12oz can poured into a snifter

A- pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a one-finger creamy white head that has good retention after the pour

S- citrus-forward aroma with plenty of tangerine, orange peel & grapefruit zest. Undertones of grass and pine, just a hint of toasted malt. Classic west coast ipa aroma

T- citrusy hops follow the nose with juicy tangerine notes, followed by zesty orange and grapefruit pith. The juicy citrus continues through the mid palate, before giving way to some grassy notes. The finish gives more orange an lingers with just a hint of toasted malt.

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp, semi-dry finish, abv hidden well

O- classic west coast ipa that is loaded with juicy citrus and hides the abv throughout, well done

Poured from 12oz can into Snifter glass. Canned on March 21st. Somewhat old so let's see what this is like.

L: Cloudy orange gold. Finger width white head recedes into a thin layer. Spotty lacing.

S: Juicy hops on the nose, to the point where my mouth watered heavily. Floral hops and caramel malt backnotes.

T: Juicy grapefruit and orange hop notes, faint floral notes with a good caramel backbone keeping the bitterness reasonably in check.

F: Medium bodied, higher carbonation, hops residuals linger.

O: Good beer.

On tap at 1502 OB Noodle House, into a pint

Dark, cloudy orange-brown color, frothy head with plenty of lacing. Signature Maui bouquet - floral, orange juice-y, caramelly malts. Flavors align, where the hops bend a bit spicy mid-sip. Semi-long finish with lingering bittersweet risiduals.

I have a soft spot for Maui brews. Big Swell was the first tasty craft beer I had in a can, so I tend to overrate. But it's not necessary here - this hits all the aspects needed in a big IPA, and is easy to throw back. I'll definitely be looking out for a 6.

Dark straw appearance with a nice head and just the right amount of carbonation. Fruity aroma. Great fruity taste without any alcohol aftertaste. There is no strong hoppy taste.
