Fort George Bat Sh!t Hazy IPA

Beer Name: Bat Sh!t Hazy
Brewery: Fort George Brewery (Astoria, OR)
ABV: 7.8%
How sold: On draft only
Where bought: Belmont Station (Portland, OR)
Price: $4.00 for 8 oz pour

Date Purchased: October 24, 2017
When brewed? Limited-time beer. Possibly a one-time collaboration with Lisa Morrison.

Commercial Description: "A citrus-sherbet tropical glass of opaque mayhem, w/ tons of tangerine, melon, papaya and lime zest combined with a wedge of pineapple."

Where distributed: As of October 2017, Fort George distributed this beer likely just in the Pacific Northwest.

Appearance (5%): Poured cloudy/hazy light orange into a tulip glass. Frothy white head. 4.75/5

Smell (25%): Citrus creamy sherbet and tropical aroma. Tangerine and papaya also detected. Amazing. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Easy-drinking, juicy tropical. Tons of creamy tangerine citrus. I downed this pretty quickly. Very delicious. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied; good carbonation. Extremely juicy and easy drinking. 4.75/5

Overall (20%): A world-class IPA. Fort George had a mega hit before with hazy IPAs; their 3-Way IPA collab earlier this year was a grand slam. Once I saw Lisa Morrison did this hazy IPA collab with Fort George, I again had to venture out for science. The description was spot-on, the tropical burst so delicious and comforting. I would love several 16 oz tallboy cans of this. Another two huge thumbs up here. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.75/5
