12 oz can. Light golden color, thick white head slowly fades leaving lots of sticky lacing. Citrusy tropical aroma. Very tropical taste with light bready notes, a bit of yeast comes through with grapefruit peel and grassy bitterness in the end. Thin to medium slick feel.

Poured into an IPA glass.
A - Pours a bright hazy orange with a one inch thick head.
S - Aroma is sweet, like candied orange. Vary nice!
T - More malty than anything. Light on the citrus, fairly bitter on the finish.
M - Not as thick as a typical DIPA. Medium carbonation.
O - Lots of promise here but never makes it to the level of special.

Received in a trade. Shared with JLindros. Canned on 6/24

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a one finger head that fades to leave thin blanket.

S - Aromas of huge malt presence, caramel, cardboard, super faint citrus.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, huge old hops (which makes no sense) generic bitterness, really bland hops, no real citrus. Unfortunate.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, rather thin.

O - Overall this is a very underwhelming ipa. Really unfortunate considering this is a fresh can.

Serving type: can

Thanks to rudzud 6/24/16

Big creamy foamy head, fades semi slowly messy lacing, mostly clear honey orange color.

Nose candied fruit, smells like old ipa, fruity but generic syrupy candy, maybe a little herbal spicy hop, candied apple, candy malt, messy, so much like malt thing.

Taste more aged hops, candied fruit, apple, sweet syrupy malt and candy, big spicy earthy hop too, herbal like, big bitter earthy spicy hop finish.

Mouth is syrupy messy, lighter carb.

Overall just sad.

Unworldly. Cloudy orange. Intense citrus aroma. Slick, full, oily mouthfeel. Bravo make more. Soon.
