Ok so wow.

Pouring this into a snifter you get this burnt tangerine colored brew with a ridiculously huge foamy white head. Looks like someone put a huge dollop of whipped cream atop this lively carbonated brew.

as for the nose, super citrus notes, mango, nectarine, orange peel, with a faint sweetness. my nose often get a hit with a breadiness upfront wtih most IPAs...that's just me..this one just smells...juicy!

this beer tastes like a three way with natalie portman and beyonce.

This might be my new favorite in the style. cheers.

My first rating. Huge fan of the website. Overall glad I tried the beer but 75 bucks for a twelves of 16.9 oz bottles?? The equivalent of 105 bucks for a case? Total bullshit. Even more annoying is their do what's right propaganda. At these prices that's really in poor taste. Overall I'd give the beer a 93.
