Picked up at Beer Baron in Livonia, Michigan.

A - Pours hazy, dark orange. Retains a little bit of off-white head throughout the whole time. Laces the glass a little bit, though lacing did not stick. Not as much as their Buzzsaw laced the glass.

S - Smells sweet and malty. A bit of pine.
Tropical citrus smell. Pineapple/mango. Tangerine?

T - This is on the sweeter side of double IPAs. Juicy, tropical fruit flavors (I guess about same as the smell) from the hops and a sweet kind of caramel malt taste. Little bit of alcohol warmth, but the taste of it is mostly covered pretty well. While it starts off with a sweetness, it ends with some hop bitterness. It is fairly drinkable, although the sweetness may slow some down a bit.

M - Medium or so bodied. Oily/sticky.
Pretty good mouthfeel.

O - Pretty solid DIPA. Does a good enough job at living up to the "Mr. Delicious" name and fulfilling my want for a tropical (D)IPA. Good offering from Arbor Brewing, worth the try if you like this style of beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: deep burnt orange color. fairly hazy and opaque. off white head of about a finger that fades slowly and leaves a lacing on the sides with a little on the top as well

Smell: slight pine along with citrus hops. some malty sweetness

Taste: opens up with citrus, pine and resin hop flavors. malty backbone arises with pale, bready and slightly sweet malts.

Mouthfeel: medium body. sticky resiny hops. and a bit of lingering bitterness.

Overall: I had this one on tap at the brewery about a year ago before i was too into DIPA's and enjoyed it the. reminds me a bit of a double Buzzsaw. Another great IPA from the Arbor Brewing line-up. They just be my favorite IPA brewery, if you ignore sacred cow.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours hazy/cloudy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big pineapple, tangerine, lemon zest, peach, orange peel, floral, grass, light caramel, light pine, bread, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright hop and moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big pineapple, tangerine, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon/orange zest, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops with moderate malt balance; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice DIPA. Good balance and complexity of bright hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

$5.50 for a pint at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan.

Mr. Delicious pours sort of an orange sort of color... a bit hard for me to remember as I had a BIIIIT too much to drink after having this. Looked beautiful though with a finger or two of head and great lacing for much of the drink. Probably the best part of the beer. The smell and taste is also quite fruity/juicy, with a solid bitterness as well from piney notes. Medium thickness and medium-or-so carbonation. Really tasty stuff. The orange flavor with tropical notes really makes this a tasty juicy choice for fans of fruitier IPAs. The only thing about the brew is that while it has some solid characteristics and a nice flavor, I still feel like it needs "more." The alcohol is hidden flawlessly, as it drinks like a 6 or maybe 7% beer.

I haven't had many at all from Arbor, but this is the best of theirs that I have had. I'd definitely order it again. Very good.
