Pours an opaque pale orange in color with a finger+ of pillowy white head. Aroma is a bit on the muted side but I get pineapple, grapefruit, orange, and mango. Taste hits the same notes as the aroma; lots of smooth tropical fruits with a touch of citrus and pineapple sharpness, finish leans lightly bitter. Mouthfeel is perfectly pillowy, medium bodied with moderate carbonation. This is an excellent beer, it's near perfectly balanced and super drinkable. I wish I had grabbed more than one growler.

Tap at The Farmhouse Burlington.
Slightly hazy dark yellow with a good sized long lasting head. Rich earthy citrusy grapefruit and pine with bits of sweet bread to counter. Very tasty clean well made brew.

Tasted from draft. Pours a super cloudy pale orange with thick white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma is big time tropical fruit. Notes of mango, passion fruit, pineapple and orange. Taste is incredibly well balanced. Mild to moderate bitterness with malt backbone. Really no bitter bite at all. I really think non IPA drinkers would love it. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel with no hint of alcohol. Flavors of oranges, grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, pine, biscuit sweetness. Incredible IPA.
