Very brite and the citrus notes are very nice on the back end. I've had this several times and without a doubt one of my all time favorites .

750ml swing top bottle poured into a tulip glass filled on 7/29

A: big fluffy tiny bubbled white head. Body is a hazy bright orange color.

S: Mango, pineapple purée very juicy with a light tangerine end. A little bit of peaches as well.

T: lots of mango and pineapple very juicy fairly bitter finish.

M: Medium bodied a little bit softer on the carbonation. Has a nice lingering fruit flavor on the finish.

O: Very impressive beer the fruit flavors explode and the beer still has a nice bite to it which seems to be lacking from some NE style IPAs.

On tap at Doc Ponds. Pours a hazy burnt orange with 2 inches of frothy head. Tons of lacing. Nose is lots of grapefruit and tropical fruits. Lime and pine. The taste is loads of tropical fruits. Pineapple, mango, guava, grapefruit and lime. Some stone fruits as well. Slightly dank finish with more tropical fruits. Some alcohol heat. Oily mouthfeel with a good amount of carbonation. Overall, awesome.
