750ml growler poured into a tulip. Enormous thanks to MattOC for this one.

Pours a hazy orange with a dense, frothy one-finger head that subsides over the course of a minute or so, leaving plentiful cobwebby lacing.

Smells...wow. Smells like orange juice laced with weed, if such a thing were to exist. Huge orange with pronounced mango and passionfruit underpinnings, as well as dank and earthy floral hop notes. Neck-and-neck with Bissell Brothers' The Substance for best-smelling single IPA I've ever had.

Taste follows the nose almost to a tee, and that is by no means a bad thing. Opens with a tremendous burst of fresh-squeezed orange juice, with passionfruit, mango, pine sap, and lightly toasted caramel malt appearing mid-palate. Initial sweet orange and tangerine note transitions smoothly into blood orange and ruby red grapefruit towards the mid- and back-palate, with a lingering citric and lightly earthy bitterness.

Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation, lush and slick.

Amazingly smooth, amazingly drinkable. Absolutely top-notch. Once again, huge thanks to MattOC for giving me this growler.

Thank you Kunckle Neil

Kinda orange colored? It was getting dark out. Smells like being teabagged by a hop monster. Or motor boating a hop goddess. I prefer that latter but the former seems to convey more "up in it" which is what I'm going for. Dank, dank, dank orange citrus aroma with an accompanying verdant leafy greenness. Tastes like it smells, I'm guessing that Julius is short for Orange Julius. Thick, heavy body laden with hop oil.

We did a comparison with Heady Topper and Julius emerged the victor if that says anything.
