Collaborating with American govermental agencies and brewing teams aren't always easy. But if your the beer handlers of Dugges Ale, the the efforts are eventually worth it. Blending the two red hot beer styles of hazy IPA with imperial IPA and the results are as sunny as can be.

Delicatly silten and cast in a matte haze, the bright golden Sunshine Orchard builds a frothy cotton white cap before shining with citrus, tropical fruit and an broad herbal array. Sweet on the tongue, a light pastry flavor of fruit tarts and sherbet offer promises of tartness, succulence and sweetness as the first sip draws near.

As the beer invites the overcast of hop derived fruits over that of creamy cereal malts, the full fruit spectrum bursts to life with the citrusy brunt of white grapefruit, under ripened oranges, lemons and a pep of lime. Tropical with passionfruit, lychee and pineapple and a full taste of fruit cocktails are realized. Hints of dark berries and wine tease the late palate as a medium strong bitterness suggests matcha tea, botanical gin and fragrant woodsy fresh spruce.

Medium full in body the alcohol spice and peppery hp resin offer a sense of dryness, drinkability and refreshment despite allowing a vegetal spice of grass, stem and leaf to permeate the final taste. A long afterglow of fruit skins accompany the sprucy gin flavors for a crisp and succinct session overall.
