4/5 rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Pours a hazy amber with a thin, clinging white head.
S: Aromas of lemon, blood orange, grapefruit, lime, pine, tangerine, herbs, caramel, and biscuit predominate on the nose.
T: Delicate notes of lemon, lime, grapefruit, blood orange, tangerine, kumquats, pine, herbs, crackers, biscuits, and caramel wash across the palate. The finish is bitter and intense with grapefruit, lemon, kumquat, pine, caramel, and biscuit flavors in abundance.
M: Medium in body and typically resinous. Carbonation is rather prickly.
O: A rock solid IPA. I appreciate the fact that it is unfiltered, although I did not feel the lack of filtration added anything new to the flavor. In the end, I like this beer, but I am not certain I can really relate to the hype that seems to surround it.

3.43/5 rDev -14%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
A: super freakin' cloudy, pinkish-amber hue.... thinnish, weak head (due to sediment maybe?) - looks a mess or, worse, infected.... and I've seen the bottle, too - the label art is pretty psych-out cheezy
S: mildly custard aromas, perhaps a touch of mango.... mostly a fragrant but muddy orange scent with a decidedly yeasty background
T: predominately creamy orange and doughy malt, bit of melon... not terribly sweet, but hardly dry... moderate, washed-out bitterness
M: up front - medium-bodied, oily.... slips away, thinning a bit on the finish... altogether fairly smooth but somewhat dull and dead as well
O: a muddy, yogurt-y (or smoothie-like) sort of IPA.... finished the glass, but i would never touch this stuff again nor recommend it.... it has potential - they ought to clean it up a bit
Serving type: on-tap
