12 oz can with a July 2018 canning date from the Wall of Beer ($1.79 -- Clemson, SC).
Pours pale orange-amber, cloudy, and with a tall, creamy bone-colored head. Good retention and loads of very sticky lacing.
The aroma is a bit dank and reflects moderate strength for style. There are both evergreen and tropical fruit notes.
The flavor brings out more bready grains, less pine and plenty of hops, but with only moderate bitterness. Good balance.

Exciting find in Wegmans cooler. I quickly picked up a six pack and had one that night with dinner. Now enjoying another and I’m loving it. Great aroma after opening the can. Floral and citrus notes are obvious and also come through in the taste. Perfect carbonation and feel is fantastic. Some bitterness on the backend but very drinkable. This might be my current favorite

Big bright citrus hop aroma, with some mango underneath. Pours a nearly opaque orange with a dusting of white head. A touch of caramel sweetness starts off the beer, which then rolls into pine, pith, grapefruit, and a touch of sweet mango. This fades away leaving a long lingering bitter finish. Rich mouthfeel, with just enough carbonation to keep it from getting cloying. A very solid AIPA.

I tried this at the brewery. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had floral nose. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

I picked this up on a whim, a little disapointed in the selection at Downtown Crowne, which isn't usually the case. I guess they were cleaned ouit after the holiday weekend. Ironically, I have really enjoyed this old school IPA. The citrus and pine sap is only moderately bitter but full of oily flavor thatr hits the back of the tongue perfectly. This is intense but not overwhelming but fits the texture and low carbonation perfectly. Creamier and smoother than something this hoppy would normally be. Solid craft.

Favorite brew I've had in a long time. Much more to offer than the endless juice bombs that are taking over. Get it if you see it fresh. Seems to be flying under the radar. I buy them out at our local grocery store.

12 oz can, from the brewery...canned 7-18-18

The pour here is hazed, darker with a fuzzy peach kinda hue. Delicate webs of ringed lacing.

Sniff is of ripe fruit and hibiscus

Dank and delicious, more fruity/juice notes bounding....more tea/hibiscus hop notes in the rear and lingering in the finish.

Nice addition to the Orbital Tilt series...well worth a try

Not as dank or catty on the aroma or flavor profile as I had hoped, but this is my first time trying vic lupulin, so maybe expectations were just to high. Still great mouthfeel and great value
