Bottle. Burn orange/cooper, little hazy with medium to big, white, densed head. Poor lasting. Average lacing. Mostly tropical fruits aroma (amarillo, citra) and some citrus (orange, mandarin) also floral and resin notes, also noticable hints of honey. Taste is light to medium bitter with mostly tropical fruits and floral flavours, next you cen feel some resin and woody notes. Along with hops there is pretty balanced malty profile with mainly caramel accents. Medium body, smooth/oily texture, medium carbonation, finish is light bitter. In general very solid and balanced IPA, quite drinkable.

Hazy, amber, with a really compact full finger white head.
The smell really shows the diversity of hops used, with a really tutti-frutti feel (waves of sweet citrus, mango, papaya, pineapple, peach, faint apricot, faint lychee), but lacking strong pine and grassiness, enveloped in a quite sticky caramel sweetness.
Taste is way more complex, fortunately. Bittersweet citrus dominates, sure, with orange and tangerine first, lime, pomelo, then pink grapefruit. There's pineapple syrup in the start, too, mango pulp, lychee, dragonfruit, clear maracuja, a lot of juicy peach. Surprisingly, malts have a bit of breathing space, with a lightly honeyed cracker characteristic, just for a moment. Hints of pine resin, a touch of dankness and even some light noble hop notes, but the finish is clearly a mix of Amarillo and Sorachi Ace, with lemon peel and bitter grass.
Aftertaste is chaotically hoppy, pretty hard to put a finger on something exactly, aside from the still big citrus notes. Bitterness is enjoyable, sweetness is pretty subtle. Medium body and carbonation.
This could've gone either way: a trainwreck of hops, or a one trick pony. It's somewhere in between, with some hops (the ones used in bigger quantities) really setting the tone, and with the other ones just pinching and adding to the flavor here and there. A really tasty IPA, a really nice "experiment".

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: A very hazy golden brown-orange color. Looks similar to unpasteurized apple cider. Pours with a medium-large head

S: Underwhelming. Hints of citrus, grass, and floral aromas.

T: Wonderful taste. Starts slightly bitter with earthy & lemony flavors, turns into a malty, smooth taste, then finishes with a hint of citrus fruit. The malts are well balanced with the hops.

M: Really good. The carbonation is just right, and the finish is dry.

O: A damn tasty beer. I'm not sure if the price is justified, but you won't be upset if you took it home with you. My biggest problem is the aromatics fall far short from the taste.
