odd13 brewing intergalactic juice hunter 2.0 double india pale ale - 8% abv. odd13 is a lafayette colorado brewery that doesn't distribute here, I bought these to help get the shipping cost of the anchorage cans down. as the name suggests this has galaxy, along with lactose and some unspecified hops. this is reasonably juicy, with the usual mix of orange, mango, and papaya but there's not that much detail here. the lactose is well used, the hops are sweet and creamy in a way that makes them rich without too much direct lactose flavor, and while I think I prefer the way the west coast ipas use malt to the same effect. this is solid if uninteresting.

eta: this is definitely a little bit briny as it gets closer to room temperature.

grimm passion fruit pop! dessert berlinerweisse-style ale brewed with passion fruit, vanilla, and milk sugar - brewed at beltway brewing, 4.8% abv. the is the nth version of grimm's fruited sours with lactose, and while I kind of wish they'd focus their efforts elsewhere this is just as pleasant as the rest of the beers in this series. passion fruit is an obvious choice for this series, the lactose and vanilla aren't that present but it's not as tart as real passion fruit is, and there's more oak in the finish than usual. if you've had one of the beers in this series you probably know exactly how this is.
