Pours a hazed gold with 2 fingers of eggshell colored head. Somewhat better than average head retention & lacing

S: Citrus, a little tropical fruit, & peach

T: Tangerine, green melon, lime, & pomelo & dryness up front. More lime, green melon & tangerine as this & grapefruit, pineapple plus pronounced dryness. Finishes dry with pomelo, tangerine & lime with some pineapple acidic notes

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, nice balance

Very drinkable, pretty nice hazy IPA, not upper tier

Spectacular offering from a brewery noted for great beers. I enjoyed this refreshing masterpiece at home with some homemade chili (spicy). The beer not only stood up to the chili, but made the meal!

Poured into a Nonic.

Pours medium orange gold. A fabulous well-retained white head gives way to an outstanding lacing.

Aromas of orange, pineapple, mango on the fruit side. Some soapy floral notes.

The flavors follow the nose. Juicy but not a juice bomb. Citrus and tropical flavors with piney and floral notes in the finish.

Medium bodied. Smooth and creamy.

A stupendous looking brew that tastes really good as well.

16oz can. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of bubbly foam. It left sudsy trails of lace on the glass. It smelled of citrus, grapefruit, pineapple and sweet caramel. It tasted of toasted caramel, citrus, and a piney bitterness.

Perfect moderation on haze, beautiful light SRM, amazing retention of pillowy head. Smell is candied lemon, light pine, slight allium/dank. Flavor is sweet and fruity, I wish it was a bit more bitter with a drier finish. But mouthfeel is not syrupy, which is nice because that would’ve compounded with the sweetness in a bad way. A pretty nice one from TG. Glad I snagged 4 when I passed through Decorah last weekend.

Flavor: Strong flavors upfront of orange citrus, pineapple, citrus flower, more pineapple and citrus flower. A slight herbal quality. Then a light, clean citrus finish. More mango as it warms, but mostly dry and leans floral. An appreciable floral bitterness. (4.25)

Feel: Light to medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. A soft, yet clean and crisp finish. Some floral bitterness lingers. (4.50)

Compared to TG King Sue 6/17/22: Pours a darker, slightly clearer color. Stronger aromas. More tart pineapple and flower.

Compared to Pipeworks Water Balloon Toss Champs 7/27/22: Pours a lighter and hazier color. More aromatic citrus, citrus flower, pineapple on the aroma and flavor. Less sweet tangerine, blood orange, and peach. Winner: Radiant Haze

Compared to Toppling Goliath Soul Hunter 9/19/22: Pours a lighter, clearer color. More dank and sweet resinous berry, mango, and melon. Less citrus rind, pineapple, and citrus flower. Danker and more resinous, but this was aged a lot more.

Compared to Old Nation M-43 9/27/22: Pours a slightly darker color. Stronger aromas. More tropical pineapple and melon. Less orange/grapefruit citrus rind, pine, and floral note. Juicier, sweeter, and heaver. Leans more tropical.

Overall: A wonderful NEIPA here. This one has fantastic pineapple, flower, citrus notes with a floral twist. An appreciable floral bitterness is present. A clean and crisp mouthfeel is appreciable. Makes it so drinkable. Sort of reminds me of a blend between their PseudoSue and King Sue. Has the citrus flower of PseudoSue, but still some tropical notes of King Sue. Really enjoyed the pineapple, citrus flower, and cleanliness of this beer. (Rating: 4.33+)
*Would compare to Pseudo Sue,Citroid and any other citrus and flower IPA*

This beer is all over the place, in an interesting way. Unique combination of hops, and the flavor profile follows.
Wouldn’t be a daily drinker, but worth trying due to originality.
