Review: Phantom Beer Co's Remembering Tomorrow Hazy IPA

Today I'm checking out Remembering Tomorrow Hazy IPA by Vancouver's Phantom Beer Co. I couldn't find much information about this Hazy IPA except that it's well.. obviously a Hazy IPA and that it's a light beer at only 4.0% ABV.

Appearance: Definitely hazy but not overly juice-like compared to a lot of hazy IPAs out there. Has a mildly cloudy lemon to not quite orange colour to the body. There's a light amount of carbonation in the body, while the head has a very nice and frothy white head on top. Once the head diminishes a tad, it leaves behind a moderate amount of lacing on the glass.. but not too much.

Aroma: Notes of tropical fruits with orange, pineapple and lemon. Decently reminiscent of juice for breakfast. There's a very subtle graininess from the malt but that's about all I really get from this beer so far.

Taste: The graininess of the malt definitely pops out more this time around to give it a bit of a breakfast cereal kind of vibe to it, grainy yet sweet. The tropical fruit notes are there but not anywhere near as dominant as before.. I get lemon before anything else, followed by a hint of orange and a faint sweetness of pineapple. The aftertaste is light but mostly a wet barley taste to it and a hint of a metallic taste.

Overall Thoughts: Lighter than most Hazy IPAs for taste but this was easy to drink and devoured pretty quickly by yours truly. I've enjoyed everything I've had by Phantom so far but this definitely isn't as good as their other beers I've tried so far.. but still pretty drinkable and surprisingly better than a few Canadian Hazy/NEIPA/Juicy IPAs I've had in recent memory.
