A: Golden, slightly hazy. Large frothy white head

S: Lemon, Melon, Mango - tropical fruits and light citrus

T: Hop water. My taste buds were taken over by and oniony, orangey, mango like liquid (simcoe hops?). Not my favorite hop profile, but it oozes with flavor. Exceptionally smooth, I wish it had a bit more of a bite on the back end.

M: Medium bodied. Lingering fruit finish.

O: This stuff is like orange juice beer - in a good way. Deserves the hype it gets.

I honestly think it's the best DIPA coming out of VT right now.
