4.76/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a hazy sunset orange color with a finger of a white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice ring of lacing. Smells of tons of dank, juicy, tropical fruits. Lots of pineapple, mango, papaya, lemons, grapefruit, and tangerines. Not much malt detected at all except for some carmel sweetness. Taste starts with a burst of dank tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, and papaya. Then the middle brings a carmel sweetness, along with more juicy tropical fruits, some lemons, and some grapefruit. The finish is great. More of the same flavors mentioned before, along with spicy rye notes, and some resinous qualities from the citra hops. Tons of dankness. The sweet, juicy tropical fruits blend nicely with the spiciness from the rye malt. Very low bitterness from the hops and extremely smooth, which would qualify this beer to be a pale ale even though it is 8% abv. Medium body with a crisp, creamy, and slightly oily mouthfeel. Uses the citra hop just as well as Zombiedust in my opinion and has an added element of complexity with the rye malt. Well done.

8.5 abv.
Pours hazy orange, some floating sediment, two finger rich head that slowly recedes to a thin lacing.
Big smell of pineapple up front, also sweet oranges, mango and green leafiness with a touch of pine. Nice hoppy smell atop a sturdy caramel malt aroma.
Punch of hops in the taste, packed with flavour, not with bitterness. The pineapple stays big, mango, papaya, nice tropical notes, on equal footing with sweet citrus. There's a light fruit jam feel, especially backed by the mild caramel backbone. Low pine notes, green finish, but not extremely bitter, leaving lots of fruit in the aftertaste.
Medium body, a bit oily, medium carbonation, no booze.
Great hops in this one, nicely handled, a great refreshing Summer beer with a bit more kick.

On tap at the brewery.

Pours like a thick DIPA: dark amber, cloudy, tight white head.

Smells goddamn amazing. Aside from Double Sunshine, this beer has the best aroma of any I've ever had to pleasure to huff. It's Citra, yes, but along with the usual mango nodes there's some more subdued fruit that pleasantly resembles a blue raspberry slurpee.

Tastes excellent, but not quite as excellent as the aroma had led me to anticipate. The mango/blue raspberry nodes start things off, then you get a big burst of regular ctirus ctira, and then it ends on nicely balanced--but not particularly exceptional--combination of bittersweet hopes and mostly bitter malt. Th-that'st eh only knock, I got, is that the malt base is just a tiny bit syrupy. Still, excellently done.

This, my friends, is the real deal. A+.

5/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Tenné/burnt orange body with an ivory head.

Aroma: Heavy fruit nose - Lemon, orange, papaya, and melon.

Taste: Hop forward with notes of orange, mango, honeydew, spice, and a crisp, hoppy, and malty finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, 'wet'; perfect.

Overall: This was my first from 18th Street Brewery, and it did not disappoint. Get this if you can, you will not regret it.
