Turbid dark orange color with a modest but lasting bright white head. Citrus aroma. Creamy mouthfeel with modest carbonation. Orange hop flavor and strong hop bitterness. Not bad.

will need to give this another try, had it after Other Half IPA and it was too light on carbonation and feel in comparison. Look was hazy light yellow-orange color, smell was subtle not much citrus, taste enjoyable with lingering aftertaste on back of flavor, Feel lightly carbonated light to medium mouth feel. Overall a solid beer, as I said earlier need to give it a try on its own.

Had another- a significantly different beer than the first, not sure of the reason for the change but this thing was great, citrus, grapefruit and pineapple abound!!

Resiny with light, sweet cracker malt. Grapefruit pith, earthy twig; underlying a peppery and sweek mint. Tangerine, passionfruit, stonefruit. Great flavor that echoes the pine and grapefruit aroma. Bright feel, medium bodied on the edge of creamy. Some alcoholic phenols sneak their way in--delightfully so. Fast and active carbonation on pour, hazy but brought orange.
