A - Bright orange with a slight brown tint. Good white head with lots of foam

S - Balanced nose that has both mango sweetness and grapefruit bitterness

T - Mango and pineapple up front initially. Good hit of pine and grapefruit bitterness hit as the beer moves along the tongue. There is a malty orange sweetness that comes thru to temper the bitterness which lingers in the finish

M - Medium sticky body with hop resin remains on the tongue

O - Good balanced IPA that has both sweet mango flavors while also having a nice bitter presence to it

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange. Clear. Medium white head. Good retention with a medium collar.

Smell - Grapefruit. Smells like simcoe. Caramel malt. Some booze.

Taste - Orange and grapefruit. Sweet citrus. Gets a little herbal and pithy in the back. Sweet doughy malts. Bitter in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. A bit boozy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Enjoyable, but I'd take Boy King over this.

Served from bottle into a Westbrook snifter (proper!). Poured yellow-orange with a minimal off-white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, onion, onion hop, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, onion, earth, and onion hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. I went in to this beer not really expecting too much if I am completely honest. However, what I found was a really well balanced double IPA that made it really easy to drink and quite enjoyable. The onion aspect going on was a very nice touch to the citrus that was present. Another well done brew by the guys in the southern part of the state. Brew on guys!
