3 Magnets Brewing Woohoo! Hazy Double IPA (2018)

Beer Name: Woohoo! (2018 Release)

ABV: 8.5%
How sold: 16 oz tallboy cans; on draft

Price: $6.23 for 16 oz tallboy can

Date Canned: October 9, 2018
Date Purchased: October 20, 2018
Date Drank: November 8, 2018
When brewed? Seasonal or rotational beer. Debuted August 2017 under a different label; I reviewed it here.
IBUs: 65

Where distributed: 3 Magnets Brewing ships to the Pacific Northwest. I do not know if they ship to other states/regions.

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy peach-colored into a pint glass. Unfiltered; sediment at the bottom of the can. White head, some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Initially dank-forward with tropical in background. After warming up a bit, it's more tropical-forward, almost POG-like (passion fruit and guava mainly) with slight resinous notes. Oaty malt detected as well. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Slight dank-forward, but a boatload of tropical stone fruit and guava swoops in. Aftertaste is all tropical with a bit of citrus. Really has that POG-like flavor going. I'm a fan. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Creamy. Juicy with slight dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. 3 Magnets has released Woohoo! yet again with a different label than the last time I saw it. Big thumbs up for the POG-like flavor. Although my wallet did not take too kindly to the price tag, I had to get it for science anyway. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.463/5
