puolella lisänä🤔. Aavistuksen se tuntuu kyllä kevyeltä ja maut/syvyys eivät ehkä ihan pääse vaikka eilisen Tree Housen Green oluen tasolle.Toki tämä on todella mehumaista ja helpohkoa juotavaa kaikin puolin siitä huolimatta. Hmm...🤔 Odotuksiltaan kovin Fidens osoittautui nyt kyllä heikoimmaksi😅.Vaikka hyvä Dipa onkin ei vaan mitenkään erikoinen tai erityisen sytyttävä 🤷‍♂️🍻
