look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a bright orange with minimal to no haziness. Big fluffy head quickly recedes but gives good lacing.

Smell is awesome. Up there with my two favs in this category - PtE and nugget nectar. Tangerines, lemon, hint of onion and pine.

Taste starts with a nice citrus hop bitterness and finishes more on the herbal side.

Mouthfeel is what you'd expect in an ipa-like beer, but oddly quaffable for 7.5

Overall a really great beer, but I'd prefer a bit more haze to make it easier to convince myself this isn't an ipa.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: clear; golden yellow; 2 finger head, long lasting with good lacing.

Smell: I wouldn't have placed it without reading reviews, but it does smell of Papaya; hints of malt and citrus, too.

Taste: Juicy malt on start; citrusy hops hit pretty quickly and leads to a good malty sweetness; finishes fairly dry with a lingering taste of grapefruit and dried tropical fruit. Pretty well balanced between malt and sweet.

Mouthfeel: medium creaminess with a good level of carbonation.

Remarks: Pretty complex and different. Excellent beer overall.
