Have had this 4 or 5 times now and finally getting around to reviewing. Thanks to Cam for sharing this 750ml growler.

The pour into a snifter is hazy darkish orange with a finger or so of white head, retention and lace are great. This one is huge on citrus and tropical fruit hops, big time melon, mango and oranges stick out the most, with a little bit of weedy/leafy hop. Quite bitter with just a little bit of sugar cookie malt backing. Smooth, well-carbonated mouthfeel, the heft and bitterness of this is surprising for 6.5%. Could pass for a DIPA.

I prefer Green to this personally but still a pretty great IPA.

A- My second 750ml of this throughout the last week. Poured into two snifters with a slightly hazed apricot amber body. The head is white and foamy, frothy textured rising to about one finger. Decent retention and lacing is a mix of webs, sheets and spots.

S- A lot of melon and juicy cantaloupe bursts out of the growler as soon as it is opened. After some inspection a bushel of juicy tropical and stone fruits rises out of the glass. Mango, tangerine, peach and some citrus as well.

T- Becomes a bit more citrus forward here with a notable zesty bitterness coming to mind. Orange is quite big with a bit of lemon zest in there as well. The fruits from the nose carry over with mango, melon, cantaloupe, peach, apricot and general tropical fruits coating the palate.

MF- Medium bodied with a slightly creamy and frothy consistency. Carbonation still at a high level after a week in the growler. Finishes moderately bitter.

Very juicy fruity in the nose as well as the flavor but in the latter a nice bitter citrus zest hop feel opens up. Certainly a great "flagship" or staple of a brewery. I have had this a few times now and it seems to just get better and better.

The beer comes in a deep rich orange. Looks like fruit juice with a splash of blood orange.

The aroma explodes of tropical mango, peaches, papaya, mandarin orange, sweet nectarine, white peaches, with a touch of sweetness. Literally sugary tropical fruit candy.

On the palate, one first notices a creaminess that rolls on the tongue, almost as if oats were added, despite the beer being very clean and dangerously drinkable for its ABV. The beer offers nectarine, green mango, papaya, mandarin orange/tangerine. The middle has some green grassy herbal. A good amount of yeast dough comes throughout. The finish ends with grapefruit pith. How this beer flies off the palate and the very gentle bitterness makes this drink towards a 5% brew.

This beer tastes absurdly close to an HF brew, notably Susan. I give Susan the slight edge, but this is the 2nd best IPA I’ve had.
