Enjoyed on tap at Maple Shade location. Orange bodied, orange flavour mostly Complex, with lots of coconut and some tropical fruit, grapefruit. Smooth drinker, the best beer I had here, being near my hotel. Wasn't getting the lemon I would anticipate.

Growler poured into a tulip. Beer is amber and mostly clear with a good head, some lacing, decent retention and some carbonation.

Aroma is sweet with some hops in there, fruity more than anything, I like the aroma.

I didn't put two and two together until the other Matt told me. I took a drink and immediately said "Sorachi Ace hops" and then the other Matt said, "That's a Japanese hop, probably why they call it rising sun right?" Right, I'm an idiot. This is a sorachi ace bomb here. The creamy almost oily hop flavors give rise to this I swear coconut like sweetness present in all beers that use a lot of this hop. Overall it is a fine little IPA but Sorachi Ace aren't my favorite hop out there.

Growler shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!

The beer is orange and transparent, with a thick white head that leaves a thick sheet of lacing on the pint glass. The aroma offers some sweet malt, floral scents, and a light coconut flavor. Coconuts really come through in the flavor, giving the beer a lot of sweetness. Light floral notes. Mouthfeel is exceptionally creamy. Overall, a coconut bomb. An atypical IPA, Sorachi Ace hops steal the show.
