Greater Good Pulp Daddy Review
Pulp Daddy is easy drinking, juice or PULP forward IPA that is extremely citrusy. This is basically a bigger and more powerful version of the PULP (Pauls’s Ultimate Lupulin Protocol).
This beer is bright or tan orangish to golden in color. It pours a thin line of white head that diminishes quickly. The white head is only a finger high and collapses faintly fast leaving light lacing around the corners of the glass. The white also fades into bubbles, leaving dusty skin on top.
The appearance is delightful, although a little hazy which prevents clarity in the beer. The straw yellow – golden hues give the beer the right color making it look appealing at first glance.
The smell of orange peels, orange zest, tangerine, pineapple, and mangoes is quite predominant. These aromas are followed by subtle earthiness, some biscuity aroma, and some hints of floral esters too. There is some mild presence of dankness and notes of phenol at the back, that can be avoided as they go almost unnoticed.
The piney nose leads to some dankness followed by sweet and citrus aromas. The intense citrusy and tropical fruity smell is quite overpowering and makes this beer what it is.
With a medium to light body, this beer is a breeze to drink. It goes down as easy as it pours. However, some may feel slight astringence in the mouthfeel. The beer shows a crisp and clean character on the palate. The beer also boasts medium carbonation that leads to slightly sticky after-finish.
The carbonation has a lingering finish, which surprisingly makes you reach out for another round of Hazy. There is also some mild boozy warmth in the mouth with light alcohol presence alongside a thin velvety texture, thanks to the haze. Overall the beer gives an appealing mouthfeel, not something you would regret.
The beer does show some powdered sugar sweetness. This is an extremely well-balanced beer when it comes to bright citrusy flavors and a warm malt base. There are notes of grapefruit and orange zest that take over on the first sip. This follows some notes of pineapple.
There is light bitterness hidden under the tropical fruity flavors that bring in some complexity to the beer. The mild bitter finish helps balance the sweetness of all the fruity flavors involved. There are light floral esters, herbal flavors, some light toasty malts, and basic earthiness to the beer, making it a flavorful fest.

This style of beer is notoriously difficult to pair food with which is why it is best to stay on the designated list of dishes.

About hops, a combination of Citra and Mosaic is used to develop a complex yet flavorful beer.
