4.28/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bright saturated orange with slowly rising trails of carbonation, a thick head of white foam that has a meringue-like texture sits on the surface, slowly coating the glass with sheets of lacing. Lasting retention, looks really nice.

Aroma is bursting with sweet tangerine, bitter orange peel, hints of tropical mango earthiness. Despite the hop onslaught, some pale malt bleeds through underneath also.

Flavor is slightly less intense, but still a very concentrated citrus burst, orange and tangerine, bitter rinds and pith certainly. Middle has some hints of pale malt and green botanicals, a moderate hop bitterness but never truly palate-destroying which is nice. Medium bodied, never too sweet or bitter, nicely balanced and drinkable. It reminds me of a tweaked Double Daisy Cutter with a little more body and heavier citrus presence. Really good stuff, and I hope this gets put into regular rotation alongside Ninja vs. Unicorn.
