A - pours a nice soft cloudy golden orange color with a solid finger+ of near white head, very good retention and lacing. Slow but steady carbonation 10 minutes after the pour.
S - Oh man, deliciously citrusy notes, lots of sweeter tropical/pineapple/mango type aromas. Honestly cant get past that, a little caramel sweetness comes through but mostly just magical citric and tropical goodness.
T - Has a pretty fantastical juicy sweet taste, more mango/pineapple/passion fruit than grapefruit/orange although all of those flavors are present. Sounds boring but this is super delicious, kind of reminds me of hopslam.
M - Medium bodied or so, quite drinkable for a 9.5er for sure. Appropriate carbonation, really enjoying this.
O - As you can see, I'm a fan. Kind of kicking myself for not trying this before, although it does come at a hefty price tag (I tihnk I paid ~16 for this) but it does come with a sweet resealable bottle which are expensive on their own and definitely handy for bottling homebrews. Reminds me a lot of hop slam

Got a growler on the way out of Portland, bring it on the plane !
Light orange, clear IPA. Nice 1/2 inch white foamy head poured into my 10 barrel medium side snifter.
Mild bite from the IPA, nice mild grapefruit, hoppy flavor, very pleasant to drunk, even though it is over 9 %.
Mouthfeel seems 'bout right, a little malty goodness when you 'foam' it up in your mouth.
I would drink this every time at the airport, a nice find there , will probably add it in the cart now, from time to time. Drink it !
